So yeah, having a huge existential blog crisis right now.
And while I’m sure you’d understand if Bad Joke Monday didn’t show up one week, in the end I decided to move ahead with it. One, because the very existence of this series came as a result of the pandemic – a tragedy in itself – but also because there is never NOT a time a tragedy is happening somewhere.
And maybe that’s why humor exists at all? It offers us a respite in the face of overwhelming sadness.
In any case, I will likely address the current crisis later this week, but for today we are giving you a small break from the serious stuff.
Another reason this will be a small break: I injured my wrist over the weekend working in the yard.
Not sure what happened – I think I sprained it? But I will say it made drawing kind of interesting and really really really slows down my typing.
His joke last Monday was a real winner. The best I’ve seen! I mean, I was really taken by it, primarily because he presented it so well (*cough* complimented me *cough*):
Outstanding illustrations this week!
A friend of mine tries to impress girls by drawing his Ford F-150.
He is a pickup artist.
Side note: You know what’s interesting about drawing with a sprained wrist? You use your arm more and make broader movements. Which somehow seems to work better?
As in, this was my first and only sketch when usually it takes me about three or four tries to get something presentable. So that’s interesting.
Also, update from my last post regarding the new Block Editor and how I thought the deadline for the switch was today: I was able to revert back to the Classic Editor for this post, meaning we’re getting a reprieve. Who knows for how long, but at least there’s that.
That’s all for now — I’m off to ice my wrist. If you have a joke to share, please do so in the comments. We could all use a laugh right now.
And please remember: always choose love. ❤️
