It’s a Twin Thang – I Wouldn’t Understand

Here is The Goon Squad’s favorite joke.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…

I’m not kidding. That is the whole joke. I don’t get get it either.

They both tell it to each other (and other puzzled looking people) all of the time. They both crack up, all of the time. Sometimes when they tell the joke they think it is hilarious to actually knock on the refrigerator, or a door.

And sometimes they mix it up and it goes like this:

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?

It is almost like that old joke “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?” except different. I guess if I had a captive sibling audience that thought I was really funny I’d tell the same stupid joke over and over too.

  1. The PB & The J had this exchange when they were younger:

    THEM: Knock, knock
    ME: Who’s There?
    THEM: Giggle, giggle, giggle

    It must be a twin thing…

  2. It may not be a twin thing. Jack does a very similar joke with no punchline and him and his sister laugh and laugh.

  3. the kaiser says:

    That joke is totally funnier than anything Erin’s ever come up with.

  4. Just pray they don’t say they’re Strawberry. I don’t want to spoil the punchline for ye but it ain’t pretty…

  5. At least they like fruit!

  6. Here’s the real joke: What do you get when you poor water down a rabbit hole? Hot cross bunnies.

    Here’s how two year old Girlie told it (over and over and over): What do you get when you poor hot water down a rhino hole? No punch line because that was the whole joke (the hole joke).

    I actually miss those jokes right now. Today she called me a rotten freak. Ugh. (How did she find out?)

  7. It may not be a twin thing, my girls do it too. Although Nata thinks all jokes are funny if they come out of her big sister mouth.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    Cause he’s a chicken. (Insert hysterical girl giggles.) I have yet to figure this one out.

  8. My son’s famous knock knock joke that he made up on his own:

    Knock Knock?
    Who’s there?
    Underwear who?
    Underwear! Underwear!

    This is the kid who also insisted the words to the song Itsy Bitsy Spider were “The Itsy JUNGLE Spider” and expected me to KNOW that song and sing it. And if anyone is interested, I do know the song because I created lyrics to it.

  9. The joke at our house is supposed to go like this
    Knock Knock
    Who’s there?
    Lou who?
    Don’t cry!
    but he just does it this way
    Knock Knock
    who’s there?
    don’t cry!

    and laughs and laughs…….

  10. times like these I am glad nut isn’t really talking yet. 😛

  11. What? You mean you don’t get it? Well if you don’t get it, I’m certainly not going to explain it to you.

  12. I love the way kids butcher jokes. It’s hilarious to watch their minds work (or not)…

  13. That’s a good joke! :)

  14. Ha! Okay, yeah, I was mildly amused by the apple joke. Not only is it a twin thing…it’s an overworked dude at the end of a long day thing.

  15. I’m still getting over the fact that they tell jokes already. Can’t wait to meet this duo.

  16. That’s hilarious! It may not be a twin thing. When I was little, I was notorious for this little gem:

    Me: Why did the flower cross the road?
    Poor unsuspecting person: I don’t know…why?
    Me: because it wanted to go to college!

    duh!! and I would actually act as if they were dumb for not knowing. Meanwhile, I would crack myself up everytime I said it!……I hope weirdness isn’t hereditary.

  17. My sister and I (not twins) would crack each other up with absurd, nonsensical jokes all the time. I can’t remember why, just that we did. I think that they were probably so funny to us because they were *our* jokes and nobody else could – or would – laugh at them.

    I like to think that my sense of humour has become more sophisticated, but probably not.

  18. I wish I had a damn twin to laugh at my jokes. I just laugh at my own. My current favorite kid joke is this:

    Me: Ask me if I’m an orange.
    Ben: Are you and orange?
    Me: No! Ha, ha, ha!
    Ben: Oh.

  19. Awesome. I truly think that’s how people become funny as older children and adults. People just keep telling them they’re hilarious until it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. You’ve got two budding comedians on your hands.
