Children Jokes

So You Want To Be A Parent... 

Lesson 1
Go to the supermarket.
Arrange to have your salary paid directly to their head office.
Go home.
Pick up the paper.
Read it for the last time.

Lesson 2
Before you finally go ahead and have children, find a couple who
already are parents and berate them about their...
1. Methods of discipline.
2. Lack of patience.
3. Appallingly low tolerance levels.
4. Allowing their children to run wild.
Suggest ways in which they might improve their child's sleeping
habits, toilet training, table manners and overall behavior. Enjoy it.
It will be the last time in your life that you will have all the answers.

Lesson 3
To discover how the nights will feel...
1. Walk around the living room from 5PM to 10PM carrying a wet bag
weighing approximately 8-12 pounds, with a radio turned to static (or
some other obnoxious sound) playing loudly.
2. At 10PM, put the bag down, set the alarm for midnight, and go 
to sleep.
3. Get up at 12 and walk around the living room again, with the
bag, until 1AM.
4. Set the alarm for 3 AM.
5. As you can't get back to sleep, get up at 2AM and make a drink.
6. Go to bed at 2:45AM.
7. Get up at 3AM when the alarm goes off.
8. Sing songs in the dark until 4AM.

Lesson 5
Dressing small children is not as easy as it seems.
1. Buy an octopus and a small bag made out of loose mesh.

arms hang out. Time allowed for this-all morning.

Lesson 6

of Cocoa Puffs. Make an exact replica of the Eiffel Tower.

Lesson 7
Forget the BMW and buy a station wagon. And don't think that you can

Lesson 9
Repeat everything at least, if not more than, five times.

Lesson 10
Go to the local supermarket. Take with you the nearest thing you can
find to a preschool child. (A full-grown goat is excellent.) If you
intend to Have more than one child, take more than one goat. Buy your
week's groceries Without letting the goats out of your sight. Pay for
everything the goat eats or destroys. Until you can easily accomplish
this, do not even contemplate Having children.

Start talking to an adult of your choice. Have someone else

important meeting.

4. Attempt to wipe it off with this towel.
5. Do NOT change. You have no time.

Uncle Al's Big Book of FUN!
by Alan Meiss,

  Hey kids! It's your buddy here, Uncle Al, with a big book chock full
of fun stuff that *you* can do! Yes, you can be a BONA FIDE MEMBER of
Uncle Al's FUN CLUB! Just remember, all this fun isn't for everyone,
so let's keep Uncle Al's Club a secret! Don't tell any Big People
about our club, or this Secret Fun Book. If they find it, be sure to
tell them it fell off a truck. Now, if you've read all these secret
instructions, tear out this first page and eat it. Then it's Fun Ahoy
with your Uncle Al!

Fun Projects YOU Can Do!
   Do you like crafts? Do you like making things? Then it's Fun
   Ahoy with these swell projects for Uncle Al Junior Craftsmen!

    1. Cut out all the little green presidents in Daddy's wallet. 
       Now glue them to the wall. Then take a big marker and draw 
       mustaches on all the presidents. Don't they look funny?

    2. Do you like costumes? Want to dress up as your very own 
       Super Hero? Well here's what to do! First you'll need a 
       cape, and curtains are great for capes. If you pull on 
       them hard enough, they'll come down. Of course, just a 
       cape isn't nearly enough, you need to look Really Super. 
       Take a bottle of glue, pour it on your head, and smear 
       it around, just like shampoo. Now take a big tube of 
       glitter, and pour that on your head, too. Be sure to 
       smear it around! Now find the biggest marker you can 
       (the big black ones that say PERMANENT are best!) and 
       draw cool tattoos all over yourself! Be sure to write 
       naughty words on your face, like KISS MY BUTT on each 
       of your cheeks. Now you're a SUPER Hero! Won't Mommy 
       and Daddy be impressed!

    3. Record burps on Mommy and Daddy's tapes. Be sure to stick 
       some gum in the little hole on the top of the cassette so 
       they'll still record! Take the ones you don't like upstairs, 
       hold on to just the little ribbon on each one, and throw the 
       case out the window. Whizzzzzzzzz! Isn't that fun!

