What do cats do when they join a monastery? They take a "meow" of silence.
What does a cavewoman wear when she gets chilly? A neander-shawl.
Why did the shirt go to the doctor? It was feeling 'blousy.'
What do germs use to get rid of bad breath? Micro-scope.
While these are not complicated jokes, per se, my first grader is not familiar with the term 'vow of silence', probably has never used the terms blouse and shawl, and probably hasn't heard the word Neanderthal. My third grader is at a much higher reading level, but even she is not familiar enough with monastic practices to get the first one, and while I know she knows the term shawl, I'm much less sure that anyone has used the term blouse to her. Both of them use mouthwash, but we've never used the brand scope and we use it with them to prevent cavities and I've never mentioned it being for bad breath -- that joke would leave them completely nonplussed.
There are also jokes which depend upon pop-culture references like Will Smith or Scuby Doo. We read all the time at our house and talk about a wide variety of subjects, but I am sure my children are not familiar with either these icons.
You might object that these jokes can be explained to them and be a learning experience. This is true.Read more ›
You tear out the joke and fold it in half making like it a little greeting card with the answer to the riddle on the inside. Folded it is smaller than the size of a business card. You have a spot inside to write a note. I will be buying a newer version when this one runs out!
