GIVE-AWAY!!! What We’re Into: Jokes

Last month’s randomly chosen winner was Ginger Collier,
who shared with us her favorite teacher. 
The title of this give-away should really be: What They’re Forced to Come Up With. Our poor contributors were not brimming over with humor this month. Thankfully the more serious writers have humorous family members who shared a joke with them. Hopefully you’ll have a good laugh.
But don’t leave us hangin’! Share with us your (or your family’s) favorite joke. The winner (who will be randomly chosen and announced on September 30th) will receive a free copy of Lisa Whittle’s book “Whole”. Lisa Whittle is our next women’s retreat guest speaker. Yes! We’re talking the women’s retreat! Get it on the calendar now… February 6th through the 8th. To learn more about Lisa Whittle visit her website at

Janna: How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh? Ten tickles! Get it? Tentacles? 

Joy: Keaton’s favorite joke is: Knock knock. Who’s there? You. You who. Answer is here.

Lisa AthanLisa: I honestly don’t have a favorite joke, but here is Kendra’s (my 19 year old): Why did the scarecrow receive an award???  Because he was outstanding in his field!  Come on! You know it’s cute.

Michelle MahlstadtMichelle: What did the book say to the page? Don’t turn away from me! *Michelle needed no one to help her find a joke. The woman was bursting with funniness! Good job, Michelle!

Paula Gooch Paula: Though I love jokes, I am typically the one laughing, not necessarily giving them.  I do specialize in ridiculous jokes that don’t make any sense that I only share with family or close friends. Usually I’m the only one laughing, at least about the joke.  Since I don’t have anything up my sleeve and, to refrain from any embarrassment, I will not share anything funny, despite the fact that I’d love to…and if you’re not laughing by now, I have completely failed at my attempt to be hilarious – oh well, perhaps next time. 🙂

Suzie LindSuzie: What do you call a nosy pepper? Jalapeño business!

Victory LudwigVictory: Ok – so I don’t really have a favorite joke, probably because I am terrible at telling them!  I had to ask my dad for help (he’s the joke-teller in our family), and in his honor (he’s Jewish), I chose to share this one: How many Jewish American Princesses does it take to change a light bulb? Just one. She holds the light bulb and the whole world revolves around her. (Optional: swap out “Jewish American Princesses” for middle-schoolers!)


Now it’s your turn. What’s your favorite joke?

  1. One afternoon, I was in the backyard hanging the laundry when an old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard.
    I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. But when I walked into the house, he followed me, sauntered down the hall and fell asleep in a corner. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back. He resumed his position in the hallway and slept for an hour.

    This continued for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: “Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.”
    The next day he arrived with a response pinned to his collar: “We have ten children – he’s trying to catch up on his sleep.”.

    1. Congratulations to Linda Felis for winning this month’s GIVE-AWAY! Thank you for your joke about the sleepy dog and we hope you enjoy your new book.
