Was it laziness on our part or the quality of jokes on yours? Only time will tell.
For now, let’s get started for it is time once again for…
If you’re a visitor to these parts, here are the rules (such as they are): Each Monday, people who rarely get out of the house leave jokes (or reasonable facsimiles thereof) in the comments. The next Monday, we endeavor to illustrate them in some vaguely related manner. Hilarity ensues.
If that doesn’t make sense, no worries. We’ve been baffled by this mess from the beginning. Our recommendation is that you sit back and try not to worry about it. That’s what we do.
Our first joke of the day comes from Margy from Amusives, who gave us this beauty:
A vulture boarded an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons.
The stewardess looked at him and said,
“I’m sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger.”
Good one, right? So good, I saw little reason to deviate from it for my illustration.
Oh! And this was my first opportunity to draw a vulture! I was pretty excited about that. Too lazy to come up with my own joke, sure. But excited, nonetheless.
Our next joke comes from Andrew of Andrew’s View of the Week, and I stayed true to the course with his witticism as well:
To fix a broken pizza, just use tomato paste.
Why mess with a good thing, am I right?
But surely with the next one, I’ll have to put in more effort?
Nope! Moonstone Mary kept the good times rolling with this ditty:
I saw something strange watching a pianist online the other day.
He was banging his head against the keys on the piano.
And then it occurred to me he was playing by ear.
Is it goofy? Sure! But goofy in a good way, so we’ll take it.
Speaking of goofy, Lynette d’Arty-Cross gave us one that is as silly as it is brilliant:
What do you call a fish with no eyes?
I confess, I was at a total loss how to draw this one, meaning I was thisclose to having to put in some actual effort. Then Husband came up with the idea of sunglasses and a cane, and boom, I had it! (And here you thought I was the creative one.)
We have one more joke for the day. (Let’s call it the best of the worst.) It comes from WD from WD Fyfe:
How does a dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac spent her time?
Staying awake all night wondering
if there really is a dog.
As much as I loved WD’s joke, I wasn’t sure how to draw this one either. Just when I thought I was going to have to put on real pants and get to work, I had an idea.
Best thing was, I didn’t even have to take off my yoga pants!
Though I should give credit to my cats because they’re the ones who gave me the idea…
Let this be your motivation. If you have pets, start doing yoga. They LOVE it.
And that’s all for this week, my friends.
Be sure to leave a joke in the comments and remember to tune in next Monday!

Loved the down dog cartoon (and the original joke) – that has to be one of my favorites now.
Which makes me wonder what is the best stereo equipment to get for a dog?
A subwoofer with surround hound.
Haha — love that joke! And I need more experience drawing dogs, so thanks for that, too. 😉
I was walking around the neighborhood when I saw a man slumped over his lawn mower crying. I stopped to talk to him – turns out he was just going through a rough patch …
Love it! You’re really raking in the laughs today. 😉
Oh my gosh, loving the jokes. And cat yoga! Like goat yoga, only softer lol! Anyhow, here’s my joke! A guy goes into a bar and says “I’ll have a Corona and two hurricanes.” The bartender says that will be $20.20.”
Oh my — I haven’t heard that one! That’s hilarious… and just a wee bit sad, but mostly hilarious! 😀
Wow, the jokes keep getting better and better! And I love your drawing of the dead raccoons – the ‘x’s for the eyes are brilliant.
I’m going to have to do a blog post called “Bad Joke Monday – Content Stolen from Feeding on Folly”. But I won’t steal the artwork…
This week my contribution is a recent one from my blog… again:
Why does a space rock taste better than an Earth rock?
Because it’s a little meteor.
But is it theft if you give credit? Whether it is or not, steal away, Margy.
Love the joke, too. (Forgot to mention on your recent post, yes, I’ve been to Meteor Crater. It made quite an impact. 😉
There you go – another Meteor joke!
These are funny … I especially love the fish with no i! LOL!
Thanks, Sandy! I had fun drawing that one. 🙂
These drawings are terrific! A well illustrated joke is the best joke.
And, I wanted to crack a joke about the road that splits the Canada-US border, but then I realised I would be crossing a line. 😉
Haha — that’s a great one! Love the ‘not telling a joke but gotchya it’s a joke!’ quality of it. 😀
I can’t get past the photo of you being mildly violated by the felines. (That IS you, right? Because if it’s not, there might be some litigation in your future concerning inappropriate sharing.) And what’s up with that lonely chair in the background? Was there an incident that resulted in a time-out session?
Yes, that’s me and the room I’m in is our basement, which we haven’t bothered decorating yet. So far it has a futon and a tv — and apparently a wooden chair. Why it’s there, I have no idea, but I have a hunch one of the cats was involved. 😉
[…] Bad Joke Monday takes it easy […]
I do enjoy the jokes and the drawings are great.
By the way, if you are getting on a lilo in the sea, make sure you haven’t oiled yourself in Co-Co nut oil.
I had to look up what a lilo is — we Americans are so boring, we just call it them air mattress thingys. Though we do know not to oil up before getting on one! 😉
Great illustrations, Christi! Love the dog joke 🙂
Thanks! I rather liked that one too. 🙂
As we used to say in radio, “the hits just keep on coming.” BJM continues to inspire me with vulture jokes (cool vulture BTW) pasta jokes (love the tongue) and yoga (cats and dogs, optional.) But now this week and you know this had to happen eventually: A sandwich walks into a bar. The bartender looks up and says “Hey, we don’t serve food here.” cheers!
Hey, were you in radio?! I hope so, because just the thought of it pleases me immensely. I picture you being like the guy from Northern Exposure — remember that show? And he’d wax philosophically, maybe read poetry… totally you. Except you’d tell great bad jokes, also. 😀
Nothing quite so romantic. Although I did have this fantasy that I could be the cool Late Night guy whispering to people in the darkness but it never happened. cheers
[…] you clicked here by accident with no idea what’s going on, each Monday people leave jokes, yada-yada, we draw things. Got […]
OK, now that it’s Monday in Japan:
A duck walks into a pharmacy and asks the pharmacist if they carry Chapstick.
The pharmacist said, “of course!”
The duck said, “Great! I’ll take some. Could you put it on my bill?”
My deepest apologies for so tardy a response! I’ve been buried in work and only just now coming up for air.
Thank you for contributing one duckie of a great joke! 🙂
These are all great, Christi! Sorry I’ve been away. I’m still rolling back into “real” life here.
No problem, Eilene. As you’ll note by the lateness of my response to your comment, I’ve been rolling back into real life too. Still not there, frankly. 😉
