dinner hour stand up

My youngest entertained us tonight. I love this age. The funniest part of the routine is the way he breaks into peals of uncontrollable laughter before delivering the punch line. There is nothing better than listening to the laughter of a very amused little child. We usually have to ask him to repeat it two or three times before we can hear the punch line through his laughter.

Some of tonight's jewels:

Why did Luke Skywalker scream? He didn't want pie. (He's 8. He was warming up. And he wrote this one himself.)

Knock knock. Who's there? Pile up. Pile up who? No you're not. Don't be so hard on yourself, buddy. (If you don't get it, say it out loud. This one actually made me laugh.)

What does Mr. Lightning wear under his clothes? Thunderpants.

Why did Tigger put his head in the toilet? He was looking for Pooh.

Who is Peter Pan's worst smelling friend? Stinkerbell. (He finds this one especially funny because it was our daughter's nickname when she was a little one. I'm not kidding.)

What nationality are you when you go to the bathroom? European.

And, his favorite joke of the night:

A woman walks into a pet store and says, "Can I get a puppy for my daughter?" "Sorry, lady, we don't do trades."

Those are too funny. I love little boys' humor. It's so bathroom-oriented. My son also has a wonderfully infectious laugh.

I have a little girl with bathroom-orientated humour too. I love the one about Tigger! Might I use it to tell myself?

ah, i see a theme here.... thunderpants! that's great.
and i can just hear him laugh.

i remember the joke that made me laugh uncontrollably when i was his age, or maybe a little younger:

WIFE: Hubby, i hear a mouse squeak!
HUBBY: what do you want me to do, get up and oil it?

hahahahahahaha try that on your son.

Too funny and what is it about poop that makes boys roll on the ground. In my house the word "fart" is enough to make them wet themselves. Or something.

I had to say the pile up one out loud but when I got it I cracked up.

I love it. I'm still smiling. Please let the little entertainer know that the last one had me LOL.

Marvelous stuff. Funny even without the 8 year old laughter before the punchlines.

WUASTC, their laughs are wonderful, aren't they?

Crystal, you're welcome to each and every one of them. I like the Tigger one a lot, too.

You're right, Laurie, he is a huge Captain Underpants fan. I'll have to try that on him. I bet he'll love it.

RC, I'm not a fart and poo joke kinda girl, but even I thought that pile up joke was funny.

I will tell him he made you laugh, Lady M. I'm sure he'll love it.

Hey, Iota! Yeah, they're pretty cute jokes. I always wonder what he'll come up with next.

Thank you all for stopping by.

I was totally with the jokes, my kids are 10 and 7. What makes it funnier is there hysteria. In our house Michael Bouble (not sure how you spell it) is what has them in hysterics and they insist on repeating it and making sure we get it.

SEM, welcome! It is so nice to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by.
