Hi gang! According to our schedule it’s time for another,
If you remember last week’s episode, we asked your opinion on renaming this feature.
We had no idea how attached some of you are to our current moniker, nor how calendar-challenged a few of you are.
I mean, some of you claimed this was your main source for knowing it was a Monday?
I wasn’t sure if you were being honest or offering another bad joke. Even so, I worry about you people. I really do.
In any case, due to popular demand, for the time being this will remain Bad Joke Monday.
However in a few weeks I’m supposed to return to work. Should that be true, I’m not sure how well I’ll do keeping this feature running while working full-time again.
Besides which, I sense interest in Bad Jokes is waning. So what the future holds I cannot say, except to offer a warning that some of you might want to buy yourself a day planner.
With that out of the way, let’s get to this week’s illustrations, shall we?
First up, this one was my favorite because it was the easiest to draw. Therefore, Lynette D’Arty Cross from In the Net! is my current BFF.
Why was the cat afraid of the tree?
Its bark was very scary.
Note to self: need to figure out a better coloring system. The drawing looked great on paper. Scanned? Not so much.
Next, my second favorite because I’m proud of how the hands turned out. (Why are hands so hard to draw?!)
MoonstoneMary offered us another musical gem:
How can you tell if a singer is at your door?
They can’t find the key and don’t know when to come in.
Aren’t those great hands?! Still need to work on coloring though. Dang, I really had that dress looking pretty, too.
Next, my third favorite. It was an action shot, therefore a bit more challenging.
This one came from Dave Ply from Plying Through Life:
What do sprinters eat before a race?
Nothing. They fast.
You can see the coloring is better here. That’s because I used my watercolor markers. Problem is, I only have five of them.
Fourth favorite: Eilene Lyon from Myrocopedia opted to challenge the strength of our imagination.
Sunday and Monday get into a fight, who wins?
Sunday. Monday is a weekday.
Seriously, how do you draw a day of the week? I settled on this,
Not too bad, eh?
Coloring-wise, this used my other three watercolor markers, plus pencils which are scan-adverse. Also, I’ve been adding skin tone but this is the first time it actually shows up? (On Sunday). *sigh*
My God, Andrew from Andrew’s View of the Week, what have you got against me?
I mean, how did you expect me to illustrate this?!
If a tin whistle is made of tin, what exactly is a fog horn made out of?
I think he deserved it. Don’t you?
That’s it for this week. If you want to play along, leave your joke in the comments and check back later to see if it gets illustrated.
And don’t worry. I won’t ditch you in the fog.
