Silly Cow! Is the joke book that started the now Silly Series with a joke that
I received while at work. They use something called a MOO number. One day I
saw a MOO number that included DOO. The whole beginning of the number was
MOODOO. Right there was the punch line to the question that would create a
book. That question was… What kind of Witch-craft do Cows practice? MOO
DOO was the answer!
After that joke the others just flowed to me. I was having fun with all these
Cow inspired Moo jokes, but I had no idea what to do with them. I thought maybe
I could make a children’s book out of these jokes. I had called my friend Kevin
Stockton and told him about this idea. I knew that he had done some drawings
and asked him if he would want to try to illustrate a few of the Cow jokes. He
agreed, but wasn’t sure if he would be good at the coloring part of the
As our phone call ended I gave that last part some thought and wondered how
we could work around it. I thought kids like to color, why not let them color the
illustrations? Yes! Silly Cow! Will be a joke and coloring book! I immediately
called Kevin back with this new idea. I excitedly told him about letting the kids
coloring the illustrations instead of him.
Then as I was telling Kevin about that I received another idea fro the book. I
told Kevin right away too. The book can also have Fun Facts about Cows! We
were both excited about this new Children’s book idea that could appeal to many
age groups with funny jokes, great illustrations to color, and was also
educational with facts about Cows.
On December 10, 2009 Silly Cow! was published. Inspired by the interest in
this book we thought of other ideas, which lead to the September 22, 2010
publication of Silly Halloween! These jokes were inspired by our favorite
holiday and spooky interest in monsters and free candy! We also added to this
joke and coloring book, aside from Halloween fun facts a word search and
Monster Match Up.
Silly Kitty! The third joke and coloring book was published on October 27, 2011.
I had found myself in the company of Cats around the time Silly Kitty! was
created and I suppose they inspired me with their meows, hisses, and scratching
at furniture lead to the creation of these Cat jokes. I am also a fan of the
Garfield comic strip, but I am very allergic to Cats and Dogs.
We have three Silly Joke books so far. Keep checking back here at jackbatcher.
