Here's a joke:

Two olives are on a table. One rolls off of the table onto the floor, the other one looks down and asks "Are you alright?". The one on the floor answers "Olive"!

That one seems to work better out loud. :)


I don't have a joke, but here's a random bit! I skipped a grade in school, so I was always a year ahead of where I should've been, hooray!


Oh...I'm off to check out your new goodies now!!!


Oh Leslie - I already have gushed over your new cards - but I LOVE the fly cards that you illustrated! Great contest - I do not have a joke either... but here is a random bit about me: I was originally named MaryAnn but once I got home to my adoptive parents they changed it to Hope!


An Englishman, a Scot and an Irishman go into a pub and each order a beer. At the same moment, each of them has a fly land in his beer. The Englishman exclaims, "How disgusting!", pushes his beer away and leaves. The Scot removes the fly, "Oh well", and drinks the beer. The Irishman grabs the fly between his index finger and thumb, squeezes it and shouts,"Spit out! Spit it out!"

Now that I've typed that out, it occurs to me that beyond the Australian coast this may not be seen as entirely PC. I have no intention of offending/excluding anyone, so feel free to insert whichever nationality you see fit :) :) :)

ps would it help to know that I am descended from each of those fine countries???


i only know corny kids jokes. from before i had kids...

what did one snowman say to the other?
i smell carrots...

nice. the shop looks fabulous! and hooray for summer!!


Leslie! Your cards are FAB!!!! How ever do you do it all?! Supermom!!!

ok: A pirate walks into a bar; barman asks him why he's got a steering wheel tucked into the front of his pants. He replies, "Yaaaargh, they're drivin' me nuts!"

{A Monkey joke} :)


I'm crap at telling jokes, so I'll give you a tidbit. 10 years ago I graduated high school with a class of 8 people. Yup, 8. We lived in a small farming community in West Texas. (not even a town on the map! If you've seen the movie Dancer TX this is very much like my life was!)


all the good jokes i know are way too long to write here, so i'll give you a tidbit. i absolutely, positively HATE green peppers. i can't even pick them out of things, because the taste is still there. however, i love jalepenos other similar peppers. i'm weird.


I'm terrible at jokes. I graduated high school at the age of 17! :)


Forgot to add that I LOVE the new subscription. I will have to put that on my wish list!


I'm still trying to figure out the 'olive' joke.


Hi Leslie! No joke here. Something funny though. Yesterday my son told me that I talk too much. He said, "it's like you have 2 mouths, Mommy."


Quoted from my 9 yr old daughter, Amber

knock, knock

knock, knock
who's there?
banana who??!!
who's there?!
orange who?

michal Wright

i'm completely out of jokes, so here's an interesting fact about me: my name sounds completely different in the two countries i am a citizen of (israel and the US). my first name,, Michal, has the 'hh' sound most english speakers can't pronounce. So i go by Mitchell here. And i had to change the spelling of my family name from the german Rat (A pronounced like A and not E) to Wright, for obvious reasons. split personality? maybe... ; )


Oooooo... pretty blog, preeeeeetttttteeee blaaaawwwwwwg!

Here's my dad's favorite joke..

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Little old lady.
Little old lady who?
I didn't know you could yodel!



Your cards are really cute! =)
A random tidbit about me -- I almost didn't graduate from high school because I had the hardest time passing the required swimming test. I had to tread water for 60 seconds to pass, but I kept "drowning" at 35 seconds. The teacher had to rescue me multiple times by sticking a long metal pole in the water. Fortunately I finally passed 3 days before graduation.


no jokes -- but did you know that strawberries have more vitamin C than oranges?


A few years ago, I coulda whipped up many a joke for you ( my daughters lived for jokes) but my mind is blank right now. So here's a random bit about me: I don't drive!


Hi Leslie
Just really wanted to say thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your cheese face comment. I'm hoping it hangs around for a bit longer, cheese faces are really cute. But as far as a joke goes, this is my five year olds favourite.
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Boo Who?
No need to cry, it's only a joke.
And that's about the standard of jokes around here at the moment. That one, and why did the cat cross the road? To go for a swim. Followed by loud raucous laughter. If you figure it out, let me know.


