Lunchtime Poll

Knock-knock! Who’s There? The Lunchtime Poll!

My daughter is three years old and has recently discovered knock-knock jokes. I need some fresh material, because her limited repertoire is getting old fast.

Her favorite is an adorably dysfunctional version of “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?” and she’s also fond of “Boo who?/Don’t cry!” and “Who who?/You’re an owl!” What are your favorite knock-knock jokes? (Don’t worry, if there are dirty ones, I won’t tell her!)

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

A favorite in our house was:

Knock knock. Who’s there? Interrupting Cow. Interrupting cow wh… MOOOO!!!

I will warn you, however, small children will soon figure out that anything can interrupt a joke, including cats, cars, trees and houses. (If you are wondering, an Interrupting Tree sounds like “WEEEEOOOOOWEEEEOOOO!”)
