Wanna Hear a Good Joke?

What's a pigs favourite snack?

Popcorn.

What do you mean you don't get it and you're not laughing?

Apparently you have to be about 3 and three quarters to fully comprehend the true hilarity of this joke.

Also Thomas finds the joke can be endlessly revitalised by swapping the word pig for just about any other type of animal imaginable should the laughter start to dry up using just pig.

Yes it is a chore to force out a sincere laugh to a non funny joke 213 times a day.

Fortunately he is always guaranteed a laugh in this house because Eli thinks finds the word popcorn highly amusing indeed.

Too bad he has no clue what popcorn actually is.

I wish I was 3 again ;)

too funny!

Kendra finds anything to do with a pig very funnny... She's always saying stuff like, "Look at me! I'm jumping like a pig!!!" and then she laughs hysterically!

The almost 4 year-old sense of humor is a strange thing indeed! ;)

Kids jokes are the worst! Wait until they start trying to do knock knock jokes. It's torture!

what did one pig say to the other? i dunno either. i don't speak "pig"! bwahahahahaha! my middle child told me that once when he was about 5. kids sure are funny!

Kristen said...

That is funny, although I am sure in your case it actually isn't.

Hoping tomorrow he at least comes up with a new joke to tell you 213 times. :)

Brilliant joke - that's the kind of thing we hear here at home too... I love the way kids just crack themselves up!

Kristy said...

My 4 year old is really into telling jokes - absolutely loves it. The problem is, they don't make a lick of sense and she laughs like crazy!!!! For example,

Why didn't the chicken cross the road? Because he was on a light bulb! Then he flew away! hahahahaha

Yeah, you don't get it either?? You should start writing them down so you'll have them when he gets bigger. :)

You know, Spencer tells endless knock knock jokes. They are all basically like this:

Knock, knock.

Who's there?

Uh . . . (looking around the room frantically) COUCH!

Couch who?

AHHHHH! I lost my couch!

The hilarity never stops over here, either.

Yeah... Eilidh was killing herself laughing at a knock knock joke, where her name was the punchline. That went on for weeks. Kids are weird. Hopefully Thomas will have forgotten about the joke by now, and popcorn can once again be synonymous with yumminess and big buckets.

Krystyn said...

That's hilarious...well, maybe the first time it was!

Popcorn is better than poop or butt, right? Popcorn is much funnier.

Okay my first thought was that maybe I just don't get British jokes...then I read the rest of the post. So cute :)
