This summer, Claire started to really appreciate jokes. We went to the beach with my best friend and her family, and her son, Tommy, LOVES to tell jokes. Claire couldn’t get enough! Her ability to craft her own joke needs some… work. Most of them start with “Why did the chicken…” and end with a punchline that doesn’t totally make sense. But telling jokes is a skill, and she’s working on it. 😉
I have never been much of a joke-teller myself, so I had to look up some good ones to share with Claire. Here are a few of her favorites (she loves knock knock jokes!):
Q: How do you make a tissue dance?
A: You put a little boogie in it.
-Owls say who?
Why did the girl smear peanut butter on the road?
To go with the traffic jam!
Interrupting, squawking parrot.
-Interrupting, squawking parr-
After many years in jail, a prisoner is finally released.
He runs around yelling, “I’m free! I’m free!”
A little kid walks up to him and says, “So what? I’m 4.”
Tick ’em up, I’m a tongue-tied wobber!
Why did half the chicken cross the road?
To get to his other side!
Lettuce in, it’s freezing out here!
What are your favorite jokes?
