And the Winner Is…!

Filed under: Announcements,Blog Admin — folkcat at 3:46 pm on Monday, June 18, 2007

We had a huge flurry of entries!

Okay, maybe not. But we did have a few good entries from several of you, and both Gryphon and I had a good laugh every time another comment came in.

In the end, there were three jokes to choose from, which means no random drawing – only one prize will go out to my favorite. It wasn’t easy to pick – all your jokes were funny. But in the end, one did stand out as inducing the most spastic giggling.

Which means that the winner is – Sarah, with her knock-knock joke!

Knock, knock!

Who’s there?

Impatient Cow.


Moooooo !

It may not come across quite as well merely reading it. Do me a favor, make sure to tell it to someone, then you can get the true feeling of the silliness it brings. It was when I told it to Gryphon that it really came alive for me.

Sarah, I’m e-mailing you a few questions so I can pick out your prize – watch your inbox!

The other two entries were fun as well. You can read them in the comments here. Both Carol and Claudia made me laugh with their jokes.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, or even just commented. You helped to lighten our worries over the weekend.

Claudia gets an honorable mention for something outside of her contest entry – she sent an extra list of jokes that a friend had just e-mailed to her. They had Gryphon and I curling up in our chairs, laughing hysterically. So I feel like I have to share them with you, they’re just that good! Or that bad, depending on how you like your humor. 🙂

hahahaha! GREAT jokes! I couldn’t settle on one, there were so many funnies. I still shoulda posted one, though, to cheer you up! But that muffin one just really is so ME! I giggle inside when I think of it. Geez, I’m grinning like an idiot right now, lol!

Can’t wait to see what the winner gets! Also curious as to how the ratties do with the new vet and treatment(s).

Hey, in the new new edition of Knitty, there’s a pattern, Wisp that I want to do. But I need something that’s NOT got mohair in it as my hubby is allergic. Any ideas? I want something that’ll work well with the pattern, and will block well (so lots of natural fiber in it, for that last, I think!).

A pirate with a steering wheel in his pants walks into a bar. The bartender asks, “Why do you have a steering wheel in your pants?”

The pirate says, “It drives me nuts!”

That one is alot in how you say it and enphasize words in the punchline. You’ve probably heard it. But, just a belated joke for s’more laughs.