Got no jokes, but I can offer a random tidbit: I like mayonnaise on my corn-on-the-cob.

By the way, my new blog design is up, featuring your fabulous illustration!!!


Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Sweden who?
Sweden sour chicken please!

(I only know kid jokes!)


I have a joke!
What kind of cheese isn't yours?
Nacho cheese!
Get it?

I love your site, Leslie, your illustrations and all your stories about your kids. You are an inspiration!


Random bits about me:

- I have never had a cavity
- My hair caught on fire when I was eight
- I still watch cartoons

Yay all the new goodies look so cool :) I just ordered a set of fabby cards! Hmmmm I can't think of any jokes right now but I can share some bizarre facts about myself:

1.) I like to drink milk w/ my pizza
2.) I have a sick love for rubber duckies
3.) I've never broken a bone or had stitches


Hmm. Let's see. Okay,
"What kind of teeth cost a dollar?"


Great work btw!


Amazing! Your talent, your creations, you!

Random tidbit: I love to garden but would you believe that I've never touched a worm--too slimy, ick! Well, at least not knowingly or with my bare hands.


Knock Knock
Who's There?
Olive Who?
Olive you.

I love chocolate
I to sew late at night
My favorite flower is the tulip
Pink is my favorite color


What is smarter than a talking horse?

A spelling bee.

It's silly, I know.

well congrats on the busy life :D and how sweet of you to have a raffle!!!!

hmm, i am bad at jokes too so how about a tidbit?! i was watching an episode of x-files called jose chung's alien abduction... it was so FUNNY and it was 3am and i'm hysterically laughing... alone... but laughing... hahaha- yeah, that is cheesy...

ps. someone mentioned they like mayo on corn?! well i do too! here with all us latinos, we add parmesan cheese onthe top too! they have vendors who sell this on the streets on the southside of milwaukee...


Gorgeous notecards - and my addiction to stationery means that I have to enter your raffle even though I've only just found your blog!

Joke? The tomato family are out for a walk, Mummy Tomato is sick of nagging Baby Tomato to stay close by. After the 5oth nagging session, Daddy Tomato snaps, and, much to Mummy's horror, squashes Baby Tomato. He looks at Mummy and shrug's before announcing "Well - Ketchup!"!

A classic and one that still makes me laugh...although, not quite so heartily now that I'm a Mummy!


Okay, here's a silly joke that I saw on the kid's menu at Pasta Pomodoro yesterday:

Q: How do you repair a broken tomato?
A: Tomato paste.

What can I say, our young friends dining with us laughed. :-)


Leslie, I love your new notecards. I totally suck at jokes so here's a random fact. My mom loved the group Frankie Valley & The Four Seasons. When I was born she decided that I'd be named after one her 2 favorite songs by them "Sheri or Dawn-Go Away". Well you know which one she picked.


here's TWO jokes for you (but you gotta tell them together):

how do you catch a unique rabbit?

you neek up on him!!

how do you catch a tame rabbit?

tame way!



Here's my kids favorite joke:

knock knock
who's there?
pickle who?
pickle noo noo head

HAAAAAAAAAAA!!! the hilarity of 6 and 4 year old jokers....we do knock knock jokes for like an hour straight, and not a single one is funny:)

except to us:)


What do pirates eat on pizza?


(Well, you never said it had to be a good joke.)


A neutron walks into a bar and asks for a drink. He asks the bartender "how much?" and the bartender replies "for you, no charge".


I've held off entering this contest because I was already lucky enough to win another one of your raffles, but those cards! I can't resist!


Oh, darn, I'm terrible at jokes! This post reminded me of the only other time I have ever won a raffle, which I will make my random tidbit! In High School, I won a turkey during the raffle at our annual Thanksgiving Trot. It sure would be nice to add a set of super cool notecards to my list of winnings!


I'm new to your site but I found it very interesting. I'll be coming back. Then I saw this contest bit so I'm gonna give it a shot. Your cards are simply irresistible!

I'd write a joke but you might end up frowning instead of laughing so I'll save that up for later.

Random bit about me: I shaved my head three times because of curiosity, felt like it and I was mad at my parents. (All in particular order.) I was a teenager that time. :X
