Today's date got me thinking of one of the few clean, kid friendly jokes I know:
"Why is six afraid of seven? Because seven-ate-nine."
It's funny: I have no shortage of dirty, inappropriate for kiddies jokes. They are HILARIOUS! But take out the swears, the double entendres, the all out smut, and jokes seem to fall flat. Jokes that I can tell children or more conservative adult friends, I can count on one hand.
Case in point:
1) "If Mississippi wore Missouri's New Jersey, what would Delaware? Idaho, Alaska!"
2) "Where do hotdogs and hamburgers go when they want to dance? To the meatball"
3) "What did the zero say to the eight? Nice belt."
And I'm drawing a blank right now for more adult jokes that aren't about the Pythagorean theory, the theory of relativity, chemistry, or anatomy. I'd share those with y'all, because --hello, bloggie land --- you guys are probably bigger nerd than I am. But they tend to be long and rambling.
Why is it that the "Wedding Crasher", "Knocked Up", "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" style jokes are so abundant, but the "Grumpy Old Men", "Uncle Buck" kind of jokes are so rare?
Anybody know any good, clean jokes? Share em with me!
