Hello all and welcome to another exciting episode of Bad Joke Monday, where this week we hit a major milestone!
Or at least we think we did. We might be wrong.
We don’t think we’re wrong… I mean, we researched it… pretty sure we’re right…
Only if we’re wrong it would be kind of embarrassing… but if we’re right, it’s big news… kind of like… um…
What are we talking about again?
Oh, right – the milestone! Okay, I think this is the first time a Non-Blogger has won the coveted Bad Joke-of-the-week prize. Which will thrill her terribly, I’m sure, as well as give hope to all the non-bloggers in our midst.
(At least I don’t think she has a blog? Her comment didn’t link to one and a search on WordPress Reader gave me squat. Though she does have an Etsy shop which I will link shortly.)
If you haven’t guessed by now, our winner this week is MoonstoneMary!
If you click on Mary’s picture above (that’s her with the horn), it will lead you to her Etsy shop where she sells some lovely handmade jewelry. However you’ll note her business is on hiatus right now, so you’ll have to wait until June 1 to place an order.
Note to Mary: If I’m mistaken about your blog status, please correct me in the comments and leave a link if you have one. Otherwise, we shall assume you have broken the glass ceiling with your Bad Joke Monday win. (Trophy is in the mail.)
As for Mary’s joke, it struck a chord…
What do you get when you throw a piano down a mine shaft?
A flat minor.
Quite the tuneful joke, don’t you think?
You know, not that long ago I complained about having to draw a set of drums. Compared to a falling piano, drums are child’s play.
Oh well. At least the miner was fun to draw, and he got me to thinking about other work-related humor. So I’m going to tell you two jokes related to work.
The first one I’m not going to draw because I’m kind of stealing it, though I don’t know who I’m stealing it from.
You see, it was a comic I read maybe 15 years ago and it was very edgy and dark and therefore I loved it very much. Sadly, I can’t remember the name of the comic, only that it was one of those single panel ones, which in my opinion are often better than your average comic strip.
Anyway, you’re gonna have to visualize it:
The scene is a post office and the customer at the counter is being extra nice to the postal worker and all the people standing in line look nervous.
At the front of the line is one of those signs like you see at a construction site “____ days without an injury” only this sign says, “3 days since employee opened fire with an Uzi”.
The caption: “Making your reputation work in your favor.”
Oh man, that made me laugh so hard! I had that comic on my fridge, that’s how much I loved it.
(By the way, I’ve been told my sense of humor can be a little twisted.)
Okay, here’s another work-related joke and in this one, no one dies:
A programmer is told by his wife to go to the store for some butter, and she says, “See if they have eggs. If they do, buy a dozen.”
So he goes to the store and buys 12 packs of butter.
Because they had eggs.
I found this funny but I honestly don’t know how well it relates to programmers. Maybe Andrew can let us know in the comments if it rings true. 😉
And now it’s your turn — add your bad joke below and remember to check next week to see if yours wins!
