I posted this week about the rather excellent Heather Scarecrow Festival, so it seems that a good topic for puns and one-liners this week might be scarecrow jokes. As normal, they come with no guarantee of funniness or originality… although appropriately enough, these are more corny than normal.
A scarecrow friend of mine tried out as a stand up comedian, but he was too corny.
Another scarecrow went for dinner with a cow friend, but it cost him an arm and a leg.
I saw a chap fighting with a scarecrow once. I thought, “he’s just clutching at straws”.
Got annoyed when I found out someone had used my raw materials for a new scarecrow to feed their horse. That was the last straw.
A local scarecrow is quite a good DJ, Turnip The Beet.
How does a scarecrow drink? With a straw….
Why do scarecrows find it hard to share secrets? Because the potatoes have eyes and the corn has ears.
Why did the scarecrow think the farmer was magic? Because he made his tractor turn into a field.
Why did the cabbage win the scarecrow race? Because it was a head.
Was out for dinner with a scarecrow the other night, but he didn’t eat much. He was already stuffed.
…and of course, the classically corny…
Why did the scarecrow win an award? Because he was outstanding in his field.
Last week’s jokes are here.
