Max the comedian

Tonight as I was tucking Max into bed, he said "Mom, tell me a joke!"

Me: "Knock knock."
Max: "Who's there?"
Me: "Boo!"
Max: "Who's boo?"
Me: "No, Max, you're supposed to say boo who?
Max: "Who's boo!"
Me: "No, boo who!"
Max: "Boo who!"
Me: "You don't need to cry about it."

Max looks at me blankly.

Me: "Get it? Boo hoo like you're crying?"
Max: "Tell me another joke."
Me: "Knock knock"
Max: "Who's there?"
Me: "Dwayne"
Max: "Who's Dwayne?"
Me: "No, you say Dwayne who?"
Max: "Dwayne who?"
Me: "Dwayne the bathtub, I'm dwowning!"

Max looks at me blankly.

Max: "Tell me another joke."
Me: Knock knock."
Max: "Who's there?"
Me: "Banana"
Max: "Who's banana?"
Me: "No Max, say BANANA WHO!"
Max: "OK"
Me: "Knock knock."
Max: "Who's there?"
Me: "Banana."
Max: "Who's banana?"
Me: "What?"
Max: "Banana who?"
Me: "Knock knock."
Who's there?"
Me: "Banana."
Max: (giggling)"Banana who?"
Me: "Knock knock."
Who's there?"
Me: "Banana."
Max: (giggling louder)"Banana who?"
Me: "Knock knock."
Who's there?"
Me: "Orange"
Max: (giggle giggle) "Orange who?"
Me: "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"

Max stops giggling and says:

"Was that a joke?"

I'll teach Max a few jokes. And then you might never talk to me again.

So young and already a critic. Somewhat like my wife who hid my book of blonde jokes the first year of our marriage. Fifteen years later I still can't find it.

My 14 year old son still doesn't get the hang of knock knock jokes. It gets old pretty quickly when you have to explain every joke to him.
