Saturday Night Genealogy Fun exercise, but who needs to be constrained by something as arbitrary as the calendar? I finally had time today, so here it is!
Here is your assignment, if you choose to play along (cue the Mission: Impossible! music, please!):
(1) We're supposed to have fun doing this — show us your best genealogy humor: joke, cartoon, story, etc. The more the merrier!
(2) Share your genealogy funny in your own blog post or on Facebook, and leave a link to it in the comments.
I also have a collection of genealogy-themed comics that I've been collecting for several years. As with Linda Stufflebean, however, I don't want to intrude on anyone's copyright (especially since I teach a class on the subject!). So I too am including links (some of which took a while to track down), except for one of my favorites, the Bizarro cartoon, because he has a very nice policy for using his material.
Genealogist and genie sound pretty similar, right?

Who thought the Ellis Island myth would show up in a comic strip?

Closing out with a comic that isn't humorous but is a beautiful sentiment about adoption.

And I love the one Randy posted with Janet's sentiments about standing on her boobs!
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
