Harrowing for whom, you ask (and kudos to you for knowing your who from your whom)? That remains to be seen. First, let’s get things underway with our next installment of…
To review: Jokes left in the comments of last week’s post get the spotlight this week. Complete with an illustration, should I feel like it.
Our first guest in the spotlight is Andrew Reynolds of Andrew’s View of the Week, who accomplished the unthinkable. He stumped me!
Seriously, do you understand his joke?
This morning my bedside light turned into a butterfly.
That’s the last time I buy a cheap lava lamp.
I actually had to ask Andrew to explain it to me. Talk about harrowing! (Or is that humbling? I always get those two confused.)
His answer: lava, larva.
(I know, I know. I thought the same thing!)
I worry about you people. I really do.
Next up, please give a warm welcome to our guest hailing from Canada, WD of WD Fyfe!
If you remember, last week I took a pass at illustrating WD’s joke. Meaning this week, I felt a bit of pressure to follow through.
And yet, he gave us this,
What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy? Don’t know, don’t care.
Now how do you suppose one illustrates that?!
No, seriously. How do you illustrate that?
Side note: you may have noticed how bushy my hair has gotten? (This is what happens when one goes six months without a haircut.) I asked Husband, “Back when I had long hair, was it this bushy?” and he said, “Yes.”
Waiting in the wings is another visitor from up north, step into the light Margy from Amusives!
Margy’s harrowing joke involved a man-eating monster!
What time was it when the monster
ate the Canadian Prime Minister?
Though considering his diet, maybe he’s not all that scary.
Nice one, Margy!
Our next guest is Eilene Lyon from Myricopia, who is a biologist. And given her joke, we now have reason to believe she dabbles in genetic experiments.
A harrowing thought, to be sure.
What do you get when you cross an angry sheep
with an emotional cow?
An animal that’s in a baaaaaaad moooooood!
Sometime we should ask her how she came by this information. For now, let’s move on to our next joke.
I wouldn’t say Moonstone Mary‘s joke is harrowing, exactly, though much depends on how you’d feel sitting in a crowded movie theater next to a couple cats, watching a musical about love, nuns, and Nazis.
What’s the favorite movie of cats?
The Sound of Mew-sic.
Finally, we reach our last guest of the evening, Lynette d-Arty-Cross from In the Net! and our third Canadian of the evening. (Bad Jokes must be popular up there.)
Lynette’s joke is, by far, the most harrowing of the bunch. (Proceed with caution.)
What’s it called when it’s raining ducks and geese?
Tell the truth, you didn’t think it harrowing until you saw it illustrated, did you?
Don’t worry, right now the sky is clear and the jokes are done. Be sure to leave one in the comments and check back next week to see if it gets illustrated!
