Knock Knock Jokes

Discussion started on

Do you have any favorite knock-knock jokes that are absolutely laugh out loud funny? Or any funny knock-knock jokes that deal with kings, queens, castles, etc?

Thanks!

Hey... I came here to READ knock knock jokes, NOT to post them! Darn. Will have to come back later for the laughs!

Hi, Katy! Sounds like you're on to some funny business!

Impatient cow/Mooo. That's the only one I ever laughed at. It's all in the timing.

Aw man, Kurtis beat me on the impatient cow one. All time favorite.

I'm not sure I get it. Knock-knock--who's there? Impatient cow. Impatient cow, who? Moo?

And, yes, Salina, I try to get into funny business as often as possible.  :chickendance

The joke is when impatient cow moos before the person can say "who's there."

I love the cow joke -- only we always said "interrupting cow" not impatient.  Tomato, tomahto...

My wife and I have an ongoing debate over this. But she also plays "duck duck grey duck" instead of "duck duck goose," so she's obviously crazy and backwards. (Seriously, I think "interrupting cow" telegraphs the punchline too much.)

lol I never heard the cantaloupe joke before.

My son loves knock, knock jokes, but of course I can't think of our favorites when I need to.  :)

Good luck!

Well, "duck duck grey duck" is just nuts! :)

You're right about "interrupting", of course -- but when my kids started telling it and getting it, they were too young to worry about giving away the punchline. :biggrin
