Strings 2

BWhahahahahahahahahahaha... eh. Anyone remember this old joke?

This is my second picture for this week's Illustration Friday theme Strings. "Strings 2" was drawn on a piece of scrap paper using a Faber-Castle 3-H pencil, inked in with a Faber-Castle fine tip artist pen and the text was added using Photoshop Elements.

This old joke popped into my head while I was watching football. So, I decided to do a quick sketch.

Do you remember any old jokes? Do you want to leave me some love?


  • OMG! That joke STILL stays with me! Especially when I hear someone say, "I'm a frayed-knot!" LOLOLOL! Great job!

  • Ha! Yes, I do remember that one!
    Right up there with the three-legged dog that stumped into town..."Looking for the man who shot my paw!"
    Great take on the theme!

  • I've actually never heard this one before. I therefore think it's pretty funny, and you illustrated it perfectly. Love.

  • I hadn't heard it either, so I laughed too :) My dad used to always tell me the one "What's black and white and red all over" and the answer was either a newspaper, or a zebra with a sunburn, whichever answer I didn't say :)

  • Guess you can't keep an old joke buried away forever. I actually think the joke works better as a cartoon, so well done.

  • Funnny- It's a new one fer me- frayed I never heard this one- never been to an anti-string bar I guess.

  • I am so so so bad at remembering jokes, the only one i remember is something about a panda that eats shoots and leaves, but i am pretty sure that is a grammer joke so it figures. sending saved up love. by the way your strings painting is really fantastic. you really should do a series of those... i mean acrylic paintings of your avatar

  • kris-tea: Thanks.

    helen (it's a visual...): Hmm... you've kicked string out of a bar or you were kicked out of a bar for being string?

    katie: You're welcome and thanks. :-)

    tracy: Thanks and thanks.

    andydoodler: Ha! :-)

    princess pepper cloud: Thanks for the saved up love and thanks for the kind words about my other painting. Someday I will put a series of those together... someday...
