Do you know a joke?

Billy and Bally need help with their terrible jokes! Do you know any that are better than theirs?
Here are some that Billy and Bally like to get you started:

Billy: Knock! Knock!
Bally: Who’s there?
Billy: Cows go!
Bally: Cows go, who?
Billy: No! Cows go moo!

A man goes to see the doctor and says, “Doctor! Doctor! I think I’m a pair of curtains”
So the doctor says, “Pull yourself together man!”

Why didn’t the skeleton go to the party?
He had no body to go with!

Why did the dinosaur cross the road?
Chickens hadn’t been invented then!

A chicken hops on to a librarian’s desk and says “Book!”
The librarian gives the chicken a book, which it tucks under its wing and leaves.
A little while later the chicken returns with the book, hops onto the desk and says “Book! Book!”
The librarian gives the chicken two books, one under each wing, and it leaves.
A little while later the chicken brings the two books back, hops onto the desk and says “Book! Book! Book!”
The librarian gives the chicken three books, one under each wing and one in its beak, and the chicken leaves. This time the librarian follows the chicken all across town until they come to a pond where there is a frog who takes one look at the books the chicken has brought and says “Redit! Redit! Redit!”

Teacher notes:
Jokes have many different forms and structures – Doctor! Doctor! Knock! Knock! There is often a principle like the “rule of three” (the “rule of three” is a principle in writing that suggests that things that come in threes are inherently funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things – see here for more information),  and English is rich in words with more than one meaning. Puns can confuse, delight and cause us to collectively groan. They can be short stories that have a series of conventions in the telling, and it usually is about telling, an oral tradition that encourages sharing.

Written down perhaps they lose something (see the librarian/chicken joke above!), but they can be used to practice punctuation and direct speech.
