Monday morning writing joke: “Writer in Saskatchewan”

Once a science fiction writer moved to Saskatchewan. /

He heard that’s where all the aliens had gone. /

They’d landed there /

For the Canadian healthcare /

And belief that they could belong.

Monday morning writing joke: “It ain’t write, I tell you”

Two writers went to the same doctor’s office on the same day. She told each one he didn’t have long to live.

“It’s awful,” said the first writer. “I’m right in the middle of a novel and she’s only given me six months to live. I’ll never get it finished. What about you?”

“It’s awful for me, too,” said the second writer. “She gave me three years to live.”

“Three years!” the first writer said. “Three years! What’s so awful about that?”

“I write short stories,” the second writer said. “And I’m fresh out of ideas.”

Monday morning writing joke: “Writer from Dubuque”

There once was a writer from Dubuque.

He thought his success was a fluke.

Still, the notoriety, it’s said

Inflated his head

And his wife caught him with a girl half as cute.

Monday morning writing joke: “Writer at night”

There once was a writer at night

Who wrote all the way to daylight.

His stories were grand

About a sun-drenched land

But his descriptions were never quite right.

Monday morning writing joke: “Love at first pants”

There once was a writer of Romance /

Who had a stance on love at first glance. /

It was hard for him to believe /

Or even try to conceive /

That it could be done while still wearing your pants.

Monday morning writing joke: “Writer in the Kremlin”

There once was a writer in the Kremlin

Whose words were always dissembling.

No matter what he’d say

The writer would explain it away –

Even when Trump was Putin dwelling.
