Last night at dinner, Olivia was trying to tell jokes and was not having much success. She had the form down, but that’s pretty much it.
Olivia: Why did the chicken cross the road?
Us: I dunno. Why?
Olivia: Because the dog was there.
Us: uh… (quizzical look)
Olivia was getting upset because we weren’t laughing at her jokes. So we tried to give her some examples of good jokes and why they are funny. That’s a hard thing to explain to a seven year old.
But I figure I’d round up some jokes to share at the next comedian’s round table. Appropriate for seven year olds of course. Here they are, Olivia. You’ll kill with these, I guarantee it!
