knock knock jokes while going door to door. And the day is for jokesters of all ages, too.

A little history of the Knock Knock Joke:

1929: The game of Buff – A child with a stick thumps it on the ground using the following dialogue:

Knock Knock

Who’s There:

Buff

What says, Buff:

Buff says Buff to all his men, and I say Buff to you again.

1934: The standard knock-knock joke format was used in a newspaper humor column:

Knock Knock

Who’s There? Rufus

Rufus Who?

Rufus the most important part of your house.

1936: Likely the beginning of popularity for knock-knock jokes.

Knock-knock jokes became a regular part of the Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-in Show in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

At a very young age, children often learn to tell knock-knock jokes as one of their first types of jokes. They also like making up knock-knock jokes to tell their family and friends. What’s your favorite knock-knock joke?
