Hey ho, here we go again friends! It’s time for another…
In case any of you are new to the proceedings, WELCOME!
Here’s the lowdown: Each week, readers are invited to leave a joke in the comments. The following week, I post the jokes with an illustration.
Or at least, that’s the theory. I retain the right to veto any joke due to difficulty in drawing, offensive nature of said joke, or perhaps I’m just not feeling it that day.
That being said, based on last week’s jokes, you’re either testing me or getting waaay too confident in my drawing abilities.
At least Andrew Reynolds from Andrew’s View of the Week gave us something sweet to work with:
Why did the baby strawberry cry?
His mother was in a jam.
A sad tale, is it not? And yet, you can almost smell the toast as it browns… mmm…
Our next joke told a different tune: Moonstone Mary tempted fate by telling a clarinet joke — to a clarinetist!
What is the difference between the sound of a clarinet and a cat in heat?
Nothing, if the cat is healthy!
I really should take offense and yet, there’s a reason no caption was necessary for this drawing. It’s universally understood.
So if you’re keeping track, so far we’ve had one heartbreaking joke and one soul-crushing joke. What should come next, eh?
It’s none other than Eilene Lyon from Myricopia who threw us under a bus! Err… I mean, RV:
Why is the RV so obedient?
Because it goes where it’s towed to.
Seriously, I sweated over how to illustrate this one. (Though it may have the been the humidity.) Anyway, I came up with this…
First time drawing an RV/camper. I thought the curtains were a nice touch.
Finally, we come to our most serious challenge. The one that nearly did us in: Lynette d’Arty-Cross from In the Net! gave us this…
Did you know that diarrhea is hereditary?
It runs in your genes.
(get it? jeans?)
Not only was I baffled as to to illustrate this one, I couldn’t imagine anyone actually wanting to see it. I mean… ewww!
But listen, don’t worry. I avoided a true representation. Instead, I lifted a laundry gag I heard somewhere because… it kinda relates?
And there we have it, my friends. Four jokes, four dubious illustrations, one more Bad Joke Monday under our belt.
Now we hand it back over to you: Leave a joke in the comments and check back next week for its (possibly related) comic!
