I am a bad joke teller.  But I love a good joke.  Here are a few kid-friendly jokes that made me smile today.

Q: What did the dad buffalo say to his son on the first day of school?
A: Bison

Mother: "Come on, Victor, you have to get out of bed or you'll be late for school."

Victor: "Mom, do I have to? All the teachers hate me, and all the students hate me, too."

Mother: "Yes, you do."

Victor: "Give me one good reason."

Mother: "Because you're 34 years old, and you're the principal."

Children love to tell jokes.  Jokes are a good bridge to storytelling.  And story telling is a great bridge to writing.  So tell a joke today and hear a joke today.  And laugh.

PLAY-TITUDE #25:   Tell a joke and laugh.
Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for dedicating space and time for writers and teachers of writing to come together to share ideas, practice and life experience.


  1. Thanks for the smile! My husband does puns all of the time. I really admire someone who can just whip off a play on words like that. I liked your jokes...some reminded me of what my husband would like...but the one about the principal not wanting to go to school...well, that one was really funny. Jackie

  2. Thanks for the kid friendly jokes. I am really bad at telling jokes because I can't remember them.

  3. I love short jokes! My young students love telling them! The fish joke got me!
