Bad Joke Monday gets infested!

Hi gang!

It’s Monday again and you know what that means? That’s right! Bad Joke Monday keeps returning, much like an uninvited guest. Or a cockroach.

Speaking of cockroaches — and all things bug-related — we’re going to head right into our selected joke from last week because it was just so darn good.

In truth, this joke met all of our high-minded criteria. Meaning it nearly made us pee our pants. The key word here is “nearly” because we don’t actually want to pee our pants.

This is what makes our criteria “high-minded.”

Anyway, the winning entry came to us via Eilene from Myricopia!


Eilene has a lovely blog, which you should visit now. She writes about history and genealogy, but other subjects come up as well. Really, what I love best about her site is that besides her great writing, I always come away knowing more than when I arrived. And you can’t say that about every blog.

For instance, not that long ago she had a post about composting where I learned that those avocado peels I’ve been tossing into mine weren’t going to decompose anytime soon, but the banana peels I was tossing out would?! Who knew?!

And you know, really all of us should be composting because it’s the best way to improve your soil, get your organic gardening mojo going, and just loving on nature.

Speaking of nature, did you hear about that gigantic butterfly they spotted recently in London? It’s considered the biggest butterfly in history!

Though there are some who say it’s just an Urban Moth.

Get it? Urban Moth (myth)… Hahahahahahaha

urban moth

Hmm. That might have one of those jokes that’s more fun to tell than to hear.

Oh well. Just thought I’d sneak one in on you. Here’s Eilene’s joke and it’s much better:

A grasshopper hops into a bar and sits down.
The bartender says “hey, we have a drink named after you!”
The grasshopper replies, incredulous, “You have a drink named Steve?”


Hahahahah — oh geez, I nearly did it again…

Okay, moving on, here’s another joke from me and let’s see if I can redeem myself:

Two beetles were born as brothers. The one left and traveled the world, visiting many exotic locations and impressing everyone.
The other one didn’t.
He was the lesser of the two weevils.



Pretty bad, right? Think you can beat it? Add your joke in the comments below and check back next week to see who won.

  1. Okay staying with musician jokes but adding the walking into a bar bit …

    Arnold Schoenberg walks into a bar. “I’ll have a gin please, but no tonic.”

    1. The beauty of this joke is that it’s so obscure, it requires explanation. Or at the very least a refrain of, “get it? get it? atonal music? get it?!” 😀

  2. Oh my! I’m a winner?! Oh gee, I am so flattered and honored. I know I can’t possibly live up to expectations this week. How about a bad botany joke?

    Freddy Fungus met Alice Algae and they took a lichen to each other. Their love’s been on the rocks ever since.

  3. As the first winner of Bad Joke Monday total congrats to Eilene. Been to her blog — Wow! My calendar has changed. It now reads, Day, Day, Garbage Day, Day, Day, Bad Joke Monday, Day. Anyway. What’s the opposite of irony? Wrinkly!

    1. Oh my god – we’re on the calendar?! Whoa!
      Love the joke, WD. Makes me think the key to dealing with wrinkly shirts is just confusing them with a witty, contrary form of humor. Win-win!
