LITBM Blogfest - Some Quickies

Woo! It's HERE! And I think we can ALL use a good laugh after the Blogger meltdown recently. So since we had such an amazing turnout for the fest, I'm keeping this to a few short bursts.

Five quickies, if you will.

And I can't wait to get around and read all the hilarity. So here goes.

(And for the record, we could think of zero writer jokes. I can't wait to see if any of you found one.):

Q. What do yo get when you cross an elephant with a rinocerous?
A. HellifIknow.

*Pah dum-pum*


#2-A horse walks into a bar.
Bartender says, "Why the long face?"

#3-A hamburger walks into a bar.
Bartender says, "We don't serve food here."

#4-A skeleton walks into a bar.
He orders a beer and a mop.

BAH!!!

And finally, specially for my UK friends,

What do you get when you pour hot water down a rabbit hole?
Hot, cross bunnies.

drum-roll... crash!

(Gah! And two bonus blonde jokes. I forgot my blonde jokes. Because I'm blonde, of course.)

What's the definition of eternity?
Four blondes at a four-way stop.

Why did the blonde stare at the orange juice can?
Because it said concentrate.

*snorggle*

Now, off to read the rest of yours. And here are the links to all our hilariously humorous participants. Be sure to run around and overdose on some funnies!




Have a great week, reader-friends. Til Thursday~ <3

*giggle* I was so not thinking writing jokes... since I went with visuals, I even actually HAVE a couple... I love your silly jokes. You reminded me of my 'string walks into a bar' one... I'll have to tell you later... my favorite joke though, has to be done live (interrupting cow)

Chris Phillips said...

Tara said...

As a natural blonde, I have a total dumb blonde theory, but I'll keep it to myself. (Unless my book is ever published, then the world will know since my MC has the same theory...odd, isn't it ;-)

But, the blonde jokes always crack me up. Eternity, LOL!

Laurel Garver said...

Joyce Lansky said...

Stopped by to check out the other host. I put my name on the list (thinking it wouldn't be here since I registered at the other site)--OOPS. Sorry about that.

Cute jokes. The only writing joke I know is how we all get writer's butt from sitting in our chairs too long, but unfortunately it's no joke.

Thanks for hosting the blog hop!

Summer Ross said...

Oh my gosh- I feel just awful about that- in the two years I have been doing blogfests this is the first one I have missed! I'm terribly sorry sweetie- life took me for a loop the last couple of days and I had no time at all, But that is no excuse! Forgive me?

Michael Di Gesu said...

Sorry I missed on this one, Leigh. Still trying to settle in back home...

Love the blonde jokes. I gagged on the second one.

Sending a bear hug to keep you warm.... We're still in the love 50's, but we did see the sun today.

Carissa Elg said...

New follower here! {waves} Found you from the fabulous Anita and just had to make a dumb joke of my own.

When I was in junior high, the running joke between me and all my friends was : Three men walked into a bar. The fourth one ducked.

For whatever reason, in our 14 year old brains, it was the most hilarious thing ever. Thanks for pulling it out of my memory banks! HA!!

Liz Fichera said...

Oh, hilarious! And blonde jokes never get old. :-)

P.S. Nice to connect with you today, Leigh!

LTM said...

@E--LOVE!!! wait... :D *snort*

@Summer--No worries, honey! I was a day late visiting, and I threw the dang thing--work exploded! :D

@Anita--you bet, and same to you! This has been a HILARIOUS fest! Thanks to Lydia for thinking of it~ :D

@PK--I was a day late visiting, so you're off the hook! Shew! crazy times. But Yay! Blonde jokes~ :D

@Carissa--that's hilarious to me, too! Maybe I'm really 14--? Explains a lot. :D Hubs loves those "walked into a bar" jokes, so he'd dig it as well. Thanks for playing! :D

Jennie Bailey said...

Hellifiknow...snort! Is it bad that I want to teach that one to my five year old nephew?

Kittie Howard said...

Snorted thru 'em all! What a hoot. I'm gonna drop around for some laughs.

Theresa Milstein said...

Even though I'm not British, my favorite is hot cross bunnies.

What a fun blogfest. Too bad I'm not funny. At least, not on purpose.

Kari Marie said...

OMG Leigh - I'm rolling in my chair (yes, that hurts). Excellent blog fest M'lady. :)

Sylvia Ney said...

WOW - I like the four blondes at the crossway. Too cute!

LTM said...

@TL--Yay! Glad you enjoyed the fest~

@Sylvia--Yeah, I often think of that joke when I arrive at a 4-way stop... then I get all nervous. "Who was here first???"

It's sadly accurate. :D LOL!!!

Jennee said...

I have no memory for jokes...so I never tell them. I hope I can remember a few of yours because they made me chuckle!
