Weekend Open Thread: Pity the Fool Edition

Hey Sports Fans, welcome to another exciting edition of the KNIFE Magazine Weekend Open Thread.

It should be obvious by now what this week’s theme is.

That’s right boys and girls, it’s April Fools day, which may be even more contrived than Sweetest Day.

Ouch. That hits below the belt.

Wise strategy.

That is pretty savage, but I think this one wins…


I know that would make a better segue to our weekly drawing, but that would skip the weekly look at the Events Calendar, where we have a slew of shows and events…

(as always, the first year’s date displays on the embed, so ignore the old dates)

Batson Bladesmithing Symposium & Knife Show

32nd Annual The Greater Shenandoah Valley Knife Collector Show

Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show

Next weekend is off for Easter, but the 15th brings a few more…

ABS Piney Woods Hammer In

Lehigh Valley Knife Show

Oregon Knife Show

If one is in your neck of the woods, send us some pictures.

I don’t know. I wouldn’t underestimate cows. Or guinea pigs…

Anyone ever see the movie Fierce Creatures?

Much easier than naming fruits.

And easier than buttoning a sleeve.


Because this would be weird.

This seems a bit extreme…

Sage advice…

Women are confusing…

Just be sure to be home on time…

You don’t want to be on the receiving end of that look.

You do want to win knives though. In this case, Steve T. is the winner of his choice of sage or black Browning Buckmark Slim (Small)…


Usual rules apply – 5 comments or replies on this post are your entries, and if you are new to the blog, your comments will be held in moderation until I can approve the first ones. After that you are good to go. Next week’s winner gets the one that Steve doesn’t pick this week.

By the way, I sent the last 3 drawing knives out on Thursday. Sorry for the delay.

One of the all time greatest memes ever.

Would that be “bear chested”?

Poor zebra.

Change my mind.

Looks like a good time.

Until you come home to use the bathroom that is.

Solid life hack.


I hope she doesn’t reproduce.

Every time.

It has always worked for me.


Cracks me up every time I see that.


The Lunchmeat That Shall Not Be Named.

Don’t fall for its seductive moves.

That is another throwback meme.

Yamaha has you covered.

Submit your best spelling of poing! in the comments.

You had to be there.


Livin’ the good life.

Be like Jerry.

Not really a meme, but a good conversation starter. I don’t think I have survived a particular injury or illness that would have killed me, unless it was from an infection I never got due to modern antibiotics. However, I would be really crippled up having needed an L5/S1 discectomy in my back, and a meniscus scope of my knee.

That’s all for this evening. Have a good weekend everyone.

I’m gonna pour myself a drink.
