Q: What color is a happy cat?. N) ~5 m/ r; q3 s
A: Purr-ple!' M# L9 @) A/ o% d
. B& q! Q5 H2 Y- N, v! v
Explanation: Cats make two common sounds- they meow and they purr (they can also howl and screech but those sounds are not as common).  Purring is that low, rumble that you can feel on a cat’s neck under its chin.  Purring is a sound that a cat makes when it is happy.

0 ?/ \6 d4 s' {; ^0 S
0 K" F" L3 [2 \8 ]) m: kExplanation: Have you ever seen a teacher wear sunglasses while teaching in a classroom?  I haven’t.  Most people only wear sunglasses when they are outside in the sun.  The light from the sun is so bright that it is good for your eyes to shade them with sunglasses.

Q: What can you catch but not throw?7 V1 ]: @0 a; I1 H
A: A cold!
+ c$ Z8 P3 q0 _: E  T6 R5 z3 v7 i' K/ Q. Z% c
Explanation: Are you familiar with the expression, to catch a cold?  when you catch a cold you get a cold (runny nose, sneezing, maybe coughing, …) from someone else.  Cold sometimes means the opposite of hot but in this joke it refers to getting sick.1 ]- s# S  ?$ A! D$ Y$ n2 I

# l$ n+ N9 b2 i  Z3 ENormally when you catch something, like a ball or a frisbee, you can throw it back to someone.  You can catch a cold but you cannot throw it… although you can pass a cold along to someone else.  So, if you are sick, if you have a cold, please take care of yourself so you do not pass it on to someone else.
, h# W& G1 G6 i" N* K6 j
8 _4 w6 }% g0 q. o. @, b/ bThis joke is funny because it plays with the word catch (catch a ball) and the phrase catch a cold. Stay healthy!

! O9 g, v% T; @, f. K. d6 |2 sExplanation: You already know that bees make honey.  Honeycomb is where honey is stored in the hive.  The honeycomb is made of many hexagons (a 6 sided figure like a snowflake or nuts and bolts) that are made of wax.& `8 g. Q/ l) k& _

8 i) g, _4 [7 M  m+ bA comb is used to make your messy hair neat.  When you run the comb through your hair or pass the comb through your hair you are combing your hair.

7 B4 g, Z9 _4 h1 s" LThis joke is funny because it plays with the words comb and honeycomb.  And obviously, bees do not have hair that needs a comb like people do.  (Bees, though, do have hair.)

Q: Can a kangaroo jump higher than the Empire State Building?0 I) }2 }3 }% R0 a6 e, \! i
A: Of course!  Buildings can’t jump!
4 }# ]2 ~9 H- o5 v% v
( `6 h3 Y2 t& V* R( k: ^6 aExplanation: Kangaroos are well known for being able to jump high and far with their powerful legs.  Buildings, on the other hand, cannot jump.: D1 L% n9 }+ P" [
1 ]2 [" W9 F+ O; X7 q! [: x
This joke is funny because the expected answer is that no, kangaroos cannot jump higher than the Empire State Building (they can only jump about 30 feet).  Everyone knows that buildings cannot jump. Because we know that buildings cannot jump, we are thinking about the kangaroo jumping as high as the 1,250 foot Empire State Building. Clearly impossible!
7 M. L8 L( ~8 Q5 d1 {7 m& z5 `) k# Q* F7 S3 H
What if we replaced the Empire State Building with a frog so the question reads, “Can a kangaroo jump higher than a frog?”  Now we know that we are comparing who can jump higher.  It all depends on how you understand the question and what the kangaroo is compared to.  Logic says the answer to the question is no but the joke looks at the illogical and we laugh.

Ah, the beauty of a knock knock joke and Alpine music.  Yodeling is a type of singing where the singer changes the voice from falsetto singing (high singing like the Bee Gees) to normal singing and back again.  It is commonly associated with the Alps of Europe but is also found in other cultures.5 K* \; Y: t5 }

Q: Why did the boy run around his bed?
  n1 e4 B2 _' T/ R4 \A: Because he was trying to catch up on his sleep!
2 D+ I/ X$ Q: T3 Q& w7 u5 _, c2 L, i* I3 h: }
Explanation: To catch up on something (such as sleep) is to do something you have not had time to do.  You catch up on sleep by sleeping more after a time of little sleep.  You can also catch up on the latest news by reading/ watching today’s news (or the newest tweets on Twitter, for example).  Someone might say, “When I returned from vacation I had to catch up on the news/ my emails/ my homework …
( ^+ H! d3 E" u" O
4 V4 E& U9 Q- h' V* r  J& ZTo catch someone is to chase after that person until you can touch him or her.  You might catch someone in a race; a police officer might catch a criminal.  (You can also catch a ball but that is a different meaning).

