I’m starting a new book. What a great feeling! Right now, I’m still getting to know my characters a little bit. Looking at this process from the outside, I wander around a lot with a spacey look in my eye, muttering to myself. On the inside of my head, however, my characters are taking shape.

This book has a little boy in it, and I’ve decided to give him a great sense of humor. I’ve got a little boy of my own who loves to joke, so it hits my heart in the ol’ soft spot.


I’ve been looking up kid jokes, and there are a few I like a lot, but I don’t want to use the classics in my novel. I want to give my readers an unexpected laugh when they come across a kid joke they might not have heard before.

Here are a couple of classics that still give me a chuckle…

Q: What did Zero say to Eight?

A: Nice belt!

Q: What is brown and sticky?

A: A stick!

And for that potty humor (that won’t make it into my book, but cracked me up in the most immature way possible) :

Knock, knock

Who’s there?

Smell. Mop.

You can finish that one yourselves… But it made my 5 year old howl with laughter!

However, I’m on the hunt for some great kid jokes that aren’t so well known. Which bring me to YOU! What is your favorite kid joke? If it makes me laugh, too, it just might end up in my next novel.

(And you’d have my eternal gratitude…) So leave a comment and share your best kid joke!
