“Did you hear about the farmer who made gloves out of herbs? He had way too much thyme on his hands”

"Thyme” (an aromatic perennial evergreen herb) has had many “time” puns. “After a day of removing ground cover in the garden without gloves, I am left with too much thyme on my hands” was posted on Twitter on June 25, 2011. “Someone must have already done a ‘gloves made from herbs, too much thyme on my hands’ type joke, yes?” was posted on Twitter on January 27, 2014.

Usually, the joke involves gloves made out of herbs (thyme). “Spent the afternoon trying to make a pair of gloves out of herbs. I’ve got a lot of thyme on my hands” was posted on Twitter on February 15, 2013. “Did you hear about the farmer who made gloves out of his herbs? He had way too much thyme on his hands” was posted on Twitter on June 5, 2017.


Wikipedia: Thyme
Thyme (/taɪm/) is an aromatic perennial evergreen herb with culinary, medicinal, and ornamental uses. The most common variety is Thymus vulgaris. Thyme is of the genus Thymus of the mint family (Lamiaceae), and a relative of the oregano genus Origanum.

Yesterday, my neighbour made a pair of gloves using nothing but herbs from her garden. Clearly, she has too much thyme on her hands.

Just made myself a pair of gloves by stitching a large quantity of herbs together. I have a lot of thyme on my hands.

My friend was so bored he made gloves out of herbs.
He had far too much thyme on his hands.
