Knock Knock

My kids are trying to understand jokes. I think I'm going to be checking out a book of toddler jokes at the library this week. They need some help.

Izzie: Mom! I'm going to tell you a JOKE.
Me: Okay, tell me!
Izzie: A Walking Flower! Hahahahahaha!!!
Me: That's your joke?
Izzie: Yes, silly, flowers DON'T walk! hahahahaha!!

You've got to admit... it' was pretty funny.

She needs the distinction between humor and joke. But I agree.. that is funny.

Oh my...I feel your pain.  My kids' (3 and 4) favorite joke is:

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Chicken who?
Chicken ON A BUS!!!!
(I tell people this and they look at me with furrowed brow, desperately trying to figure out the joke.  I have to explain to them, no, it does not make sense.  You're not missing something.)

The problem with so many knock-knock jokes is by time you're old enough to really understand the pun, you've out grown them.

A favorite one (that actually makes sense) is:

Knock knock.
Who's there?Interrupting cow.

Another one my son loves (possibly because we watch a lot of Lawrence Welk):

Knock Knock.
Who's there?
Anna who?
An'a one, an'a two...
