"Jonah couldn't trust the ocean because there was something fishy about it" and "Adam told his children that their mother ate them out of house and home" are two examples of Christian jokes. Children often appreciate humor like this more than adults, states Margaret Feinberg.
Christian jokes generally include bible characters and story details, sometimes including a play on words. For example: "When Moses makes his coffee, Hebrews it." This joke is a play on the biblical term "Hebrew" and the English use of "brew" to refer to making coffee. Another example is: "Adam was the fastest runner in the race because he was first." The play on words here is between an athletic race and the first biblical member of the human race.
