Do the jokes kids tell ever make sense???

kids jokes make sense

Maybe these jokes only make a horse laugh…

So my two-year-old son is currently obsessed with knock-knock jokes. But of course, since he’s two, so they don’t make a lick of sense. Not one single bit. For example, this was his latest.

Knock Knock?
Who’s There?
Orange who?
Orange is better than boogers.

Yeah, see? I told you. Not one single bit of sense to be found there. So I put the call out on Facebook to see how many other parents shared my pain. Holy mackeroli! The post went on fire! There were so many nonsensical jokes shared that I had to pick out a few and post them here. I’m seriously thrilled that I’m not alone in this insanity…

I’ve broken them into two categories.


1. Knock knock
Who’s there?
Butt who?
Butt poop!

2. Knock knock
Who’s there?
Banana who?
I just farted.

3. Knock knock
Who’s there?
Uhm… that’s your name, that isn’t really a joke.
Yeah it is, I made it up so I can make the joke whatever I want.

4. Knock knock
Who’s there?
Door bell who?
Well why don’t you go answer it and find out!


1. Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? Because it was dead.
2. Why did the little girl throw the couch out the window? Because she wanted to see it fly.
3. Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he wanted to.

And this folks is why my blog is called MARTINIS and Minivans. The martinis are truly the key to parenting, and to listening to horrible, horrible jokes…



  1. They never go out of style, do they? At least with kids. LOL

  2. I am a horrible mom who loves corny, non-PC jokes. My four year old once said to my uncle “Why did Marcy fall off the swing.” When he asked why, she responded “Because she didn’t have any arms.” Then she said “Knock knock” and he, of course, responded, “Who’s there” – to which she responded with absolutely comedic timing and a hint of disapproval in her voice – “Not Marcy, she doesn’t have any arms.”

    She bowed when she was complete, and we were all killing ourselves laughing.

    Truly though – if she said that joke at school, I’d probably be in for a few martinis too…

  3. I was seriously laughing just at the title of the post. I used to do this to my parents all the time… but minus the “bathroom humor” since I’m a girl:) What always amused me as a parent was how I would still play along with the knock knock jokes, even thought I knew they weren’t going to make any sense. Too funny!!

  4. What a great post for Monday morning! So funny!

  5. One can never go wrong with fart jokes and dead monkey jokes!!

  6. So adorable and hilarious! I bought my son a book of knock knock jokes but they are all way over his head. He reads them, looks confused and then says, “I don’t get it”. Poor little guy!

  7. Even though these jokes are incredibly terrible, I still laughed. You never know what’s gonna come out of their mouths!

  8. Well, he is right about one thing: Orange IS better than boogers! ;0 Funny stuff.

  9. Well, I guess a monkey would fall out of a tree if it was dead. I feel so much more enlightened now. I actually like a lot of these jokes better than most grown-up humor. Kids know how to have a good time.

  10. Too funny. My sons are grown now but they used to tell the same kind of jokes. Some things never change. Enjoy!

  11. Oh my goodness! Those were so nonsensical that I honestly laughed out loud. My favorite has to be Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? Because he was dead. :)
