My kids love telling jokes. Or at least their versions of them.

I remember years ago when we lived in Scotland, Kaya telling a room full of people, "knock knock"
"who's there?" we replied.
"I stepped on a rainbow!"
And that was it. We all laughed.

In the car the other day Kaya and Lana were telling jokes again. Kaya's starting to get the hang of it now. Here are a couple I can remember:

Q. What do you get when you leave a sick cat out in the cold?
A. A catsickle

Q. What did the tree say when the cat climbed up it?
A. Nothing, it's a tree!

Lana still doesn't quite get it. Her attempt went like this:

"knock knock"
"who's there?"
"kitten who"
"kitten mattin. Mattin means the kitten jumped up on the towel in the bathroom with it's paws!"
And then she erupts into laughter.

She did have one sweet joke though:
Q. What did the heart say to the brain?
A. I love you brain.

How sweet is that?

And Zoe had a go too. She starts yelling from the back seat,
"KNOCK KNOCK!!!!!!!"
"who's there?"
"ah boo boo who?"
"BOO BOO BOO BOO!!!!!!!!!!!"

LOL! They sounds a lot like my kids :) The punch-lines always crack me up, although they rarely make sense.

I was wondering what kind of bunnies you have? We raise Lionheads.

When my brother was little his favorite joke was;

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"

"I don't know, why?"


(*hysterical laughter*)

I just had to reply to your comment on my blog! Don't feel responsible AT ALL about those baby bunnies. It's heartbreaking, I know. It sounds like this was the bun's first pregnancy --- which means that those babies shouldn't have even lived as long as they did. It sounds harsh and it is SO very sad, but first pregnancies in rabbits almost never are successful past the first couple days after birth. The way she treated her babies means that she has good mothering instincts, and is probably a very sweet bunny, but the babies were the first try, and any rabbit breeder would tell you that it would have happened no matter what you did or didn't do.

I understand your heartache though. When I realized we'd lost our first litter, I cried and cried. (((hugs)))
