Knock Knock


Ella started saying some not-very-nice-words, and telling us that she is just telling "silly jokes." I'm assuming that this experience is not a unique to us, and I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, particularly now that she has some school age friends. So, in an attempt to distract her from saying the "garbage" words, we tried to teach her some jokes that she can tell when she is in the mood to be funny. We decided to start with some good, old fashioned knock knock jokes. Unfortunately, we only came up with two good ones. Now we get hear these jokes non-stop (complete with hysterical 3-year-old, laughing-even-though-I-don't-get-the-joke, giggling at the end of each joke).

Knock, Knock.
Who's There?
Boo.
Boo Who?
Don't cry, it's just a joke.

Knock, Knock.
Who's There?
A little old lady.
A little old lady who?
I didn't know you knew how to yodel?

Occasionally we get this variation.

Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
A little old lady.
A little old lady who?
I didn't know you knew a noodle?

If you know any good knock knock jokes we'd be grateful if you shared. :)

Although not a knock-knock joke, Troy told me this cheesy one last night:

How do you keep a fish from smelling?

Plug its nose. (:

Okay here is a great knock knock joke to be used on a gulible unsuspecting person.

You say, "I've got a great knock knock joke! Wanna hear it?" (Said in an enthusiastic voice) Of course the person will say yes! Then you say, "Okay here's how it works, YOU Start it."
Then they say, "Knock Knock" and you say, "Who's there" and wait to see what they will say/do. :D

A comment on your side bar. I too need to keep one foot out at night. Not so fun as we slept on the trampoline the other night and my foot became open to all the mosquitoes. Got to love a few bites here and there.

Lettuce.
Lettuce who?
Lettuce in it's cold outside!
Maybe you should change cold to hot for right now though.
