Hey gang! We may be a week late from our promised return, but we finally made it. After a full month of humorless Mondays, it’s well past time for:
If you’re new here, these are the rules: People leave jokes in the comments and I attempt to illustrate them in some fashion.
Or at least, I think that’s the gist of it. Frankly it’s been so long since I last did this, all I remember is that it happens on a Monday.
Another weird thing? One of the jokes left on the last BJM disappeared! Like, vanished!
I can find no record for it anywhere. Not in my comments, not in the spam folder, not even in my Admin page.
It’s almost like it’s been kidnapped. Or rather, jokenapped! (gasp!)
It was actually a pretty great joke so I wrote it down. That’s how I know it happened.
According to my notes, it came from someone called Rhedbuds:
Pretty good, right? So good, I couldn’t resist illustrating it:
Get it? Duck face… selfies?
Listen, if any of you know a blogger by the name of Rhedbuds, could you please leave their link in the comments? I’d like to give them proper credit.
Also, while I have no proof, I blame the new WP block editor for the jokenapping. Block Editor is an evil abomination that deserves a slow, painful death.
Okay, enough of that. Back to the fun!
Lynette D’arty-Cross from In the Net told a joke about another feathered friend of ours:
How do you prepare your chicken?
Me, I just tell them straight out that they’re gonna die.
Such a noble sentiment for a chicken.
Next up, Moonstone Mary stayed with an animal theme by contemplating their musical taste:
As I was watching the rabbits outside our door the other day,
it occurred to me that perhaps their favorite music is hip hop.
By the way, we have a fox in the neighborhood! I first saw him (her?) about a week ago in our backyard, though he/she moved so fast, I wasn’t entirely sure what I saw. Only that it was too big for a cat, but much too swift for a dog.
Then a few days later, Husband and I got a real good look at it as we were driving by the golf course. My guess is he was hoping to score an eagle. (Ba-da-bing!)
Back to the real jokes: WD from WD Fyfe told an oldie but goodie,
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?
And thank you, WD, for including a Presbyterian. Nice touch.
Next up, Margy from Amusives combined the Animal theme with WD’s scene:
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.”
The best thing about this joke? I already drew the bar, all I needed was a bear!
Finally we come to our closing shot — Andrew from Andrew’s View of the Week cleaned the table with this one:
What is covered in green, has four legs and if it fell out of a tree would kill you?
A pool table.
Sometimes I get the feeling Andrew likes to challenge me, drawing-wise.
Here’s what I came up with:
And that’s all for this week, my friends. I hope this brought a smile to your face and maybe a few chuckles to share with others.
Speaking of sharing, remember to leave a joke in the comments for next week and then check back to see if it gets illustrated (or jokenapped)!
Until then, keep smiling!
