One funny joke for children is: "What do you call a pig who knows karate? Porkchop!" A funny kids' joke related to sports is: "Why did the golfer wear two pairs of pants? In case he got a hole in one!"
Funny jokes for children include knock-knock jokes, riddles and jokes pertaining to familiar children's topics such as animals, food, holidays and school. A funny knock-knock joke is, "Knock, knock. Who’s there? Noah. Noah who? Noah good place where we can get something to eat?" Like other children's jokes, the joke uses a simple pun that kids can easily understand, replacing "Know a" with "Noah." Some words that joke-tellers can use as puns in knock-knock jokes include "canoe," which sounds like "can you," and the name "Mikey," which substitutes for "my key."
Other types of children's jokes include simple wordplay and mix and match jokes. Wordplay jokes hinge on puns and homophones. A funny wordplay joke for slightly older children is, "Why can’t fishermen be generous? Because their business makes them sell fish." Mix and match jokes starts with the line "What do you get when you cross..." and include two things that normally do not go together, such as a fridge and a stereo, which would make "cool music."
