What a joke
Teaching is sometimes fun because of boy or girl, kids humor; family and parenting humor are mostly baby or kid, children jokes: funny kids jokes are often humorous parenting, teaching jokes.
One of the popular school pupils’ jokes is this: "Oh," replied the school kid, asked if he found the semester examinations easy, "the questions were easy, all right; but the answers were so difficult!"
Kids humour is seen, also, in teaching children grammar: It was nearly the end of the school term, and it was obvious to a teacher that one of his young pupils still could not tell the difference between 'went' and 'gone' -she kept saying "I have went home." The teacher asked the girl to stay behind and write fifty times 'I have gone home'. She did, and added a note: "I have written fifty times 'I have gone home' and I have went home."
In teaching and parenting, children interpret and tell! A teacher sent this note to the parents of the children in her class: "If you don't believe everything that your children say that happened in class, then I won't believe everything that they say that happened at home."
Babies know little -most baby jokes are parent humour or wit: Remarked, "Isn't your baby rather small..?" a teenage mother commented, "Well, I have only been married three months..."
Boy humour can indicate a schoolboy's circumstances: "If you had a Dollar in one pocket," asked the school teacher "and two in the other, of your coat," "what would that be..?" A boy answered, "Someone else's coat, Miss…."
Never enough pocket money influences girl humour too: "I knew all the time," said one of the girls to her friends in a science class, "that the Pound coin would not dissolve in that chemical solution…" Asked how she knew, the school girl explained: "Well, if it was going to, the teacher would have used a penny coin, wouldn't he..!?"
Parenting humour has a humorous reality for all mothers: A loved mother becomes a fallen woman when she returns home from shopping without any toys.
Children jokes and family humour often involve mothers: Asked if she said her prayers before she ate, a child replied: "No; my mother's cooking isn't that bad."
Family jokes on kids humour involve fathers on teaching: When asked by his father if he liked his first day at school, a child exclaimed, "You mean I have got to go again, tomorrow!?"
Teaching is often fun with children's funny assumptions: A school kid thought Joan of Arc was Noah's wife.
Teaching and school kids jokes use nouns versus pronouns too: A school kid, when asked by the class teacher who invented the radio, replied: "Macaroni."
Many baby jokes and parenting humour are based on names: A couple's friend, upon being told that the expecting parents were considering naming their baby 'Pat', remarked "Pooh.. every 'Tom, Dick, and Harry' (John and Jane Doe) is called that."
School humour and children jokes use kids' innocence: Asked by his teacher why he was late, a child said that he saw a road sign on the way which read: 'Go Slow!'
Kids are clever, the anecdotes of a hailed teacher (the late Orhan Seyfi Ari) tells of his: He forbade his youngest son, then a child, from going out without asking him for a period of time ~the child cleverly picked his time, whenever his father had a siesta, always with an excuse to justify it, woke him up to ask if he could pop out!
This is so in family humour also, as seen in family jokes: A teacher having asked the class to say a few words about someone who they had made happy, one of the children told about his aunt who he spent the weekend with and when he left was happy.
Parenting humour does not, always, include kids humour: In a university parenting research project to get academic data on how many parents knew where their children were, many of the telephone calls were answered by children who did not know where their parents were.
In kid jokes children's vocabulary adds to kids humour: After teaching about the dark ages, and having told children of the many knights they had then, a teacher tested the class by asking why the dark ages were called so -a child answered: "Because they had many nights."
Word meanings can be used, as in this university humour: "I am taking medicine at university," said the student; his friend asked, "Is it doing you any good?"
Wordplay can be less direct, as in this college humour: Student humour defines 'college' with wit, as a fountain of knowledge where one quenches one's thirst.
College jokes can be rather harsh also on teaching staff: The difference between good and bad lecturers is a nap.
Unlike college jokes, school jokes treat teachers gently: When a member of the teaching staff announced that she was going to marry the school caretaker, the head teacher remarked to other teachers: "He swept her off her feet..."
School jokes sometimes are about schools themselves: A humorous traffic sign put up by a school was this: 'Use your eyes! Save the pupils!'
In parenting humour and kid jokes children are innocent: A school kid proudly showed his parents a gold star his teacher gave him -asked what it was for he explained that they all had to rest, and he rested best.
University humour allows ridicule as do high school and college humor: In a law school mock trial the student asked: "When you walked into the bar, did you clearly see Mr. A and Mr. B, together?"; and, answered affirmatively, continued: "And, where were you, at the time?"
In kids jokes, be it boy humour or girl humour, children are never stupid; in parenting, are cute: A bad report of a kid from his teacher upset his parents; "Why am I so?" asked the kid, "Is it my environment or is it hereditary?"
