Driving the children insane.

This is my best recollection of the exchange I had with Madisyn (my daughter's older sister - she's 8) on our way to a birthday party last night. It passes the time, and had my daughter laughing the hardest I've ever seen. Evil humor must run in the family.

Madisyn: Wanna hear a joke?

Chris: Sure.

M: Knock Knock!

C: Knock Knock, who?

M: No! You were supposed to say, "who's there!"

C: HA! that WAS a good joke, Madisyn!

M: THAT WASN'T THE JOKE.

C: Are you sure?

M: YES.

C: If you say so. Try it again.

M: OK, but this time when I say "knock knock", you say "who's there".

C: OK, but this time when I say knock knock, you say who's there, who?

M: CHRIS!

C: Sorry, I don't get it.

M:GRRRR.

M: KNOCK. KNOCK.

C: Who's there?

M: BANANA.

C: HELP! THERE'S A TALKING BANANA TRYING TO GET INTO MY HOUSE! SAVE YOURSELVES!

M: AAAAGH! You're not SUPPOSED to be scared of the banana!

C: You should have told me. If you think about it, that kinda makes it your fault this joke got all messed up.

M: Knock Knock!

C: Who's there?

M: Banana.

C: Hi, Banana! Come one in - the door's unlocked!

M: I am going to kill you.

C: I thought you said I wasn't supposed to be scared of the Banana, Madisyn.

M: Please stop.

C: Okay. Sorry.

M: You promise?

C: Sure.

M: Knock Knock!

C: Who's there?

M: Banana.

C: Banana who?

M: Knock Knock!

C: Who's there?

M: Banana.

C: Banana who?

M: Knock Knock!

C: Who's there?

M: Orange.

C: Hey Orange, if you see Banana out there, tell him I'm gonna kick his ass for knocking on my damn door over and over!

M: CHRIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS!!

C: Oh, look... we're here! Good joke, Madisyn.
