Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Or how about some Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn (color 268) and a Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2010? All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite joke, or a link to your favorite funny blog or website.

Here are the rules: You must leave your joke or link here on THIS blog post no later than midnight, August 31, 2010 (Mountain Time). If the link or joke is left on another post, I will try to copy it here, but I'm not promising I'll remember. If you are a follower of my blog, and the random number generator draws your number, you get the yarn, the magazine, and a secret surprise. If you're not a follower you'll get the yarn, and I'll keep drawing numbers until a follower is chosen. That person will receive the Vogue and the secret surprise.

Why am I asking for jokes or funny links? Because virtual cookies just aren't that great, except for this one. Good luck everybody!


  1. Ok, I'm not really good at jokes but here is the most heard knitting joke ever:
    A policeman spots a woman driving and knitting at the same time. Driving up beside her, he shouts out the window... "Pull over!"

    "No," she shouts back. "It's a cardigan!"

  2. I've not heard Andrea's joke. That's hilarious.

    I thought this was hilarious as well!:

    What a fun giveaway! I am thinking that when I get 1/2 through The Joy of Sox, that I will give a book away. Maybe I will have built enough readers by then to do so. I sure have really enjoyed meeting people through blogging. I really had no idea that that would happen!

  3. winner winner chicken dinner! My new favorite combination of words- also going on the sidebar of my blog (with your permission)

    I don't need to win- but this is one of my favorite sites-

  4. Ok, here's one and please forgive me for it being a "blonde" joke. I can post it because my natural color was blonde (now it's white, ok, it's grey but I want it to be white)

    One winter morning a husband and wife in northern Colorado were listening to
    the radio during breakfast. They heard the announcer say, "We are going to
    have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered
    side of the street, so the snowplows can get through."

    So the good wife went out and moved her car.

    A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said,
    "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the
    odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through."
    The good wife went out and moved her car again.

    The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says,
    "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park..." Then the
    electric power went out.

    The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said,
    "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on
    so the snowplows can get through?" With the love and understanding in his
    voice that all men who are married to Blondes exhibit, the husband replied,

    "Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time?

  5. Do YouTube videos count? Because I crack up at
    The Internet is Made of Cats!!

    And also, the Literal Video Version of Total Eclipse of the Heart:

  6. What does a cat get when he eats a ball of wool?


  7. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying this! I hope you're all checking out the links. This stuff is hysterical! Thanks everybody.

  8. I made this up and inflicted it upon everyone I know. SO far I'm the only one who likes it, but I still have faith in it, so here goes:

    YOU: What do you get if you cross a rooster and an owl?

    YOUR VICTIM: I don't know, what do you get if you cross a rooster and an owl?

    YOU: Knock Knock

    YOUR VICTIM: What happened to the rooster and the owl?

    YOU: Knock Knock

    YOUR VICTIM: OK, fine. Who's there?

    YOU: Cockadoodle

    YOUR VICTIM: Cockadoodle Who?


  9. I have just started reading Franklin Habit's blog and I can't pick a favorite funny entry from there, but recent ones include

    which is worth reading just for the knitter's Ouija board. ("Yes but not with that yarn" still cracks me up.)

    Also, there's a "Literal Harry Potter" video where someone has overdubbed the new movie trailer with descriptions of what they're doing in each scene --

  10. Yes, it took me a little bit but here is the link to one of my favorite Monty Python sketches:

  11. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

    What a fun list of funny things. I keep an Engrish site on my blog list, and it tends to make me snort aloud at inappropriate times. Here's one of my favourites.

    I have since then started yelling "No pants! No life!" whenever the opportunity presents itself. This has made my world a better place to be, I promise you.

    Happy knitting!

  12. I don't really have a favourite funny website, but I often end up laughing at

  13. My favorite funny blog is

    My 4 year old would love to share this joke with you...

    Why was Tigger looking in the potty?
    He was searching for Pooh....

    ;) Sorry about that...

  14. I was having trouble remembering a joke to put here so I could enter for your giveaway, then I saw this post from Franklin, The Panopticon. I laughed till I cried and still laugh everytime I think of this:
