Circus Boy #2 really likes attention. He gets it any way he can, but first and foremost by (attempting) being funny. So rather than subject ourselves, our family, our friends, his teachers and classmates to “POOPY!!! HAHAHAHA” or “How did the alligator climb the tree into the sky and get on a really, really, really high airplane and go to the moon? By California!! HAHAHAHAHA!!” and other things which make no sense at all and are not remotely funny, we decided to teach the boy a few jokes. We started with these two:
1) What game do you play with a wombat?
2) Knock-Knock, Who’s there?, Boo, Boo-who?
Don’t cry its only a joke!
Well, apparently he started to tell his teacher the wombat one, but didn’t tell her he was telling a joke, so when he asked what game you play with a wombat, she told him “I don’t want to play with a wombat!” (Which, his retelling of, totally made me laugh.)
So he tried his jokes on us at home; the ones who taught him the jokes, mind you. Except, that he had them a little….melded.
Mommy, what do you play with a wombat?
::sigh:: I don’t know, what?
::Pretend laughter:: interrupted by….
Don’t cry, Mommy, its only a joke!
HAHA!! ::Real laughter:: And Daddy nearly sprayed tea out of his nose.
That kid is good for a joke, even when he isn’t tell it right.
Anyone have any jokes a soon to 4 year-old would get? He needs some new material.
