What's black and white and red all over? A guy in a tuxedo without any jokes.
April 8, 2011 12:24 PM   Subscribe

Jokes. We all know one, maybe even two or three, and there's a good chance they're slightly or completely off-color. But let's say you need to entertain a room of five- to eight-year-olds, and they're expecting a non-stop barrage of hilarity. Anyone have any favorite kids' jokes they'd like to share?

I always like saying
"Why can't [famous person] use this finger?"
*hold up any finger*
"Because it's MINE!"

Kids love it, and it's even better if you pick something that adults in the room think you're going to turn into something dirty, only to relieve them when you don't. I used to say "Bill Clinton". "Michael Jackson" was good too, though less appropriate now... but you get the idea.

- How do you wake up Lady Gaga?
- Poker Face

- How does Lady Gaga like her steak?
- Raw raw... raw raw raw raw (think, Bad Romance tune)

- What's about a foot long, pink and slippery?
- A slipper! (another good one for the adults in the room)

I was waiting for the bus one day and this guy walked by snapping his fingers.
(snap your fingers in a jazzy beat)
I asked him what he was doing and he said, "I'm grooving to the music of life," and he kept on walking.
A few minutes later, this girl walked by snapping her fingers.
(snap your fingers in a rock like beat)
I asked him what she was doing and she said "I'm rocking to the rhythm of the planet," and she kept on walking.
Then the bus arrived and this guy got off and he was snapping his fingers all over the place.
(snap your fingers all crazy with no beat)
I asked if he was grooving to the music of life or rocking to the rhythm of the planet and he said, "No, I've got boogers on my fingers and they won't come off!"

A chicken walks into the library and orders three books.
Book! Book! Book! (Say this in a voice that sounds like a chicken clucking.)
The librarian is surprised because he's never seen a chicken asking for books in the library before, but he decides it's the library's duty to serve all their customers, so he goes into the stacks and selects three books that would be of interest to chickens. The chicken leaves the library carrying the books under her wing.
The next day, the chicken returns the books and orders three more books.
Book! Book! Book! (Say this in the chicken clucking voice.)
The librarian is puzzled, but goes back to the stacks and selects three more books of interest to chickens. The chicken leaves the library carrying the books under her wing.
The next day, the chicken returns the books and orders yet another three books.
Book! Book! Book! (Say this in the chicken clucking voice.)
This time the librarian gets so curious that he selects three books, gives them to the chicken, and then quietly follows the chicken as she leaves the library with the books. The chicken walks all the way down the street, all the way out to the edge of the town, and all the way to the swamp. There, the chicken presents the books to a frog, but the frog rejects the books and says,
Read it.... Read it read it. (Say this in a voice that sounds like a frog croaking.)

"Got any grapes?" says the duck.
"I just told you, no," says the bartender.
"Oh. Any grapes back there?" says the duck.
"Scram!" says the bartender.
"Okay," says the duck, "but got any grapes?"
By this point, the bartender is furious. "Listen, duck, I don't have any grapes. None at all. If you so much as ask me for a grape one more time, I'm gonna nail your beak to this here bar. You understand what I'm saying to you?"
"Got any nails? asks the duck.
"No."

What do you get when you cross a helicopter with a rhino? Hell if I know.

A ship's captain is taking his treasure in to port. The ship is attacked by a pirate ship. The captain turns to his first mate and says "first mate, bring me my red pants!" He changes into the pants and the crew fight off the pirate ship successfully.
As they near the shore, they suddenly see four pirate ships! The captain again turns to his first mate and demands his red pants. Again, he and his crew are able to fight off the pirates, and continue to sail to shore.
A crew member asks, "captain, why do you always ask for your red pants before we go in to battle?" The captain explains that they help to hide any blood he might have, which makes his crew much braver in defending the ship.
Just as the ship is getting in to port, they suddenly run up on ten pirate ships! The captain turns to his first mate and says "first mate, bring me my brown pants!"

An ant goes to her favourite beach, picks a spot, spreads out her towel, takes out her sunglasses, puts them on, takes out the suntan lotion and spreads it over herself and lies down to sun herself.

An elephant comes along and plops down in front of the ant, leaving her in the shade.

The ant screams, pokes and kicks at the elephant, but the elephant can't hear her cause she's so small.

So the ant stands up, rolls up her towel, takes off the suntan lotion and starts walking around the elephant.

About 3 hours later, she's made it all the way around, and unrolls her towel, takes out her sunglasses, puts them on, reapplies the suntan lotion and lies down, in front of the elephant.

Then she looks up and says triumphantly 'Annoying, isn't it???'
