Knock, Knock!

I promised some tidbits from BigBoy's library joke book. I really thought the book was from the '50s.

Nit: What's red and red and red all over?
Wit: I have no idea.
Nit: Measles with a sunburn.

My son has no idea what measles are. And measles weren't really around for my childhood either.

What is the difference between a photocopy machine and the Hong Kong flu?
One makes facsimiles and the other makes sick families.

Hong Kong what??

The jokes use dialogue with names like Ambrose, Claude, Arnold, Willard, and Gertrude. Seriously? These are name from my grandparents (literally) and their friends.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Pasteur who?
It's Pasteur bedtime.

Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
Hewlett who?
Hewlett the cat out of the bag.

A few were keepers for us, like:

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Annie who?
Annie body home?

But for the most part, BigBoy looks at me and says "huh?" The book was actually written and first published in 1992!
