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:
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:
- Andrew from Andrew’s View of the Week made us a laugh with this:
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.
- Miriam from My Window gave some good advice:
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.”
- Finally, Diane from Ladies Who Lunch Reviews knocked it out of the ballpark with this homer:
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!
