Knock knock walk me

Yesterday Special K discovered 'Knock Knock' jokes. Over forty-five minutes we spent telling them until we begged her to stop. Thank the gods for the Internet, so I could look them up. And she got her first pun. The classic

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Boo who?
Don't cry. It's only a joke.

Most of hers were more estoric like:
Knock Knock
Who's there?
Skunk who?
Skunk Flower.

I hope she's not going into that heavy joke-telling phase. If she's in that phase and Little T's in the 'walk me' phase, I may truly go off the deep end.

I give you a skunk flower

Glad you find them funny. :)

That's Ian's joke style right now. Esoteric is a good word.

Many times I have been dangerously close to going off the deep end. But I usually gain my footing just in time. :o)

Phew! We suffer together.

In that case, under NO circumstances should you tell her this joke:

Q: Knock, knock...
A: Who's there?
Q: Impatient cow.
A: Impa--

Can also be "Interrupting cow" but somehow I like "Impatient cow" better.

I also like this one but not as much:

Q: OK I got one for you. Say Knock knock?
A: Knock knock...
Q: Who's there?
A: ...(*)

(*) At this point the person NOT telling the joke realizes she has no clue who is actually there and the joke is really on her! Most listeners will just look at you funny, but some will say their own names and others will just come up with another knock-knock joke on the spot.

This is not a knock-knock but it's of the same general class:

Q: What's the difference between an orange?
A: I don't know?
Q: A bicycle, because a vest has no sleeves.

Hang in there.

I forgot the interrupting cow one! I bet she'd love that one. Thanks!

She hasn't learned the "banana" one yet, has she? That's the best/worst one, because if she's anything like me, she could go at that one for what seems like an hour before ending the joke.

We tried that one, but she didn't quite get it. Puns are still a bit beyond her.
