Kids say the darndest the Pun-tastic Ice Cream Party

Yesterday the Children's Library at the Central Library celebrated another successful Summer of Reading with ice cream sundaes, popsicles and jokes.

After enjoying the tasty treats we got to sharing laughs. Some of the jokes came from books and others were kid creations. Here's a smattering of jokes the kids found hilarious:

Knock knock. Who's there? Fire alarm. Fire alarm who? Don't touch the fire.

How do aliens stay in touch with their friends? Spacebook.

Knock knock. Who's there? Interrupting cow. Interrupting...Moo

Knock knock. Who's there? Johnny. Johnny who? Johnny Bravo.

Why did the bat use mouth wash? It had bat breath.

What bug arrests other bugs? A cop-roach.

Who made the monster's wish come true? His scary godmother.

Why were the watches arguing? Because they were ticked off.

What's the difference between boogers and broccoli? Kids eat boogers.

These are some of the titles we looked at for ideas:

Just Joking: 300 Hilarious Jokes, Tricky Tongue Twisters, and Ridiculous Riddles by National Geographic Kids

Knock-Knock Madness: "Who's There?" by the Laugh Factory 

Dinosaur Jokes by Jacqueline Horsfall

Really, Really Gross Jokes, Riddles & Tongue Twisters by Michael Pellowski

Thanks to all the families and schools that joined us at the ice cream party and who participated in the Summer of Reading program. We hope you had as much fun as we did. We are already looking forward to next summer!
