Knock-Knock. Who's There?

A student was asked on a job interview to tell the interviewer what his favorite corny joke was. This flustered the student no end. He vaguely remembered that knock-knock jokes were supposed to be corny, but he couldn't remember the punch line for the "Knock-knock. Who's there? Orange. Orange Who?" sequence. I came home and decided to gather a few corny jokes in case any other student every got this same type of nutsy question.

You have to love the Internet. A check on Google brought up 388,000 hits for knock knock jokes. One of the sites advertises that all its jokes are clean. If you are looking for a groan to lighten up a dreary day, go to If you need just one good groan, I offer the following:

Knock Knock!

Who's there?


Icon who?

Icon tell you another knock knock joke. Do you want me to?

It's like potato chips--you can't tell just one knock knock!

Knock Knock!

Who's there?


Annie who?

Annie thing you can do, I can do better.

Come on, admit it--your vocal chords feel better now that you've groaned a bit.

And from my collection, the following to send you off to sleep having forgotten all your cares and troubles.

Knock Knock Who's there? Carl. Carl who? Car'l get you there faster than a bike.

Knock, Knock Who's there? Sarah. Sarah who? Sa-rah phone I could use?

Knock knock Who's there? Radio. Radio who? Radi-o not, here I come.

Knock, Knock. Who's there? Leaf. Leaf Who? Leaf me alone.

Knock, Knock. Knock, knock Who's there? Isabel. Isabel who? Isabel working? I had to knock twice.
