For those of us in the U.S. of A., after this past week of ups and downs and constantly refreshing our news feed to get the latest election results, I’d say a bit of humor might be in order. Even bad humor.
As a reminder, last week people left jokes in the comments for us to illustrate this week. If that sounds like madness, it’s only because it is.
To open things up, Andrew from Andrew’s View of the Week kept to the season with an apple riddle:
Next, Moonstone Mary dropped in from her moving duties to delight us with this one:
How many tuba players does it take to change a light bulb?
One to hold the bulb and two to drink ’till the room spins.
The observant among you may have noticed the tuba player looks a tad familiar? It’s true. He arrived here from a previous post.
Fact is, I’m a big believer in recycling, especially when it comes to me having to draw a tuba. (The empty beer bottles were added to make it look relevant.)
Moving on with our pedal to the metal, Lynette d’Arty-Cross from In the Net! shared a joke from a young friend of hers:
What do you call a dog who loves car races?
A lap dog.
This may come as a shock to you, but I often have to use the old Google to give me ideas of what to draw or how to draw them. I haven’t decided if that’s cheating or not.
On the plus side, I sometimes come across cool things while… um… researching. (Yeah! That’s what we’ll call it!)
Such as when I googled “dog in car”, I found a video of some people in New Zealand who are teaching dogs how to drive cars.
Because… you know… dogs driving cars. What could go wrong?
I really love how chill that dog looks. That’s why I used him as a model for my comic.
As for dogs driving cars, I’m not sure I’d be real keen on that. Though we used to share residence with an Australian Shepherd and I would have trusted her to drive me anywhere.
Last, but in no way least, WD from WD Fyfe dived into the depths with this baby:
What sits at the bottom of the ocean and twitches?
A nervous wreck!
You know how I said I often, um, do research to come up with ideas? Other times an idea pops into my head right away and I just draw it.
Such was the case with WD’s joke. I read it on Saturday, which is when our election was finally called.
That’s it for this week, friends. Be sure to leave a joke in the comments and keep smiling!
