Welcome to yet another rip-roaring episode of Feeding on Folly’s Bad Joke Monday!
Let’s jump right into the festivities, shall we?
If you remember last week’s show, our winner (Eilene) garnered praise not only for her buggy offering, but for her fabulous composting skills.
And then... in the comments, who do you think snuck in a thematic joke and landed himself in first place?
Why, it was none other than Joe from Month at a Time Travel!
Congratulations, Joe — you’re this week’s winner!
Joe and his wife, Esther, have a lovely blog and you should definitely pay them a visit and offer your congratulations. Especially if you enjoy travel blogs, because theirs is fun and full of great pictures.
Unfortunately their traveling has been curtailed a bit due to the virus, but you can still catch up on their adventure into Chile where Joe took some great pictures of penguins. (You can read that post here.)
As for Joe’s joke, here it is in his own words:
You know why I refuse to compost?
You know what I liked best about Joe’s joke? It reminds me of a college professor I had. Sometimes in the middle of a lecture he’d throw out a little witticism just like Joe’s comment, in a completely deadpan manner.
Also, he smoked a pipe. I don’t know if Joe smokes a pipe. Maybe he should.
(Give it some thought, Joe.)
Speaking of composting, I planted some seeds recently. And by planted, I mean I kind of just threw them around and called it good. When it comes down to it, I’m a lousy gardener.
Or at least I thought I was until I found this:
How do you know you are a Master Gardener?
- There is a decorative compost container on your kitchen counter.
- You would rather go to a nursery to shop than a clothing store.
- You prefer gardening to watching television.
(Check – unless it’s a gardening program.)
- You plan vacation trips to arboretums and public parks.
(Did I tell you we visited the Desert Botanical Garden on our last trip to Phoenix?)
- Calloused palms and torn fingernails are a matter of pride.
So there you have it. Whatever you may have heard to the contrary — or what my plants may have told you — I’m a master gardener.
And here’s a garden related joke I’ll throw in for free:
What do you get if you divide the circumference of a peach by its diameter?
Now it’s your turn. Add your bad joke to the comments below and check in next Monday to see if yours wins!
(The only prize in this case is a bad illustration, but hey, at least it’s something.)
