What’s black and white and red all over?
A skunk on a trampoline.
That joke (from a book we read together) started my daughter on her new current obsession for jokes. She thinks they are hilarious, even when she doesn’t understand them – at all. Feeding my daughter new and funny jokes that she can actually get has become my new job.
Our standard conversation goes something like this:
“Mommy, tell me a joke.”
“Ummmmm,” raking my brain for the last joke I stocked away in my brain for this moment. What did the diamonds name their baby? - Jules.
“Ah ha.” (Her standard, canned “laugh” that she uses for all jokes.)
Then she proceeds to take my joke and twist it into something like this:
“What did the shoes name their baby? - Doodle-y-wack”
And that joke is also followed by her canned. “Ah ha.” And then, “Is that funny mommy?”
No K, that doesn’t make sense either…
And a few hours later… rinse and repeat.
Luckily a steady supply of Popsicles this summer has produced an almost daily supply of fresh material. How kind of Popsicle to include jokes on it’s sticks!
What? You haven’t noticed that Popsicle includes jokes on it’s sticks? Well it does, and what’s more they are funny too. Now before you buy a box of Popsicles and report back to me that there were no jokes on your sticks, let me say that jokes are on most Popsicles. We have had a large variety of Popsicles in the house this summer and I am afraid I haven’t paid attention to which Popsicles had jokes and which did not. But most do. I can assure you that Yosicles do have jokes and Fudgesicles (my current obsession) do not.
Here are a few jokes we have discovered on our Popsicle sticks:
What was a trick that the load of bread taught the dog? – Roll over
What kind of bird writes letters? – A pen-quin
What kind of tree would have the best bark? - Dogwood
How can you defend yourself under water? – Carry a sword fish
What do you do when your fish sings flat? – Tune-a-fish
Jokes on the sticks are just another reason to love Popsicles this summer. For kids who are reading, the joke is cleverly on the handle while the pun is hidden beneath the Popsicle. After you have committed the joke to memory, turn that joke into a craft project to keep the fun going.
