Anatomy of a Joke

I love when little kids start learning to tell jokes. The concept is there, but the punch line is never quite…funny, which makes it hilarious as all get out. Here are Brenia’s first attempts at humor:

Her: Knock knock.
Me: Who’s there?
Her: Baby not crying.
Me: Baby not crying who?
Her: Lorelai!

Her: Knock knock.
Stacia: Who’s there?
Her: Food
Stacia: Food who?
Her: Food eating!
Stacia: That doesn’t even make sense.
Her: It’s a joke, Stacia!

  1. Mine always give away the punchline while telling the beginning of the joke. Guess I won’t ever see them on Leno.

  2. You mean jokes are supposed to make sense??

    Thanks for the comment!
