Surreal Knock Knock Jokes




Hi there! Welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog with that extra special ingredient: love. (Also spit.) 

I'm Dave-El and yes, I did not post on Wednesday. I know, I know, how do I expect people to not have another installment of DC Comics and Me? The story of my time as a DC Comics reader is riveting stuff to be sure but sometimes I need a break. But it is my threat...er, promise that it will be back next Wednesday, I swear by all that is sacred! 

Unless I have something better to do. 

Or I just don't feel like it. 

Or something.

Today is Thursday and since the beginning of the year, Thursday has been the home of The Adventures of Knock-Knock the Interrupting Cow. Well, as it hard as it is to cope, that feature came to an end last week. 

Well, come on! Who in their right mind would try to make knock-knock jokes...in fact, variations of the SAME knock-knock joke a central part of an ongoing entertainment? Who would want to see such a thing?








But to help ease the transition, today I'm posting some Tweets from my Twitter account of a selection of surreal knock-knock jokes. 

And by "surreal", I mean "not funny". 

And away we go! 
 
 
*Who's there?* 
"Horton hears a" 
*Horton hears a who?* 
"Yeah, that's the title. I can finish my crossword puzzle now! Thanks!"


 
*Who's there?* 
"I'm a mute" 
*I'm a mute who?* 
"I'm a mute who can't speak" 
*How are we having a conversation?* 
"Oh I'm deaf too"

This one is very specific to Twitter.
     
 
*Who's there?* 
"Someone who doesn't follow the 140 character limit" 
*Someone who doesn't follow the 140 character limit who?* 
"S

    
 
*Who's there?* 
"Are You" 
*Are you who?* 
"Man, you don't remember your old college buddy, Are You?" 
*Oh, Are You! Come in*
  
 
*Who's there?* 
"Dominos" 
*Dominos who?* 
"You know the pizza you ordered 30 minutes ago" 
*This knock-knock joke isn't very funny*

   
 
*Who's there?* 
"GET HELP! I'M ON FIRE!" 
*Get help I'm on fire who?* 
 "ARRRGGHHH!" 
*I don't get it. Hey, is that smoke?*
     

 
*Who's there?* 
"It's Dave" 
*Oh, hi Dave, come in" 
"No, you say 'Dave who?" 
*But I know its you Dave!"

      
 
*Who's there?* 
"I'm standing near" 
*I'm standing near who?* 
"No one, I'm alone out here!"

     
 
*Who's there?* 
"I'm your girlfriend" 
*I'm your girlfriend who?* 
"If you can't remember who I am, I'm breaking up with you!"

 
*Who's there?* 
"I'm speaking to" 
*I'm speaking to who?* 
"No, it's I'm speaking to whom."

OK, that's enough of that! Let's go out with a couple of classics! 



In the meantime, be good to one another.