Q: How do you keep an elephant from charging?
7 P+ S1 }7 r4 D+ j$ Q7 l$ QA: Take away its credit cards!' p5 K4 H6 S$ x5 u1 R0 N$ R
( n5 A' u2 i# P# P9 G
Explanation: When an elephant runs towards you or something else, we say the elephant is charging, much like a bull might charge (run) at the cape of a matador.  To charge is also to pay for something by credit card. The beginning of the joke makes us think of how to stop an elephant from running at something- very difficult to do!8 z- G' ]4 B1 z  J" i

: p3 w# {1 B+ j9 XThis joke is funny because it plays with the two of the meanings of the word charge: a way of moving forward and using a credit card.5 m% A4 a  I6 Y$ V2 ?2 `
8 p9 r6 g6 c8 N
The word charge has many other meanings, such as charging your phone or to accuse someone of doing something wrong.

# t4 Q& |4 J# e! P9 Q, v: e+ o
" K$ \& M# {9 U6 P+ w7 D& MThis joke is funny because two thirty (2:30) sounds the same as tooth hurty.  You’re right, ‘hurty’ is not a real word.  A child might use the word ‘hurty’ or ‘owie’ or ‘boo boo’ to say that something hurts: “I have a tooth hurty.”  It’s not common but it happens.  If your tooth really hurts it is time to go to the dentist no matter the hour of the day.

: What do you call a cow with no legs?
# \3 j! @2 u/ OA: Ground Beef!
+ H" w# U: y9 X* b' K4 `( ?, `; h7 v: Z$ Q2 p0 j# s
Explanation: Beef is a type of meat that comes from cows, cattle. When this meat is put through a grinder it is called ground beef.  Ground beef is the type of meat that is found in hamburgers and other dishes.
, d6 x; c% \" ?" }8 c$ ~& F& E! I; B" l- u& M& y3 u0 ^+ ~7 w  c3 O
This joke is funny because it plays with the word ground.  Ground is the land you stand on when you are outside.  Ground is also the past tense of the verb grind, to reduce something to small particles., l1 v2 y* G7 c5 |" y  H
0 R( J, f7 _( a2 g' k
If a cow has no legs it would be on the ground, therefore, ground beef.

2 j" \8 ^& D; S  T2 Y6 KA: Because he was a little chicken!7 g$ x& t# m4 c6 S0 `" O) X/ p

+ E6 o; d2 {  v8 L3 t: oExplanation:    An egg will soon become a chicken so you could say that an egg is a little chicken, a small chicken (OK, I know that an egg is not a chicken, not yet anyway, but that idea helps make this joke funny).. |1 B9 y/ J# s- r
: y5 G8 _7 x, ~/ H1 e$ y
“To be chicken” means to be scared: He’s too chicken to go down the slide = he’s too scared or too afraid to go down the slide.  Sometimes people hide when they are scared like in this scene from the movie Jurassic Park.8 a9 M: j0 S; F% P( `1 l

Explanation: Bugs are insects.  A knight (sounds like night) is a soldier for a king or queen.  They often wore armor or a coat of mail and rode on horses.  In stories, knights sometimes fight dragons.5 M; z' p; R0 J9 w& u

Q: What’s the difference between a teacher and a train??
8 i' m( L. b/ h' J; Y4 jA: A teacher says, “Spit out that gum!” and a train says, “Chew! Chew!”) }0 B. ?, W/ u) a; Y; ~% o( ?

# M, O% E9 c  r, L: `' j- ]Explanation: Or perhaps the train says, “Choo, choo?!?”- P' Z9 ~! A1 d2 [9 z/ B8 a

6 [# f5 ~( \9 lIn most schools gum is not allowed.  If a teacher sees you chewing gum he or she will ask you to spit it out (even though there are some researched benefits of chewing gum).

Another name for a train is a choo choo and that sounds the same as chew- chew, probably because of the sound of the train whistle.$ R5 J$ ]9 r8 ?1 m

This joke is funny because it plays with the words “choo choo” and “chew, chew.”

Q: What tool can you use to cut water?% Q" B. [% t/ a, |
A: A sea-saw!3 I+ q# K% g  w: ?& h) H
! ]6 `! g$ j$ k7 n
Explanation: To understand this joke you must first know what a seesaw is.  A seesaw is a toy/ game/ ride that you might see on a playground where children play (it is also known as a teeter-totter).  Imagine a long piece of wood that is balanced in the middle; one person sits on each end of the board and as one goes up, the other goes down.# d$ a  f& N( W. O+ w* c; K

4 s# c7 l$ D4 i& YA saw is a tool used to cut things. Of course, you cannot cut water… even with a saw.  This joke is funny because seesaw sounds like sea-saw and both end in “saw,” a tool (saw is the past tense verb of to see).  (Just to be clear: the fools part of the title refers to someone trying to cut water, not the amazing performance below!!)
