HandmadeMN Fun Friday Finds ~ Knock, Knock

by Mollie

Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Rufus who?
Rufus the most important part of your house.

Based on a children's game, the knock-knock joke made it's way into the mainstream in the early 1930's. They were well-known and widely used through the 60's until they fell somewhat off the planet, according to the Knock-knock Joke Wikipedia page.

They made a come-back when they were used regularly on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.

I grew up with knock, knock jokes and unfortunately cannot for the life of me remember too many. My good ol' standby is the one where you say "Orange", because you can change the answer based on what is going on at the moment.

And at the moment, I am glad it's Friday. Today's treasury is loaded with many wonderful items in honor of the color orange. Seemed like a good fit for the season.

What are some of your favorite knock, knock jokes? I could use a refresher or some new material for the kids!
