Knock knock jokes

Another reason why I need a time machine.


I’m sorry, but I’ve been thinking about this all day…

And I think knock knock jokes are totally unrealistic.

Because seriously, who only knocks twice?

Calling them “Knock! Knock! Knock! Knock! Knock! Jokes” would be far more accurate.

Second, who asks “who’s there?” after someone knocks?

As if you’re going to tell someone to go away if they say, “It’s Bob.”

Knock knock knock!
“Who’s there?”
It’s Bob!
“Go away Bob!”

Doesn’t happen. (Ok, it could happen — but you would really have to not like Bob an awful lot. And if that was the case, why is Bob knocking on your door? Could it be that maybe he’s at your door to apologize for whatever it is you are unhappy with him about? And if you don’t answer the door, you’ll never know. So seriously, just go open the door and find out why he’s here!)

A more likely scenario is…

Knock knock knock!
(to which the response is)
Be right there!
(And then you go and open the door).

But that’s not even a good joke.. Or any kind of joke, really.

So I think the whole premise is flawed.

It shouldn’t be a “knock knock” joke, it should be a “who’s there?” joke — where you start the joke by saying…

“Who’s there?”

And the joke is that everyone thinks you are either blind, senile, or on drugs… because, let’s face it, that’s a really silly thing to ask people you’re talking to.

And yet, I think I found a new hobby…
