Ultimate Knock Knock Joke (Limerick)

Updated on July 23, 2012
Source

I have a Knock Knock joke but you go first

Socrates agreed and began to burst

Knock Knock Socrates says

Plato decides to play

Who is there and Socrates is now cursed

"Knock Knock Jokes For Dummies"

I have decided to add a funny disclaimer just in case that Limerick flew over your head at mach speed. This is the ultimate Knock Knock joke because the person that agrees to start the joke ends up getting stuck with no idea of what to say.

Example:

Plato: "I have a knock knock joke, you go first."

Socrates: "All right"

Socrates: "Knock Knock" (For now, in most cases, "Plato" has no idea what is going on)

Plato: "Who is there?" ("Socrates" is having too much fun with this, as he anticipates the upcoming humor)

Socrates: (Here is the spot where "Socrates" gets really confused and his response is similar to this)

Socrates: ............. ("Socrates" is now dumbfounded as he realizes he has been tricked. He doesn't know what to say because it is not his joke)

Plato: (Uncontrollable laughter)


Hopefully, now you understand the joke, if you didn't all ready. This joke is hilarious to use on people. My brother and I use this joke all the time, and have only once have seen the joke turned around on us. The person actually thought of an answer to "who is there" on the spot and responded. Try this joke out and see what kind of responses you get! Do enjoy, and for fun, share some of your favorite knock knock jokes in the comments! Have a good day!

      This is not my joke, but one my younger brother and sister made up when they were 4 and 5. They are close in age and got along pretty good.

      Knock, Knock

      Who's there?

      Banana

      Banana who?

      Banana split in your eye.

      To this day I never could understand what was so hysterical about their joke. I remember this 25 years later only because I loved the way them 2 would just start laughing and they kept telling the joke to everyone. Kids have the best laugh when they are younger. My favorite memory of my brother and sister in the younger years of our happiness.
