The Vermi-Humor Challenge

Those who have followed the blog for any length of time will know that I enjoy goofing around…a LOT. Perhaps my sense of humor is a little “out there” or excessive for some people’s tastes, but I’m hopeful that (for those who stick around – lol) my relentless shenanigans at least serve as a reminder that we should always look on the light/bright side of life.
😆

As such, I thought it might be fun to hold a “vermi-humor” contest as part of our Vermivember festivities. The aim? To see who can come up with the funniest vermicomposting/worm jokes, cartoon ideas, funny songs etc etc!

The winner will receive a brand new Worm Factory 360, courtesy of our friends at Nature’s Footprint (or other prize(s) if outside of U.S.)!

Here Are Some Ideas:

1) Come up with a variation of the cartoon I’ve included above, using some other well-known person or character. No need to draw anything – just submit the idea.
2) Create your own “knock knock” or “why did the worm cross the road” jokes.
3) Write your own funny song or poem relating to worms and/or vermicomposting

OR – anything else you care to come up that you think will make fellow vermicomposters laugh!

All I ask is that you please:

1) Keep it family friendly
2) Come up with something original for the contest (but please DO share any good worm/vermicomposting jokes you’ve already heard as well)

To be elligible for prizes you must be signed up for the Vermivember email list. To submit your entry you can post your funny in the comments section below or email it to me.

The deadline for this contest is Friday Nov. 16th Tuesday Nov. 20 at midnight EST

Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

    Oh man…Bentley, you’ve really dropped the gauntlet this time…I’d be surprised if most of us “worm heads” out there are not also masters of shenanigans…This could get really interesting.
    C’mon fellow wormers, we can’t let Bentley down. Dig deep & let those creative juices flow…
    There once was a worm from Nantucket, who lived his whole life in a bucket.
    If he’d only had hands and other demands, his shirt tail he surely would tuck it…

    Lyrics using “Hee Haw-Pfft You were Gone”

    Worm …Oh Worm…where are you tonight?
    Why did you leave my box all alone???
    I searched the house over for cardboard and egg shells,… but

    You heard of Bentley’s and, PFFFT, you were gone!!!

    Here’s a song to the tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”

    Be a Worm

    If I could be some other creature
    A worm is what I’d like to be
    I’d always admired its feature
    To wiggle where no none can see

    chorus
    Wiggle, squiggle, deep down underground where it’s moist and cool
    Wiggle, squiggle, tunneling through with no tool!

    At times worms come up to the surface
    To wiggle along the dry ground
    Only to find they will dry out
    Then head back where moisture is found

    chorus
    Wiggle, squiggle, deep down underground where it’s moist and cool
    Wiggle, squiggle, tunneling through with no tool!

    Some don’t understand the worms’ mission
    To munch on dead things as they toil
    They make room for roots as they tunnel
    And poop out a nutrient-rich soil

    chorus
    Wiggle, squiggle, deep down underground where it’s moist and cool
    Wiggle, squiggle, tunneling through with no tool!

    Yep…controlled worm craziness 🙂

    To the tune of “Jingle Bell Rock”

    Wiggle Worms, Jiggle Worms, Wiggle Worms ROCK
    Wiggle Worms Crawl and Wiggle Worms Sprawl
    Composting their bedding provides bushels of fun
    Now the Wiggle crop has begun…

    Wiggle Worms, Jiggle Worms, Wiggle Worms ROCK
    Wiggle Worms graze in timely amaze
    No light or salt in my Wiggle Worm Bin
    the coffee grounds are in.

    Two friends go to lunch. At the end of the meal one friend hasn’t eaten all her food. The other friend (worm head) says “You’re not throwing that away are you? I’ll take it…I’ve got worms.

    (People always looked at me funny when I said it that way so now I say I compost with worms LOL)

    A cop walks into a bar. He spots a fella sipping on Tequila. As he walks over to sit down next to him, he notices the Tequila worm crawl out of the guy’s glass and shoot him! The cop immediately cuffs the worm and take him to jail. In jail, the worm gets asked what he’s in for and he says: “vermicular homicide.”

    Why did the worm cross the road? Because the underpasses were flooded!

    If you’ve ever rushed across the room to stop a guest from throwing food scraps in the garbage can…
    You might be a vermicomposter.
    If you’ve ever “stolen” horse manure from a stable…
    You might be a vermicomposter.
    If you’ve ever taken up half your freezer with food garbage…
    You might be a vermicomposter.
    If you’ve ever used your coffee grinder to grind egg shells…
    You might be a vermicomposter.
    If you’ve ever referred to a room in your house as the “worm closet” …
    You might be a vermicomposter.
    If you’ve ever raided someone’s recycling bin at the curb for newspapers and egg cartons…
    You might be a vermicomposter.
    If you’ve ever planned your Saturday around worm feeding time…
    You might be a vermicomposter.

    It’s that time of year when Holiday decorations go up and fruitcakes start making the rounds. That can mean trouble for worms.
