Knock Knock

Young children, no matter how bright they may be, do not get knock knock jokes.  They just don’t.

Wildling spent quite a bit of time telling knock knock jokes today.  She was falling over laughing at the hilarity. While I’m sure the jokes were uproarious to a four-year-old, I’m also quite certain that they solidly prove my hypothesis – young children just do not get knock knock jokes.

Here’s a small sampling:

– Knock knock
Who’s there?
– Pizza
Pizza who?
– Pizza are you gonna eat me because I’m a pizza?

– Knock Knock
Who’s there?
– Pizza Apple
Pizza Apple who?
– Pizza Apple would you like some water to drink, pizza apple? Oh, you can’t because you don’t have a mouth!

– Knock knock
Who’s there?
– Skeletor.
Skeletor who?
– Skeletor, shouldn’t you be nice to people like Teela who have magic powers?

– Knock knock
Who’s there?
– Sicky
Sicky who?
– Sicky, do you have the flu? Is that why you’re called sicky?

– Knock knock
Hello
– No, Mellow! You’re supposed to say ‘who’s there!’ Try again. Knock knock
Hello
– Not hello! Stop saying hello! Say ‘who’s there?’ Knock knock
Hello
– Fine say hello. Water.
Hello
– STOP IT MELLOW! YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO SAY WATER WHO! YOU’RE RUINING THE JOKE!
