Hey, we’re not above using click-bait. We figure if people are gullible enough to fall for it, then the joke’s on them.
Get it? Bad Joke Monday? Joke’s on them? Hahahaha! Oh gosh, I’m funny… *wipes eyes*
Okay, where were we? Oh yeah! It’s time for a very special,
What’s so special about it? Haven’t a clue. But let’s tackle the jokes that were left in last week’s comments and maybe something will present itself.
First up, Moonstone Mary (Etsy shop) gave us another musical number:
Good one, eh?
And speaking as someone who lives with a trumpet player, I can attest to its veracity. 😉
Next in line, Lynette d’Arty-Cross from In the Net! gave us this one:
What do you call someone who points out the obvious?
Someone who points out the obvious.
I rather liked this one, even if I wasn’t sure how to illustrate it. In the end, I went with something obvious.
Oh, here’s a funny thing: Andrew Reynolds from Andrew’s View of the Week repeated one! I mean, like, actually submitted a joke that someone else submitted the previous week!
I considered giving him a hard time, but the poor guy is in the midst of a major move. So what I did was scrounge around on his blog until I found an old joke he wasn’t using anymore:
I think what I did is called blogger-diving, but I’m not sure. Anyway, for a used joke, I think it looks pretty good here.
Next up, Eileen Lyon from Myricopia nearly forgot her joke, then came through just as we were closing up shop:
I came real close on not illustrating this one either, but figured it was worth it if only to draw an old lady wearing slippers.
Coming near the end, WD from WD Fyfe wowed us with this lengthy tale:
Cecil was a very busy scientist. He was so busy that one day he decided to make a clone of himself. Unfortunately, like a bad parrot, Cecil’s clone learned all the nasty words. Soon, every time the clone went out in public, he would unleash a string of obscenities that were just a total embarrassment.
At wit’s end, Cecil put the clone in the car and drove to a cliff overlooking the town. He took the clone to the edge and pushed him off. The next day, the police came and arrested Cecil because … (Wait for it!) …
It’s against the law to Make an Obscene Clone Fall!
Ain’t that a zinger? Man, those long set-ups all for the sake of a pun, they just slay me!
Speaking of puns, Dave Ply from Plying Through Life submitted not one, but two big groaners:
And now that we’ve reached the end of this week’s Bad Joke Monday, have you figured out what’s so special about it? …. No?
I’m pretty sure it’s the first time I illustrated every joke. I think that’s pretty special.
To celebrate, I’m going to share a video of something Husband found when I was wanting a song for my Egg to sing. I wound up going with my first choice, but this one is good both for its topic and its eggcessive use of punnery.
Before you go, don’t forget to leave a joke in the comments and check back next week to see it (probably) illustrated. 😀
