Thanks for tuning in for another week of…
Though to be honest, I sometimes question my decision to pin this on one particular day. Your jokes are welcome all week long — you realize that, right?
Also, can I guarantee I will always post on a Monday? Can I guarantee I will even remember it’s Monday?
Of course not!
So. yeah. Thinking of renaming this baby. Top Contenders: Bad Joke Challenge or Bad Jokes Illustrated. If you have an idea, please add it in the comments.
Anyway, as to last week’s entries, we had some fun with them. So much so that I decided to do away with choosing only one joke – I’m sharing the whole lot with you.
First up, we have Lynette d’Arty Cross who offered us this great quote from writer Christopher Hudspeth:
I totally understand how batteries feel because I’m rarely included in things either.
By the way, Christopher Hudspeth lives in Tucson, Arizona. (As a former AZ gal, I just wanted to put that out there.)
Then Moonstone Mary — also from Tucson! — gave us another magical musical number:
I’ve heard the saxophone compared to a chain saw. I think this is inaccurate. You can tune a chainsaw.
I loved this joke because I don’t play saxophone.
Though if you do, have no fear. I went easy on the illustration mostly because I didn’t feel like drawing a chainsaw. You have to have imagine that part.
Following Mary’s comment, Andrew Reynolds pondered his own musical abilities…
I remember being taught to tune my violin but I have no idea how to tunafish.
I suggested he start with the scales. 😉
And so ends our musical jokes — pushing us straight into Dad jokes by two guys aren’t even Dads!
WD Fyfe popped in with this one:
What do you call the guy who’s lying at your front door?
Our last one is also found on Dad joke sites, I think because it’s an oldie and a bit off color.
This comes from Dave Ply:
Q. Why don’t blind people skydive?
A. Because it scares the crap out of their dogs.
This sparked a conversation on dogs skydiving — which totally happens by the way (and truthfully, blindness doesn’t prevent skydiving either).
Then I pondered whether anyone would try skydiving with cats and we had a good laugh over that, Dave wondering if they’d have to wear a suit of armor.
After a quick search, I found this (click on the picture to see the video):
So there you go.
Please note: No animals, fish, saxophonists or guys named Matt were harmed in the making of this blog post. (Batteries not included)
Remember, add your joke in the comments below and check back next week to see if it gets illustrated.
(And if you have a suggestion on a new name, add that too!)
