Julian has discovered the ancient art of the "knock-knock" joke.  Truly a joyful moment in every parent's life.  Most of the time the jokes he puts together make absolutely no sense whatsoever.  He has, however, recently found a gem:

Who's there?
Cargo who?
Cargo beep beep!

We went to a 4th birthday party for his friend Matteo last weekend and I watched him literally work the room with this joke.  Unfortunately Nora (who doesn't quite understand nor appreciate the true artistry that is the well-timed-delivery-set-up of the knock-knock joke) has gotten in on the action.  This is how it has been playing out:

Julian:  "Knock-knock."
Nora:  "BEEP BEEP!"

It usually ends in tears.

Little NooNoo, the spoiler of the punchline. We will have to get her her own joke so that little Rodney Dangerfield can have the limelight to himself.

Love it! I remember the first joke I learned was a knock knock joke. Knock knock - who's there - doctor - doctor who - you just said it!!

That one kept me chuckling for at least a year! In fact, just typing it now has set me off.
