Childhood Chuckles

There’s a very innocent, mostly groan-inducing, genre of jokes that could only have been invented in the playground.  I’ve put together my favourite from “back in the day.”  This rather lazy post is dedicated to those who told them.

What do you call a sheep with no head and no legs?
A cloud.

A man walks into a doctor’s office dressed only in Glad wrap.
“Well,” said the doctor, “I can clearly see you’re nuts.”

What’s green and flies?

Why did the chicken go to the library?
To get a book book book.

Why did the dinosaur cross the road?
Because chickens hadn’t been invented.

How do you catch a bra?
Set a booby trap.

Doctor, Doctor – I think I’m a set of curtains!
Pull yourself together!

Why did the place crash?
Because the pilot was a tomato.

Knock knock.
Who’s there?
Lettuce who?
Lettuce in, can’t you see I’m knocking?

BOOM BOOM!  Any more to add…?

  1. My favourites used to be:

    What's brown and sticky… A Stick


    Where to whales catch a train… From a whaleway station

    Loving the jokes you posted – very nostalgic! x

  2. Farmer's Wife that is an excellent question and I'll find out for you. I know the main term is 'bollocks' so am not sure about 'nuts.' The big questions here!

    Hanzor those are FANTASTIC! I had forgotten the stick one, and the whale one is totally new to me.

    There was a great one about a fridge and a billiard table…. can't think of it. Anyone? Charlie?

  3. Brilliant, I must make a note of these – my children are obsessed with telling jokes at the moment, and I could do with some new ones in my repertoire! A couple of favourites:
    Q: What do you call a gorilla with bananas in his ears?
    A: anything you like, he can't hear you!

    Q: Why do bees have sticky hair
    A: Because they use a honeycomb!

  4. Love them, thank you.

    I remembered the ones i was trying to think of, although my earlier comment has given answers away. Tragedy!

    What's black, white and stands in a paddock?
    A fridge with a leather jacket on, that's been moved outside.

    What's green and brown and if it fell out of a tree and hit you on the head it'd really hurt?
    A billiard table that's been put in a tree.

    Oh yeah.
