This week’s Saturday Show & Tell is short and sweet thanks to a technical glitch. Turns out that items submitted through the blog carnival site got tossed to the ether and are now cavorting with Amelia Earhart, Jimmy Hoffa and all the socks that go MIA each year from my washer.
I usually get half a dozen really spammy submissions in addition to the sincere ones, but this week – nothing – which I found odd. Fortunately, Mad Kane sent an email to me directly asking if her submission had made it through. It hadn’t.
So, our first submission this week comes from Mad Kane, herself. It’s called Limerick Ode To a Vigorous Old Lady. Having won the Robert Benchley Society Award For Humor, Mad Kane continues to be widely published, both in print and online. According to her bio:
I live in New York City with my humor-inspiring husband Mark, who puts up with my writing song parodies during dinner, even though the poor guy thought he was marrying a nice Jewish lawyer.
Continuing in a lighthearted vein, my contribution this week is a post called, Armageddon Knock Knock Joke, in which I use humor to deflect a long-winded fellow who was trying to convert me to his religion on a sunny day when all I wanted to do was work in my garden.
Here’s a brief excerpt to whet your whistle:
As we sat in the shade sipping iced-tea, the man told me that the world was about to end, but if I worked it right, I could be one of the head honchos in the afterlife. The guy made it sound like I would be a post-apocalyptic manager of lost souls.

That wraps up this week’s edition of the Saturday Show & Tell blog carnival. See you next time! Speaking of…
