Silly Monkey Stories: A House of Cards

Something that is starting to develop around the dinner table is made up knock-knock jokes. I think it originated with my oldest recanting some jokes he had heard. But the cutest thing in the world is watching the twins try to do knock-knock jokes.

Luke will just start having no clue where he is going with it, the moment I say “who’s there?” I can see his eyes wildly darting about trying to find a visual queue as to what to say next, sometimes you can even guess.

But the cutest of all is when Makenzie attempts the classic Banana/Orange knock-knock we all grew up with. She has attempted it many times, but the majority goes like this:

Makenzie: “Baba, knock-knock!”
Me:
“Who’s there?”
Makenzie:
“Orange…er…Banana”
Me:
“Banana who?”
Makenzie:
“Orange!”

I always get a kick out of it, the expressions on their faces and the way you can see in their eyes the thought involved. They are always so proud when they are finished.


I have yet to get them to laugh at mine though…

Me: “Knock- knock”
Them:
“Who’s there?”
Me:
“Mickey Mouse”
Them:
“Mickey Mouse who?”
Me:
“MICKEY MOUSE IN HIS UNDERWEAR!”
Them:
“…sigh….oh Baba!”
