Best Mom Tip #39: Know a good knock-knock joke

Who’s there?
Dishes who?
Dishes the police! Stick ’em up!

Who’s there?
Orange who?
Orange you gonna open this door?

Who’s there?
Boo who?
Why are you crying?

Aren’t knock-knock jokes great? My 4-year-old is currently VERY into knock-knock jokes. This is the one she made up today:

LP: Knock-knock.
Me: Who’s there?
LP: Bottom
Me, with great reluctance: Bottom who?
LP: Bottom gonna slimer the whole house and the entire world and then gonna take a rest and do it again.

Then she cracked up. I don’t know what slimer means and I don’t know how a bottom would do that. I’m pretty sure that if it is a real thing, I’ve had a little bottom or two slimer me and I didn’t find it at all funny.

My favorite part of the joke is that it has a definitely threatening quality. She caught part of a commercial for The Godfather on TV yesterday and she seemed way too interested for a 4-year-old girl. Next thing I know her dollhouse will be a compound and Barbie will wake up with a My Little Pony head in her bed.

Who’s there?
An Italian guy with a giant florist’s box. Don’t open the door!
