The Death Of The Knock-Knock Joke!

Fellow blogger and close friend, Scorpria, just killed the “Knock-Knock” joke!

For centuries, the Knock-Knock jokes have enthralled us and held us captive in their charm and wit and charisma, and total disregard for pronunciation, punctuation and common sense! They have never failed to bring a smile to our faces and laugh at our own ignorance! Now, the Knock-Knock joke is no more! There is evenΒ  a Wikipedia page dedicated to this great joke!

This was the conversation, verbatim, that occured on the 18th of July, at 4.59 pm.

Me: Hey Scorpria, mind if I tell you a great Knock-Knock joke?

Scorpria: Oh, not at all! I love them!

Me: Knock! Knock!

Scorpria: Come in!Β  πŸ˜€


Doctors, please note the hour of death. Obituaries are called for, and may be deposited in the comments section.

Due to the gruesomeness of the murder, I also call for a discussion to decide the most appropriate punishment for Scorpria. Such murderers cannot be allowed to walk the streets scott-free! Also, please be noted that a motion has been passed to officially christen July 18th as the “Knock-Knock Day,” in loving memory.

Rest In Peace!

  1. Motion carried… Murderer! Now what will people do for nonsensical jokes? πŸ˜€

    In memory of all the great knock-knock jokes, I dedicate this one to all the nonsense created by them. πŸ˜›

  10. @ Nikhil:

    The mosquito jokes are old. But my friend’s son and I make up and send each other knock-knock jokes on text all the time. We also do terrible meaning very good puns (and my thesis is full of them too – obesity affords countless opportunities e.g. ‘childhood obesity is a growing problem’, ‘pharma co.s see jumbo profits in anti-obesity pills).

    Oh and the child is 8. I always say that jokes require a supremely well-developed lateral intelligence, presence of mind, quick wit and a tongue that can keep up with the brain. πŸ™‚

  11. Ha….. ha…….. ha…

    In vandu smiley kodtiya! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    sumne smiley! πŸ™‚

    πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    So how is it??? Btw, any of you heard of mama jokes or NOT jokes?
    It goes something like this…
    Nikhil and I are partners in crime… NOT!!!

    PS: Many people might not find this funny due to the heavy sarcasm involved.

  17. @Shefaly
