Penultimate is a good word, don’t you think? It sounds so much brainier than “next to last.”
Anyway, here we are, closing in on our final,
But as long as our lights are still on, we’ve got some jokes to tell. Last week we had several to choose from in the comments, so we have quite the episode for you today.
Including a very special celebrity appearance! (*gasp*)
To start us off, Andrew Reynold’s from Andrew’s View of the Week was showing his anxiety for 2020 to be over, as he jumped right into New Year’s,
What’s the problem with jogging on New Years Eve?
The ice falls out of your drink.
Good advice, eh?
Though let’s not get too ahead of ourselves because we haven’t had Christmas yet!
Gifting us with another ready-made illustration, Lynette D’arty-Cross from In the Net! gave us this one:
Pretty funny, yeah? (Thanks, Lynette!)
Moving on, Margy from Amusives treated us to a rash of reindeer-related raillery:
What do the reindeer use to wipe down the sleigh? Santa-tizer.
Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeer? No, they already have names.
What is a reindeer’s go-to cleaning product? Comet.
I followed her lead and came up with this:
Also feeling generous with the jests, Dave Ply from Plying Through Life gave us several:
Did you hear about the kid who was scared of Santa?
He was Claus-trophobic.
What should you sing at a snowman’s birthday party?
Freeze a jolly good fellow.
What kind of Christmas music do the younger elves like?
What did one snowman say to the other snowman?
“Can you smell carrots?”
That last joke was illustrated a couple BJMs ago, so we opted to illustrate the snowman birthday party instead (on account of how I like drawing snowmen):
WD from WD Fyfe gave us this one:
It’s a little known fact that Santa actually pays the elves.
But, financial institutions are a little skimpy at the North Pole so the elves keep their money in … a snowbank.
Last joke, Moonstone Mary gave us a great one:
Who is Santa’s favorite singer?
Elf-is Presley, of course.
Normally I don’t ever attempt drawing someone recognizable, but this time I gave it a shot…
And with that, Bad Joke Monday’s Penultimate Episode comes to a close. Tune in next week for our grand finale!
But wait, it won’t be grand if you don’t leave a joke in the comments! Be sure to leave one below and check back next week to see if it gets illustrated.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
