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!
