Bad Joke Monday goes off-script

Hey gang!

Another week has passed, meaning it’s time for that campy display of buffoonery we call,

drawing of laughing faces

So nice of you to join us.

For those of you tuning in for the first time, here’s how it works: each week people leave jokes (or reasonable facsimiles thereof) in the comments and the next week, those same jokes are magically transformed into illustrations! (Or reasonable facsimiles thereof.)

I can tell you’re as excited as I am, so let’s not waste another minute.

To start off this episode, we’re thrilled to report we had another first-time entry!

Our blogger buddy and possible sister in an alternate universe, Rhonda from Pollyanna’s Path, took the plunge with this joke,

Why didn’t the lifeguard save the hippie?
Because he was too “far out”!!

Here’s hoping Rhonda continues tossing us a funny line every now and then. She’s pretty good at it.

Also good at the funnies, Lynette d’Arty-Cross from In the Net! took inspiration from one of our favorite comedians (Jim Gaffigan) with this one,

Every night before I get my hour of sleep, I have the same thought: well, there goes another day where I pretended that I know what I’m doing. Most of the time I feel completely unqualified to be a CEO. I call that part being awake.

My illustration isn’t exactly on script, but I figured it might help out Lynette a little. If nothing else, it might prove useful during bad hair days.

Next up, WD from WD Fyfe kept the Halloween spirit alive with this haunted tale:

What happened to the guy who didn’t pay the exorcist?
His house was – wait for it – re-possessed.

A few months ago, I lost contact with some of the blogs I follow. At first I thought it was just one of those things. People blog, then they stop blogging, and then… (actually, no one knows what happens after that).

Then about a month later, some of the bloggers who follow this blog suddenly discovered they weren’t. It was as though FoF went missing from their Reader!

And then, just last week, one of our regular Bad Joke Monday participants had her comment sent to the netherworld!

Shocking, but true!

And beings how the Netherworld closes at 5 pm, I had to scoot on over there quick-like to recover Moonstone Mary’s joke. Here it is,

I think I know which ghoul is the best dancer.
It would be the Boogie Man.

Mary’s comment also included a note to say she’s in the process of moving right now, so likely won’t be tuning in for awhile. We wish you well, Mary. (Stay clear of the Netherworld, okay?)

Seriously, though. Is Feeding on Folly possessed? Are such things possible? … or could it be my own incompetence?!

Naaaahhh. We’re definitely possessed.

Our last joke of the day comes from the ever dependable funny man, Andrew Reynolds from Andrew’s View of the Week,

How do you scare a snow man?
Get a hairdryer.

And with that warm ending, another Bad Joke Monday comes to a close. Unless….

Yep! We’re going off-script!

I’m sure most of you are aware that for those of us in the United States, tomorrow is election day. (Your prayers are appreciated.)

The morning after the 2016 presidential election, I posted this. A lot has happened since that day and sometimes I wondered if my stoic message of “Don’t panic!” was appropriate. Recently I reviewed it and all I can say is, I stand by it. Panic is never good choice. (If you don’t believe me, read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.)

The reason I bring this up is that the post included a recipe for cookies. I stand by those, too. The cookies are best if you refrigerate the dough overnight, so I recommend you mix up a batch tonight and have them ready to bake on Tuesday. (Or just eat the dough. You do your thing.) They are a balm for the anxious soul.

And if you’d like a distraction from all the craziness, this is lovely.

Back to the script: that’s all for this time. Be sure to leave a joke in the comments and check back next week to see the illustration.

Hugs and kisses! 💗

  1. Well, I was eating my lunch and bad joke Monday popped up. So I decided the next box to be packed could wait a few minutes. I also took the time to take my horn in to my instrument repairman, who is actually a tuba player. So this one is for friend Ken.

    How many tuba players does it take to change a light bulb?
    Three! One to hold the bulb and two to drink ’till the room spins.

  2. I firmly believe that possession is afoot, and not just at FoF. Lately, nary a day goes by when someone I KNOW has been following me suddenly follows me again. Mix this in with the questionable spectacle of re-reviewing a friend’s post and a comment that I KNOW I left is no longer there. I’d blame the Trump administration, but I KNOW they don’t have that kind of focus and follow-through. So the quandary continues…

    1. Thank you for validating my suspicions. Paranormal activity is definitely afoot!
      Of course, beings how paranormal can describe anything “beyond” or “outside of” normal, it may still apply to the Trump administration, so they’re not off the hook. In either case, demonic possession or Trump, an exorcism is in order. You wanna go halfsies?
