As noted in last week’s post, BJM was cancelled for the 2021 season. Will this stop us from producing subpar content and illustrations of dubious quality?
Of course not! It is subpar content and dubious quality that made us what we are today!
Or not! (Always best to keep some mystery alive.)
As it happens, last week we requested holiday inspired humor. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with other jokes too.
For instance, Margy over at Amusives gave us one that lacked a Christmas theme yet made me giggle:
I’ve started investing in stocks: beef, chicken, and vegetable.
One day I hope to be a bouillonaire.
Back when we lived in Colorado, we had a little Westie who had trouble with the snow. That first time she went out in it and squatted?
Honestly didn’t know she could jump that high.
Husband, being the swell guy he is, shoveled a path just for her to do her job. Forever after that, she’d wait for him before heading out in the snow. (She was a smart dog.)
Staying on this winter theme, WD from WD Fyfe delighted us with another snowman joke:
Why was the Snowman opening the bags of carrots at the grocery store?
He was picking his nose.
Moving into Christmas now, Moonstone Mary gave us one that included her signature element: Music.
Have you heard what the duck’s favorite Christmas carol is?
In the Beak Midwinter.
What are they gonna do? Cancel us?)
Since we’re in Christmas now, we must have a couple Santa jokes. Enter Eilene Lyon from Myricopia, who gifted us with this one:
Why does Santa go down the chimney on Christmas Eve?
Because it soots him.
My only explanation for this illustration is that I got stuck thinking about chimneys and smoke, which then led to smoking like a chimney, which then made me think about those cigarette ads they used to do with Santa. (Remember those?)
Yeah, I know. It needs work.
Moving on, Andrew from Andrew’s View of the Week gave us this one:
How many gifts can Santa fit in an empty bag?
Just one. After one, the bag isn’t empty anymore …
Moving us ever so gently toward a sweeter path, we have a little rhyme from grAnnie Roo of Roo’s Ruse (her site is currently – sadly – on hiatus):
The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine
And forced him to land behind enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
When the Baron cried out, “Merry Christmas, mein friend!”
As much as I love Peanuts, I’m going to pass on illustrating this one because I couldn’t do it justice. But also, I’m not sure it’s legal?
So instead of risking a lawsuit, I found this video of my favorite song from Charlie Brown Christmas. Please enjoy:
Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown.
And with that, we bring another Bad Joke Monday to a close. As a reminder, our last episode airs on December 28th – just 14 days away! If you haven’t left a joke before, now’s the time to do it.
Leave it in the comments below and be sure to check back next week for your (possible) illustration!
Until then, keep smiling friends!
