Knock-Knocking at the library

We enrolled in our local library's summer reading program..when I say "we" I mean my children. The theme this year is "BE CREATIVE @ YOUR LIBRARY". They must visit the library 4 times and read for a total of 10 hours. They must also do at least 10 of the listed activities. We brought the paper booklets today to get some stamps and stickers and get a little closer to the "prizes" which include......Free admission to a Salt Dogs game (baseball), free admission to Lincoln Childrens museum, a free ride on the train at the zoo, and a free Happy Meal at McDonalds. One of the activities on the list is to tell a joke to a volunteer or librarian...so I told Joe he should tell the volunteer a joke...I told him to tell her a knock knock joke.....okay, I have been through many many many knock knock jokes in my career as a mother....I've heard this one....
knock knock
who's there
House
house who?
House pizza
LOLLOLLOLLLOLLL!!!

And this one
Knock knock
whos there?
pizza
pizza who?
pizza house
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLLLL!!!!

So, I decided I would actually teach Joe some real knock knock jokes, so they would actually make sense and be funny....
so the two I taught him were these
Knock Knock
who's there
banana
banana who
knock knock
who's there?
banana
banana who?
knock knock
who's there?
banana
bananawho?
knock knock
who's there?
orange
orange who?
orange you glad I didn't say banana?

and this one

Knock Knock
who's there?
boo
boo who?
Oh, don't cry!

So, Joe told the volunteer a knock knock joke......it went like this.....
Knock Knock
who's there?
BOO!!!
boo who?
Orange boo!

I love little kids knock-knock jokes. I remember my little neice and nephew making up there own jokes that made absolutely no sense and they would just laugh at each other. Your kids are so cute.
