Knock Knock jokes

Knock Knock.
Who's there?
Spaghetti.
Spaghetti who?
Spaghetti on my plate! HAHAHA!

This was the first original knock knock joke that Billy ever told us. He was about 4 0r 5 and we were obviously eating dinner at the time. It would take a few more years for him to understand the true concept of a knock knock joke.

Kyra told a knock knock joke at dinner a few months ago and, of course, Tasha wanted in on the action. She would tell the same one right back. Then Bill had to go and tell the obnoxious "banana-banana-orange" one and we had to listen to that one for weeks, only banana kept knocking for about a dozen times. THAT'S fun to play, NOT! Again, at dinner the jokes started so I recounted the above story of Billy's funny attempt at a knock knock joke. Kyra rolled her eyes and thought he was goofy. She can tell a joke she's heard, but can't make one up herself really. Tasha, on the otherhand, picked up on the concept (albeit, not funny concept) and proceeded to tell us knock knock jokes related to every item that was on her plate. Oh brother, we've created a monster! The funniest thing is the "HAHAHA" at the end of the joke. This very fake, weak laugh is said by the joke teller, not the people listening. That's what makes it so funny. You might have to hear the non-laugh yourself to appreciate the humor.

So now, as we are driving to school in the morning, EVERY morning, Tasha wants to play the knock knock game. It is making me and Kyra crazy. Mostly because we don't have any good jokes to tell and keep repeating the same ones. I tried to make one up and the best I could come up with was "Woo"..."Woo who?"..."WooHoo, we're almost to school and can stop playing the knock knock game!". Kyra thought that was funny, but then I still had to drive home with Tasha.

Can you appreciate the pain that I am in each morning? Now is your chance to help me. I'll google knock knock jokes later, but for right now I want your input. And don't even try the "boo who" joke, that's the one I lead off with each morning. "Boo Hoo, you don't have to cry, it's just a joke". Tasha laughs every time.

Sorry H. I don't know any knock knock jokes and Davey either. BUT, on an unrelated topic I've been meaning to tell you that I have a couple movies I want you to watch and review for me. I haven't figured out how to rent movies here yet, but I heard about these two movies I'm dying to see. That rarely happens. So this is big. They are documentaries, one is called, "Born Rich", and the next one is called "The one percent". They were made by this super rich kid who comes from a billionaire family and the first is about the children of the insanely rich and the second is supposed to be about the growing wealth gap of the wealthy and the poor. They sound fascinating. Anyway, I'm lovin' your posts, even if I'm not as good of a commenter as you.

And BTW Davey's internship is working with people with schizophrenia, so if you need ideas with your homeless lady, give him a call!
