Joke(s) of the Day

Morgan: "Knock knock!"

(Okay, see? Here's the thing. My kids do NOT understand the point of knock-knock jokes.)

Me: "Who's there?"

M: "Banana."

(ESPECIALLY this particular knock-kn0ck joke.)

Me: "Banana Who?"

M: "Knock knock!"

Me: "Who's there?"

(She says absentmindedly, looking for a parking space.)

M: "Banana!" (giggle)

Me: "Banana Who?"

M: "Knock knock!!!!!"

Me: "Who's there?"

M: "Orange!"

(What the . . . !?!?!?!? Is she going to get it right?)

Me, trying not to get too excited: "Orange Who?"

Morgan, triumphantly: "Orange ya glad I didn't say 'Banana?' "

I was shocked. Shocked! In all of her time on this planet, she has never once told this joke correctly. It was awesome!

She giggled and started again. I eagerly played along.

Morgan: "Knock knock!"

Me: "Who's there?"

M: "Banana."

Me: "Banana Who?"

M: "Knock knock!"

Me: "Who's there?"

M: "Banana."

Me: "Banana Who?"

M: "Knock knock!"

Me: "Who's there?"

M: "Chocolate Milk!"

Me: "Uh, Chocolate Milk Who?"

M: "Chocolate Milk ya glad I didn't say 'Banana?' "

Me: :::headsteeringwheel:::

But, hey, she did it once!

Ha! I love it. My kids love to tell that one, too, and as with Morgan, they frequently improvise and insert any food they can think of in place of orange. For some reason, "pineapple" shows up a lot at our house in this joke. ;o)
