Bad Joke Monday takes a vacay, then gets punched for saying “vacay”

More about our supposed ‘vacation‘ later, for now there’s work to do.

That’s right people! It’s time once again for everyone’s semi-favorite thing to read when nothing else presents itself:

drawing of laughing faces

If you clicked here by accident with no idea what’s going on, each Monday people leave jokes, yada-yada, we draw things. Got it?

Let’s kick things off with a rockin’ good joke from Moonstone Mary, who offered us this charmer:

What is the best stereo equipment to get for a dog?
A subwoofer with surround hound.

Any chance I’m given to draw a dog, I take it…

I like to think dogs dance when we’re not looking. They just seem the type, don’t you think?

Our next joke comes from Lynette d’Arty-Cross from In the Net! and I loved the conversational tone she adopted to tell it:

I wanted to crack a joke about the road that
splits the Canada-US border,
but then I realized I would be crossing a line.

Great joke, eh?

In attempting to draw it, I veered off course a little. But as regular visitors to BJM can attest, veering off course is what we do naturally.

Speaking of neighbors, the next joke comes from the same general vicinity as Lynette.

Yet Another Canadian, Margy from Amusives made us chuckle with the following:

Why does a space rock taste better than an Earth rock?
Because it’s a little meteor.

Another interesting fact about BJM, we are not above recycling old illustrations:

The observant among you might recognize our female astronaut — though this time instead of grabbing a burger she’s reaching for a rock. (And yes, that is a picture of a real meteor rock.)

Whew. I’m getting tired, aren’t you?

Let’s see… Holy Moses, we have FOUR more jokes to do! We’ll be here all night at this rate!

Listen, I know what to do. Here are the jokes in quick succession:

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.

If you are getting on a lilo in the sea,
make sure you haven’t oiled yourself in Co-Co nut oil.

  • WD from WD Fyfe made us snort in an unladylike manner with this one:

A sandwich walks into a bar.
The bartender looks up and says
“Hey, we don’t serve food here.” 

A guy goes into a bar and says,
“I’ll have a Corona and two hurricanes.”
The bartender says, “That will be $20.20.”

If you’ve been paying attention, two of those jokes are set in bars. That, along with my general laziness, gave me the idea to put all four jokes in the same illustration!

Here’s the result (click to enlarge):

And with that, we come to the end of this week’s Bad Joke Monday. We hope you enjoyed the trip, despite all the detours and shortcuts we took.

As to our vacay, er, vacation, we will be taking the next three weeks off — though it’s really more for work than fun.

As mentioned before, I’m helping Sister Ade with a video project which is due at the end of the month. I’m also helping another Sister by editing her podcast, due to start at the end of the month. Plus, I edit one of the convent’s newsletters, which gets published at the end of every month.

All of these are Very Good Things, but they’re all happening At. The. Same. Time.

Something has to give and I’ve decided that something will be this blog and its feature product, BJM. Our next installment should arrive on October 5. Giving you plenty of time to leave a joke in the comments to delight fellow BJM visitors and to make sure Oct. 5 is one humdinger of a laugh fest.

Until then, keep smiling friends!

  1. As I was watching the rabbits outside our door the other day, it occurred to me that perhaps their favorite music is hip hop.

  2. Disaster! I somehow managed to unfollow Feeding on Folly. Techno-dinosaur strikes again. Anyway, I fixed the problem. Yes, by all means take a Vacay. I’ll just have to find something else to do with Monday! But to tide you over ’til BJM returns. A rabbi, a priest and a Presbyterian minister walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “What is this some kind of a joke?” cheers CJ

    1. Hmm… I wonder what happened? It’s both you and Margy affected… both Canadians… *gasp*! Our blogs are distancing themselves on account of the virus! Nooooooooo….

      Cool joke, btw. Made hubby laugh!

  3. This is strange – this blog post did not show up in the WordPress Reader (but the one before this one did) and according to WordPress, I am not following you anymore.

    A bear walked into a bar and said, “Give me a whiskey and …………. cola.”
    “Why the big pause?” asked the bartender. The bear shrugged. “I’m not sure; I was born with them.”

    1. You’re the second Canadian making that report. Methinks there’s a conspiracy afoot! 😉
      On a more serious note, hope the problem isn’t contagious. I value my northern buddies very much.
      Speaking of which, thank you for the bear joke. Can never have too many of those!

  4. And I’m going to be number 3. I also didn’t find your post until I went looking for it. What’s going on? Some sort of weird BJM lockdown? 😉

    By the way, how do you prepare your chicken? Me, I just tell them straight out that they’re gonna die. 😉

    I hope all goes well with your work projects.

  5. I am in awe of the four-part harmony of your multi-functional illustration. So much satisfaction, all in one pleasing wallop. You move in mysterious ways. Then again, we all do, once we reach a certain age… 😉

    1. Thank you kindly, good sir. Considering it was laziness on my behalf that produced the multi-functional illustration, I must say, I was rather pleased with how pensive Crabgrass Man turned out.
