Knock Knock

I told the boys the only two Knock Knock jokes I know one rainy day. Frick mastered them right away and became bored with them just as quickly. Frack took a liking to these jokes and then eventually put his own spin to them.  Joke #1 is told through peels of laughter:

Frack: Knock, knock!

Me: Who’s there?

Frack: Boo!

Me: Boo who?

Frack: Why you crying? It’s a joke.


His best joke by far.  Does anyone else see the Improv in his future?!  Then he tries the next one, again, with his own spin:


Frack: Knock, knock!

Me: Who’s there?

Frack: Orangie.

Me: Orangie who?

Frack: Orangie glad I joke?


Then he starts making up jokes. He has been using ‘potty words’ lately, much to my dismay. Imagine my surprise when he incorporates it into his joke:

Frack: Knock, knock!

Me: Who’s there?

Frack: Potty words.

Me: Potty words who?

Frack: Potty words you stink.


This is going straight down the toilet, and fast. (pardon the pun–I could not resist.)


I need some new Knock Knock jokes to teach this boy!

    Holy crap, that potty words one is hysterical. That’s totally something my brother would have told me when he was Frack’s age.

    Ok, try this:
    –Knock Knock
    –Who’s there?
    –Ivish who?
    –I vish you a merry Christmas

    followed by:
    –Who’s there?
    –Anna who?
    –Anna Happy New Year

    –Who’s there?
    –Lettuce who?
    –Lettuce in, it’s cold outside!

    and when he gets older:
    –Knock Knock
    –Who’s there?
    –Interrupting Cows
    (that one’s my favorite.)

    I should ask my little brother…he’s got a whole bunch of knock knock jokes he trades back and forth with one of my parents’ friends.

    Here’s one:

    Knock knock
    Who’s there?
    An impatient cow
    An impati….
    Moooooo (the joke here is that you start saying Mooo before they finish the standard reply “An impatient cow who?”)

    Big fans of the knock knocks. My kids can go on and on…

    Knock Knock
    Who’s there?
    Lettuce Who?
    Let us in, we’re freezing!

    Just wait for the “why’d the chicken cross the road” jokes. Those don’t stop either.

    Knock, Knock.
    Who’s there?
    Moo who?
    Are you a cow or an owl?

    We’re in the same phase!

    From one of Kyle’s Tag Reader books:
    Knock Knock
    Who’s There?
    Canoe who?
    Canoe get a plug and stop this leak? (or Canoe paddle any faster?)

    Wow – your kiddos are genius. Mine still do not get the concept of the knock-knock joke.

    It makes for a very long day.

    Too funny!
    I only know the BooHoo one and the banana/orange one — do you know that one? You just keep repeating banana and then at the end you say “Orange” and then “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana.”

    I love kid humor. My son is totally into potty words and he was told at school he can only use them in the bathroom so he goes in to the bathroom and says “butt, butt, poop, poop, pee,pee” and then comes out and keeps on doing what he was doing. So goofy these kids!

    My HUSBAND loves knock knock jokes. Unfortunately, he also only knows a few and says them over and over.

    Knock Knock
    Who’s There?
    Boo Who?
    HAHA I made you cry!

    Knock Knock
    Who’s There
    Banana Who?
    Banana Who?
    Banana Who?
    Orange Who?
    Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?

    That one is really annoying though. You probably shouldn’t teach him that one.

    Well at least their jokes are funny. My 5 year old makes up jokes like this…”why did the house move? Because a really giant guy picked it up.” and “why did the ant have pancakes for breakfast? Because they were his favorite and he made them on a campfire!” It’s like, what???

    Think potty humor is bad? Well, this is my lovely son’s only knock knock joke and I can never stop him from telling it: Knock knock, who’s there? yo. yo who? yo mama.

    I kid you not. He is Andy’s child. Or maybe Sharon’s (Bird’s Nest)–hee hee hee!
