Kid's humor is a category of its own. Here's what my nieces (now, 5 and 7) used to think was a hilarious knock-knock joke:

Niece 1: Knock knock

Niece 2: Who's there?

Niece 1: Wolf

Niece 2: Wolf who?

Niece 1: Wolf and cow went to a party. [Pause a beat.] FART!

I don't know whether to tell them they're doing it wrong or encourage them to write scripts for the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

"SHE needs to go in the bin 474844747474747474474747474 times"

Did anybody else think really big numbers somehow made something that much funnier? I remember writing stories in 7th grade and for some reason just always used tons of numbers to amplify whatever it was. I guess I thought it was some form of absurdity? I'm not really sure why I thought it was necessary. But anybody else do similar things? I wonder what the explanation is.

Before about 3rd or 4th grade, my crowd pretty much only told dirty jokes, usually involving fucking, family members, animals, poop and such. They generally made sense, and were certainly offensive. Truthfully, however, they really were only suitable for children, ceasing to be funny well before puberty.

Kid fucked up the pajama joke. It has to be hangs out your pajamas. In fact the canonical version is "what's pink and wrinkled and hangs out your grandad's pajamas in the morning? your grandma". Which works best in a culture where people still hang laundry out on a line. I wonder if the person who entered this one got it wrong because they don't know about hanging out the washing.

A few months ago my daughter learned a joke:

Where do cows go on dates?
To the mooooovies.


Solid joke. She told it all the time and got a good response. Then she started with the variants:

Where do sheep go on dates?
To the baaaaavies.
Where do frogs go on dates?
To the riiiibbbittties.

etc.

I explained gently that, while these jokes are laudable efforts, they suck and cannot reasonably even be classified as jokes.

A few weeks later, she tried a new one:

Where do ghosts go on dates?
To the booooovies.


My heart burst with pride for my daughter's talent and intelligence while she ate some old breakfast cereal she peeled off the floor.

If you've had kids or been around them long enough this is exactly the kind of jokes they tell.

I have somehow endeared myself to my young cousins, and they revel in this sort of stuff. They find it especially funny when I admit that I don't understand the joke, as if they've pulled a fast one on me by telling me a joke that I didn't get.

They also enjoy making me close my eyes and then hitting me and running away.

Basically what I am say is children are sadists.

It's like I've gone back in time to hang out with my nine year old cousin, whose favorite song used to be, "If you're happy and you know it, pick your nose and eat it!"

To be fair, I encouraged it. And I was 24.

I love bad kid jokes. They are wonderful and make me giggle like a crazed five-year-old every time I hear one.

Lucky for me I live in St. Louis, where children tell jokes on Halloween to get their candy and once a year I get to stock up on all the bad, poorly told, poorly conceived kid jokes I can handle.

This year's winner of the kid most likely to be a Dadaist told me the following joke:
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Orange.
Orange who?
TOMATO! (Said while snagging a handful of candy and running down the sidewalk.)

I love my kids. My daughter told me a joke the other day and she tells great jokes. They're not like anybody else's jokes. That's why I like them. I've been doing comedy for 25 years. I know every joke, even if I haven't heard it. You start to tell me a joke, I know how it's going to work. But her jokes, I have no idea what's going to happen. I have no idea.

This is the joke she told me the other day. She said, "Who didn't let the gorilla into the ballet?" Who didn't let the gorilla into the ballet? Already I love this joke. I love this joke. I have not heard this joke. This is a new joke for me. "Who didn't let the gorilla into the ballet?" And I said, "Who?" And she said, "Just the people who were in charge of that decision."

My five year old niece was a little unclear on how to tell jokes and so I was quite helpful with the ideas of build-up and punchlines, which she understood surprisingly well, and really liked the idea of "punch" lines since it was a way of punching her older sister without getting in trouble.

So after some practice she came up with this:

What did the monkey say to the zombie?

Sorry, we don't have any brain-ana's today!

"FARTY FART FART!"
"Farty fart fart?"
Her, solemnly, "yeah."
Repeat a dozen more times as I beam with pride that she's telling a fart joke advanced for her age.

Last night she got hooked on to the comedic potential of the phrase "itchy butt." We are bad parents for laughing as hard as we did. She tried it out again this morning -- a comic is born!

Last summer on a car trip, my three older kids were taking turns telling jokes, many of which were very similar to these. The two-year-old wanted to get in on the action, so she made up her own.

Why did the cat go on the road?
To get to the barn!!

We all laughed, because . . . she was two. And we were all pretty impressed that she had come up with a joke that followed proper joke structure, even if maybe the punchline could have used some work. So she told it again. And again. And again. Exactly the same every time - same punchline, same intonation, same delighted loud laugh at her own cleverness. Her dad and I got tired of saying "I don't know. Why?" pretty quickly, but her siblings, to her great delight, continued to play along. Eventually, she ran out of takers and someone just guessed "to get to the barn?" She was furious and explained very clearly that we were NOT supposed to give the answer, we were supposed to ask "Why?". So someone asked "why?" And she told us.

To get to the office!!

Back in the day I worked in the education department of a university. I remember one of the lecturers telling me that this is a definite stage in cognitive development: when children understand the question/answer form of simple jokes, and understand that this is funny by convention, but don't have the mental machinery to understand the essential surprise that must underlie a punchline. Apparently true appreciation kicks in around 7.

A kid I knew - she had just turned four (I was in my mid-twenties) - was a nascent comedian and kind of had her own amazing sense of bizarre kid humor. She'd ask if you want to hear a funny joke and then she'd say something like, "Put the...water on your face." Or, delivered in a slightly halting and unsure manner, "Put the...put the soda on your face." And then she would laugh. Oh, how she'd laugh.

Sometimes the funny joke was, she'd just say in a very perfunctory tone, "Horse spit." Laughter.

Which was funny, because horse spit is funny, and your face is not where soda is supposed to go, and I was usually stoned as hell when she was around.

My two-year-old came up with his first joke a couple months ago. Want to hear it?

"Butt."

That's the whole joke. For his 6-year-old sister, though, let me tell you: it is plenty.

tspae: "The original no soap joke."

Best joke ever written, truly.

This reminds me of the thread about "Kids tell a story, adults act it out" videos from a few months ago.

Actual joke from my 4-year-old daughter:

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Banana.
Banana who?
Banana glad I didn't say orange?

So what's a pirate's favourite letter?

(Everyone says "arrrrr")

Actually, he's quite fond of the C!

I never thought bodily function jokes were funny, even as a kid. I'm a born punster.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine poop on a human face — forever.
