Make Me Laugh (Friendly Friday)

The Stinker will be eight tomorrow.  

He has given us eight years of side-splitting, rambunctious, LOUD boyness.  He is laughter and sweetness; forgetfulness and charm.  He is the one who often asks me at 2:00 in the afternoon IF we've had lunch (and yes, we always have.  At 11:00.  Everyday). 

He is the one to give the best bear hugs after his asked-for bedtime prayers.  He is quick to find the funny in any situation but often the last to laugh at the subtle humor in the book we're reading (usually two paragraphs behind).  And he is the one who cannot pass up a joke book, a funny poem or the old Tom and Jerry cartoons.  He is my middle child, squeezed but thriving.

So in honor of his birthday, I can't resist sharing this with you:

Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
Tock Who?
Tock to me.  I'm lonely.

It's Friendly Friday.  I ask; you answer:
What is your favorite knock-knock joke that I can share with The Stinker for his birthday? 

Go ahead.  Tock to me.  It'll be a great gift!

Knock Knock. Who's there? Dog. Dog who? That dog has a big bone in his mouth and he's running and he will poop on your shoe!

That's the kinda knock knock jokes I'm inundated with these days so, yeah, I got nothing.

Kinda corny, but it's one of the nicer ones, if you know what I mean!! Have a great day, and Happy Birthday to your middle man!!

Knock knock

Who's there?


Cash who??

Gesundheit!! (I had to Google that to spell it!! You don't usually see it written.)

Think of it as increasing his vocabulary. :-)

And there is just something about 8 year old boys and joke books!

The Sharp's said...

Happy Birthday to the middle child! (I'm kind of partial to those!) I've got no jokes for you though!

My Ethan will be eight next week, and he loves jokes, too! ;)

Here's the one he wants to share:

Knock, Knock!
Who's There?
Hay ...
Hay Who?
Hey you, yourself! ... and mind your manners - I have a name, you know!

Karen said...

Happy Birthday to your little Stinker!

Rachel said...

Can't think of a good joke, but I still wanted to say "Happy BIrthday!!" Hope he has a great day! =)

GlowinGirl said...

These are great! So far The Stinker likes the mosquito one best, but I'm a bit partial to the interrupting cow.

Thanks for the laughs!

Rachel said...

By the birthday's in August too!!! =)

This Daddy said...

Happy Birthday. Its great to be 8.
Enjoy the birthday weekend

Ok the knock knock joke is funny to us because it has our sons name in it. I thought we made it up, but you never know

Knock knock

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What a great guy! I love hugs too.

e-Mom said...

Oh.. a new one! I've never heard your Tock variation. Fun!

Happy birthday big guy. :~D

(I can't think of any jokes at the moment. I'll come back if inspiration strikes!)

Awww.. Happy 8th Birthday!!!

From Noah:
Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Your underwear!

And then he busts out laughing. Yup, that's the humor you can look forward to from an almost 9 year old! LOL

Okay, what is sad is that Austin just came and told me the same joke. I told them it made no sense and wasn't even funny. They were incredulous! After all, it was from Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Oh, my bad, kids. My bad.

Cheryl said...

All I've got is an oldie:
Knock knock.
Who's there?
Banana who?
Banana knock knock.
Who's there?
Banana who?
Banana knock knock.
Who's there?
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn't say banana again?


Happy SITS SS!

Awww, Cheryl took, must be a good one if others thought of it, too!

Happy Belated B-day to the Stinker! I'm sure it was a happy one! Gotta love those boys, they'll certainly always love their momma!

Awww. Happy birthday to your little boy. 9 is such a great age. I'm having so much fun watching my 9 year old grow up. Thanks for your kind comment about him.

And thanks for stopping by on my SITS day!

Oh boy... I'm hopeless at jokes. But wish him happy birthday from me!

LoveMeDaily said...

That is the sweetest ;)

Sorry, I'm no good with knock knock jokes. I am going to share Tock to me, though.

Hope he had a wonderful day!
