That’s Punny

15 Oct

“What does a duck eat in his soup?” I ask.

“Quackers,” Mister delivers the punch line. A sympathetic laugher, he giggles with his audience. Then we continue our routine.


“What does a mallard use to keep a nest together?”

“Duck tape.”


“What does a squirrel say in the car?”

“You’re driving me nuts!”


“What does a cow say when something is in her way?”


By the end, the audience’s laughter is less geniune, but Mister is laughing and jumping up and down. He’s so punny.


The kid’s got a good sense of humor. A little corny, but good. He gets that from his parents. And grandparents. And great grandparents. Okay, he comes from a long line of word players. This week, let’s have a little fun. Please share some of your favorite puns or kid jokes in the comments!

    And of course…
    What do you call a three-legged donkey?
    A wonkey.
    Where does a wonkey live?
    In an unstable?

    Or my all-time favourite: what do you play with a wombat?
