'Til My Sides Hurt: The Knock, Knock Joke

Hazel has discovered knock, knock jokes. Not actual jokes that have a point. Just the idea of them. I think she's learned from Abiah who is really almost as clueless as Hazel when it comes to executing the jokes.

Hazel was sitting "telling" me her jokes that all followed along the lines of this one:

Hazel: Knock, knock!

Me: Who's there?

H: Your nose.

M: Your nose who?

H: It's me! Your nose!

Then she would bust up laughing at herself.

Abiah's jokes usually have some hidden meaning or deep explanation that only he's aware of. Like this one:

Abiah: Knock, knock!

Me: Who's there?

A: Butterfly.

M: Butterfly who?

A: Butter.

M: I guess I don't have a very good sense of humor because I don't understand that one.

A: Well, it's because there's this joke about why did the boy throw the butter out the window? Because he wanted to see it fly...

M: Oh...I see.

After he tells this joke Hazel tells one similar to the one above. This time the punch line was:

"It's me! Your door!"

Abiah rolled his eyes and replied, "Hazel that's not even funny. Some people don't have a sense of humor." And then he quickly added, "Mom, what's a sense of humor?"

While I laughed to myself, Amelia walked up and tried her hand at a knock, knock joke:

Amelia: Knot, knot!

Me: Who's there?

Amelia: You's boobies!

That time I laughed!

Umm, so I thought you'd wanna know that my children all busted up laughing at Foof's joke. Apparently she takes after her Mother in trying to expose my children to the crazy, ill humored world. ;). Lol....

I know. Right? She's too funny, but I don't even think she was trying to be. She just said what came to her mind...or eye level. Glad we can be here to educate your young 'uns!
