J is for Jokes (the writerly kind, anyway)

Because we all need a few laughs every now and then...


How many science fiction writers does it take to change a light bulb? Two, but it's actually the same person doing it. He went back in time and met himself in the doorway and then the first one sat on the other one's shoulder so that they were able to reach it. Then a major time paradox occurred and the entire room, light bulb, changer and all was blown out of existence. (link)

This one has been circulating around Facebook. I don't know the original source, unfortunately.

Also this:


Lastly, I'm so gonna do this when I go into labor:

Did you hear the one about the pregnant woman who went into labor and began to yell, "Couldn't! Wouldn't! Shouldn't! Didn't! Can't!"? She was having contractions.

:D Have a good day, everyone!

Ha! I love the Oxford Coma one. I know it makes me old school that I use them, but I can't seem to get images like you posted out of my head. :)

Cheryl said...

Ashley Nixon said...

Haha! I love writer jokes because I'm a writer! I invented one earlier this year:

You know, we as writers must listen to the voices in our heads. What do you call an insane asylum?
A writers conference!

Ha! Okay, cheesy, but oh so true! ;)

Happy J day!

Loved the egg joke! I admit it, I love the Oxford comma, think it makes for a smoother read, except in journalism stuff.

Sarah Pearson said...

That last one is just awesome :-)

All the jokes made me laugh, although my favorite Oxford comma pic of late is the one with JFK and Stalin. Google Oxford Comma JFK Stalin cartoon and see what comes up. It's awesome!

Swinging through A to Z. Good luck with the rest of the challenge!
