Absentmindedly, I nearly forgot it was Monday.
Then I flew to the drawing table rapidly and cheerfully scribbled out a few hasty drawings for this week’s episode of…
Weekly, people diligently leave jokes in the comments and the next week, said jokes are seemingly illustrated. Whether this is a wise course of action, no one fully knows. And yet, scarcely anyone complains.
Let’s hop to it, shall we?
Firstly, let’s complete our Thanksgiving festivities with a delightfully told pun from Andrew of Andrew’s View of the Week:
Why was the turkey arrested?
The police suspected fowl play.
Also in a Thanksgiving frame of mind: WD from WD Fyfe gave us two… naturally,
What did the turkey say to the farmer?
Why did the turkey cross the road?
He wanted to make everybody think he was a chicken.
Honestly charming, don’t you think?
Moving on, we come to our third contestant… er, jokester. Moonstone Mary chimed in with her predictably witty brand of humor,
What do you say to a banjo player in a three piece suit?
Will the defendant please rise.
By now you may be wondering what’s with all the adverbs? Blame it on the next two participants who led me down the dark path of excessive adverb-age.
First it was Ann from Seeking Divine Perspective — she’s a first time contributor to Bad Joke Monday! Whoo-hoo!
You better check out her blog, okay? Otherwise we might look bad. (Though Ann is far too nice to hold it against us.)
Here are Ann’s adverbial jokes:
“My girlfriend broke up with me,” he said ruthlessly.
“I’ve gotta be careful with this chainsaw!” he said off-handedly.
Here’s Margy’s contribution:
“That’s the last time I’ll pet a lion,” Tom said offhandedly.
That was unexpectedly fun, I must say!
Okay, I’ll give it a rest. From here on out, our adverb usage will be purposely limited.
Our next guest also offered two jokes and funny ones at that, despite their woeful lack of adverbs. They are from our Arizona friend, Mesa Cheryl:
How did the cheeseburger introduce his wife?
Hey, meat patty.
What did the llama say when it got kicked out of the house?
Alpaca my bags.
I finally had a reason to draw a llama. I can’t begin to tell you what that means to me.
*wipes away tear*
Okay, where were we? Oh yes, our next joke!
Coming to us from Colorado, the clever Eilene from Myricopia, nearly stumped us until we said the joke out loud,
A termite walked into a bar and asked, “Is the bartender here?”
If you’ve been keeping count, so far we’ve had 10 jokes and six illustrations. That’s a first for Bad Joke Monday! Meaning we’re either just hitting our stride or about to lose our mind. Possibly both!
For our last joke of the day, Lynette d’Arty-Cross from In the Net! gave us a real beauty:
Two wrongs don’t make a right, but two Wrights make an airplane.
And with that soft landing, we say farewell to another episode of Bad Joke Monday. Be sure to leave a joke in the comments and check back next week for the illustration. (Unless we lose our mind, then who knows?)
Until then, keep smiling my friends!
