Yay! I Can Post!

Lets celebrate with a knock-knock joke!

Cassie: Mommy, knock-knock!

Lucy: Who's there?

Cassie: Boo-hoo

Lucy: Boo-hoo who?

Cassie: Don't cry! Its only Boo-hoo!

At which point she falls on the ground laughing hysterically. Which makes me laugh. Which reinforces the idea that its a wonderfully funny joke. Which makes her want to tell it again and again and again. There are worse ways to spend the day.


I remember one long drive home from vacation where the Architect who was probably 4 or 5 made up a joke:

Q:Why did the dog go in the garbage can?
A:To get his hat

This of course was followed by laughter (even by us because it was so off the wall) which then led to the joke being repeated incessantly for the next 100 miles.

Kids! Just gotta love em.

This is sorta off topic, but do you have on your sight somewhere a run down of your cast of characters? LOL. Meaning your kids/cats/dogs/iguana's names and ages?

I believe the iguana is also named Lucy, just to keep things interesting.

Fowl humorYou're right the joke is older than everyone you know, ulesns you know someone who's at least 164 years old.According to , the joke first appeared in the March 1847 edition of Knickerbocker, or New York Monthly Magazine. A little bit of extra digging reveals the full text of the original joke read as follows: There are quips and quillets' which seem actual conundrums, but yet are none. Of such is this: Why does a chicken cross the street? Are you out of town?' Do you give it up?' Well, then: Because it wants to get to the other side!' Clearly, people of the mid-19th century were far more easily amused than we are today.I think.More chicken-style humorIn addition to the standard answer, To get to the other side, here are 15 more possible answers to the question Why did the chicken cross the road? Because it felt like it.Because it needed the exercise.Because she couldn't fly.It wanted a change of scenery.It was collecting experiences for its next book.The light turned green.Because his mom was behind him with a list of chores.Because he and the cow were going to the mooooo-vie theater.It wanted to prove to the armadillo that it could be done.To avoid the rupture in the space-time continuum.To get away from the Colonel. (aka the icon of KFC)Because it was the pig's day off.All the other chickens were doing it, and it just wanted to fit in.Because the road was there.Because he wanted to make everyone wonder why he crossed the road.Chicken photo bya0
