My husband can attest to the fact that I am not a joke person. I don't find them funny. I'm usually rolling my eyes....especially at his which are generally my father-in-law's first. But, first graders are very funny about jokes. They are getting old enough to realize the concept of humor, but not quite well enough to completely get it. They've heard jokes and want to retell them, but it quickly deteriorates to them making up their own "jokes." Here are two that were pretty cute before we got completely silly today.
Kid: What word do even teachers spell wrong?
Me: I don't know!
Kid: Wrong! Get it? Wrong? Peals of laughter ensue...
Different Kid: Why did the football coach go to the bank?
Me: I don't know, why?
Kid: To get his quarter back!
Heard any good jokes lately?
