Yesterday, in a nutshell:

- Four-hour meeting with vp and other deans, concluded only when hunger trumped the agenda.
- Shuttle diplomacy to resolve a sudden, emergency personnel matter before classes start.
- Laughing myself stupid along with The Wife, The Boy, and The Girl, telling each other the lamest knock-knock jokes in human history at dinner.

Balance. It’s all about balance.

Anybody know any good knock-knock jokes? The Boy loves them, and I ran out.

when in doubt, googgle:
Ugh, knock-knock jokes. Tristan doesn't quite grasp the concept, and will just say, "knock knock" over and over and over again until you want to scratch your eyes out.

Previously, my two faves were:
(...) Dwayne.
Dwayne who?
Dwayne the bathtub, I'm dwowning.

And the one about the interrupting cow.
PS I couldn't resist, so I went to the first site Linda mentioned. This one was cute, too:

Knock Knock!
Who's there?
Yo momma.
Yo momma, who?
Seriously, it's yo momma, open the damned door!

Make sure to leave in the curse when you teach it to the Boy, it's funnier that way!
Now, why would I have never, ever thought of looking for knock-knock jokes on the internet? I mean, I google everything, but I seriously doubt I'd have ever stumbled on those sites.
Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Banana who?

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Banana who?

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Banana who?

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn't say banana?


Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Ether who?
Ether bunny.

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Nother who?
Nother ether bunny.

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Cargo who?
Cargo beep, beep, run over ether bunny.

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Boo who?
Don't cry, ether bunnies be back next year.

Be careful. With certain children the banana one has been known to keep going and going and going and going.
I was going to put up the same banana one DocLarry did--it's really the only one I know--but I got called away from the computer.
We have a whole book of knock-knock jokes. Wish I could find it . . .
Knock knock!
Who's there?
Impatient cow
Impatient co..
Moo! (interrupt the other person)

This is a newer one, your son probably already knows it.
Knock knock
Who's there?
To get to the other side.

It never occurred to me to look on google. Good call!

The Boy loved the one about Dwayne.
