Kids humour - The jokes of a seven year old

by DannyUK

Starting with the question “If we covered [12 year old sister] in butter and left her out in the sun, would she die?”, to which I had no answer, my seven year old son was in a funny mood this morning.

He saw that I was WhatsApping a group of friends that he knows and he asked if I could tell them a knock knock joke. Looking back, I should have perhaps dug a little deeper rather than launch straight into agreeing and tapping out the joke, which went:

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

I interjected at this point and asked if the joke was going anywhere. Yes, apparently it was.

“Banana.”

“Banana who?”

“Banana do do” which was swiftly followed by a clarification from my son. “That’s the end of the joke.”

I told him that I didn’t think the joke was very funny and tried out my favourite knock knock joke on him:

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Banana”

“Banana who?”

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Banana”

“Banana who?”

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Banana”

“Banana who?”

“Knock knock”

“Who’s there?”

“Orange”

“Orange who?”

“Orange you glad I didn’t say banana!”

Needless to say that he thought the build up was funnier than the punchline and countered with:

“Why did the doctor cross the road?”

“I don’t know, why?”

“Because there was a smoothie there and he wanted to pick it up.”

He then tottered off to do whatever it is that seven-year-olds do when they’ve left their dad confused over a joke.
