The Never Ending Knock Knock Joke



You’ve heard it a million times before, “Knock, Knock!” “Who’s There?” and so on and so forth.

Rarely, if ever, are they funny enough to warrant even a phony giggle. Even the dirty adult ones aren’t overly funny.

That all changes when the joke comes out of the mouth of a small child, doesn’t it? We roar with laughter as the punchline rolls out, as if it’s the funniest thing we’ve ever heard in our lives.

The funny thing about it, for me at least, is that the laughter is completely genuine. Something about the fact that your child understands the humour in it, is comforting and hilarious at the same time.

Almost as if you have done your job as a parent by teaching your kid the lighter side of life and that being funny is okay.

That brings me to today’s post. My son, at age 4, has learned his very first Knock, Knock joke. In true child form, he immediately forgot it, which brought on this video of him reciting what may be the longest Knock, Knock joke of all time.


PS – He was trying to do the one that ends with “Orange you glad I didn’t say Banana”. I tell you this because there is no way you would have guessed it from this….

Way to go buddy! Better than Daddy could do!

    hehe, kids are too cute! I am looking forward to when DS is old enough to tell his own jokes. He is just starting to grasp with others make a joke now.
    And knock knocks are always a classic

    hehe. So cute. 🙂

    I will ALWAYS remember when my baby sister told her first knock-knock joke. I think she was 3-4 years old. It was “Knock, Knock” “Who’s there?” “Duck” “Duck who?” “Duck went for a walk.”

    It sent the whole family into hysteria, and became a family joke for ever!

    My boys try knock knock jokes but usually mess it up by saying “Knock, Knock, who’s there?” and then waiting for me to do the next step haha!

    Jokes are always priceless coming from a child. My son has too been learning jokes and the ones he has been giving are hysterical and he ends up laughing so hard half the time he can’t get them out! Love your sons little laugh. It is priceless!

      Hahaha, he has no idea where he was going with it. If we hadn’t stopped him, it may have been a 30 minute long joke, lol.

    Ours is too young to complete the joke, but he says ‘knock knock’. We’ll wait for the conga line of jokes in a year or two when his verbal skills form.
