Knock knock. Who's there? Laughter. Laughter who?

I'm on a misson to make a seven year old girl laugh.

She is not unhappy or anything, she just doesn't laugh.

I told her that I was making it my mission in life to make her laugh.

She lives right next door so I can find her to tell her jokes.

I want to tell her a joke a day until I get her to laugh.

Knock knock jokes, elephant jokes, whatever jokes that are okay for a seven year old girl -- throw 'em at me.

I've told her all my jokes and got nothing so these need to be pretty good jokes.

You submit your jokes and I will tell her one joke per day until I get her to laugh. The grand prize for coming up with the joke that makes her laugh will be my undying gratitude.

One.....

Two.....

Three......

Joke!

That's a pretty good mission, boomerang.

Good for you!

But sorry, at this time I don't know even one joke which a 7 year old would find amusing. But I will look around & see what I can find!

Good luck with your mission!

What time is it when an elephant sits on your fence?

Time out, elephant! (That's Yaya's version, the real version is "time to get a new fence")


My girls love tongue-twisters right now, especially when an adult "can't" get it right.

What's the most dangerous animal in the jungle?

A duck with a flame thrower.

@boomerang,
This is liable to make you laugh more than her, but in the Knock Knock joke vein you may want to try:

"Hey, I got a good knock knock joke. You start it."

"Knock knock."

{SILENCE}

Better yet, ask her if she ever ate cow milk or chicken eggs, and while you do so, make a face that expresses disgust.

Chances are pretty good she will protest that she has never done such a disgusting thing.

Once you explain the "joke" she may not laugh hysterically, but she will be hel bent on trying it out with her friends (Just like the knock knock joke above).

What's better, a belly laugh from your joke or the satifaction of knowing that she will feel wonderful pulling a joke on her friends?

If you just want to make her laugh, act like a complete idiot.

No joke is needed.

Something must be done before she turns into a humorless grown up. I'll come up with some zingers later

@boomerang,
My nine year old daughter laughs at the Captain Underpants books (a lot of toilet humor):

Quote:
Knock Knock

Who's There?

Olive Toop

Olive Toop Who?

So do I, but I don't brag about it.


(I had to think a long time about that one. Then I realized "Olive Toop Who" sounds like you are saying "I love to poo." Captain Underpants is not in the same literary category as Shakespeare.)

These are great! Thank you!

I'm going to try them out on Mo.

The Olive Toop one cracked me up so I'm thinking any seven year old would love it.

Don't have any jokes to offer, but I'm curious about the girl.

I'm not trying to be a buzz kill here on the joke list, but I'm seriously wondering about the girls feelings about all this?

Why is it do you think she doesn't laugh?

Why is it so important to you to make her laugh? Especially to the point of telling her you're not going go stop until she does?

Is she maybe just a serious minded child? You said she wasn't unhappy.

When you tell her the jokes and she doesn't laugh, what is her response?
Does it seem like she's trying not to laugh, like she's making it a game with you?

Or, does it appear she really doesn't find your jokes funny?

Does she like you? Does it seem she takes your jokes good naturedly, or does she maybe give any signs that you'd just as soon stop all this?

I know, I know, I know you're good with kids boomerang, and I can't see the girl, nor do I know anything about her.

Maybe though, she's just not the laughing kind.
I know adults like that, who are happy, but just don't joke or laugh much.


Not to say this is the situation at all, but when I was about her age a friend of my parents would call me by my sisters name whenever he saw me. He knew my name, it wasn't like he was forgetting. I corrected him each time, and I knew he really knew my real name.

He thought he was just joking with me, and I guess he was waiting for the day I'd laugh about it with him.

The truth was, I hated his ******* guts for doing this to me. Finally, one day when we were not near anyone else and he started his "joke", I told him I hated him.
