Apparently Katie is under the impression that all jokes must begin with “knock! knock!”.
Here’s how our conversation went over breakfast this morning.
K: Knock! Knock!
Me: Who’s there?
Me: Table who?
K: What has 4 legs but doesn’t walk?
K: A table! Har har har!
K: Knock! knock!
Me: Is this a trick question?
Me: Zebra who?
K: Where can you find a zebra?
Me: Um…I don’t understand….er…what?
K: Depends on where you left him! Hee hee hee!
And let’s not leave Nanner out. Upon hearing her sister’s riot act, she had to chime in with her joke. This is her old faithful. I’ve never heard her tell anything but this:
H: Knock! Knock!
Me: …sigh…Who’s there?
H: Banana pants!
Me: Banana pants who?
H: Spongebob banana pants pull out the drain I’m drowning in the bathtub!
*insert hysterical laughter by two silly girls here*
I think that Hannah has just decided to take a few key elements of some old standard knock-knock jokes and roll them into one. Am I right?