    4. Hide the neighbors' kitty and make a ransom note with letters 
       cut out of your school books.

    5. Find Daddy's razor in the bathroom and shave the dog. Can you 
       even spell out words?

    6. Be an artist! Wouldn't it be fun to paint? Try painting funny
       messages on Mommy and Daddy's cars, like PICK MY BOOGERS or
       POLICE. Then try painting funny faces on the neighbors' 
       windows! Use lots of different colors.

   neighbors' doors and ask for money. Be sure to tell them that 
   you had to sell your toys for food, and that you're cold from 
   sleeping in the car. Maybe they'll even give you cookies! But 
   if this doesn't work, why not try a Big Garage Sale? While 
   Mommy and Daddy are at work, take everything you can find 
   outside and put it on the driveway. Put little price stickers

"Marriage is when you get to keep your girl and don't have to 
give her back to her parents."  --Eric, Age 6

"When somebody's been dating for a while, the boy might propose 
to the girl.  He says to her, 'I'll take you for a whole life, 
or at least until we have kids and get divorced, but you got to 
do one particular thing for me.'"  Then she says yes, but she's 
wondering what the thing is and whether it's naughty or not.  
She can't wait to find out."  --Anita, Age 9


"You flip a nickel, and heads means you stay with him and tails 
means you try the next one."  --Kally, Age 9

"My mother says to look for a man who is kind.... That's what 
I'll do.... I'll find somebody who's kinda tall and handsome."
  --Carolyn, Age 8

"You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff.  Like if you like
sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep
the chips and dip coming."   Allan, age 10

"No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to
marry. God decides it all way before, and you got to find out later
who you're stuck with."   Kirsten, age 10


"Eighty-four.  Because at that age, you don't have to work anymore, 
and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom." 
--Carolyn, Age 8

"Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife."  
--Bert, Age 5

"Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by
then!"					Cam, age 10

"No age is good to get married at.... You got to be a fool to get
married!" 				Freddie, age 6


"They were at a dance party at a friend's house.  Then they went 
for a drive, but their car broke down.  It was a good thing, 
because it gave them a chance to find out about their values."
  --Lottie, Age 9

"My father was doing some strange chores for my mother.  They 
won't tell me what kind."  --Jeremy, Age 8


"On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that 
usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date."
  --Martin, Age 10

"Many daters just eat pork chops and french fries and talk about 
love." --Craig, Age 9

"Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know
each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long
enough."  Lynnette, age 8


"You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough 
bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, 'cause 
she'll want to have videos of the wedding."  
--Allan, Age 10

handsome boy, but just for a few hours."  -Kally, Age 9

"When they're rich." - Pam, age 7

"It's never okay to kiss a boy.  They always slobber all 
over you...That's  why I stopped doing it." - Tammy, age 10

it's a new person, you have to ask permission." - Roger, age 6

"The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to 
mess with that."  Curt, age 7
"The rule goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should
marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do."
 Howard, age 8


"You should ask the people who read Cosmopolitan."  
--Kirsten, Age 10

"It's better for girls to be single, but not for boys.  
Boys need somebody to clean up after them."  
--Anita, Age 9

"It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm 
just a kid. I don't need that kind of trouble."  
--Will, Age 7

"Single is better, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want 
to change no diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I'd 
just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee 
and diaper changing."   Kirsten, age 10


"One of the people has freckles and so he finds somebody 
else who has freckles too." - Andrew, age 6

"No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something 
to do with how you smell ... That's why perfume and deodorant 
are so popular." - Mae, age 9

something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so 
painful." - Manuel, age 8

they paid good money for them." - Gavin, age 8

walk down the aisle someday and do the holy matchimony 
thing." - John, age 9

the girls keep finding me."  Dave, age 8

  "I'm not rushing into being in love.  I'm finding the 
fourth grade hard enough."  Regina, age 10

they just broke up."  Sarah, age 9

  "See if the man has lipstick on his face."  Sandra, age 7

fire.  They like to order those because it's just like how

Eddie, age 6

the same kids."				Derrick, age 8


"Both don't want no more kids."		Lori, age 8

the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the 
dead columns."                          Craig, age 9

  When I stopped the bus to pick up Chris for preschool, I noticed 
an older woman hugging him as he left his house.
  "Is that your grandmother?", I asked.
  "Yes," Chris said. "She's come to visit for a few weeks.
  "How nice," I said. "Where does she live?"
  "At the airport," Chris replied. "Whenever we want her we just go 
there and get her."



Dear God,
  In school they told us what You do.  Who does it when you are on

Dear God,
  Are you really invisible or is that just a trick?

Dear God,
  Is it true my father won't get in heaven if he uses his bowling
words in the house?

Dear God,
  Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?

Dear God,
  Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones,
why don't you just keep the ones You have now?

Dear God,
  Who draws the lines around the countries?

Dear God,
  I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church.
Is that okay?

Dear God,
  What does it mean You are a Jealous God?  I thought you had

Dear God,
  Did you really mean "do unto others as they do unto you?"
Because if you did, then I'm going to fix my brother!

Dear God,
  Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.

Dear God,
  It rained for our whole vacation and is my father mad!  He said
some things about you that people are not supposed to say, but
I hope you will not hurt him anyway.
        Your friend

Dear God,
  Why is Sunday school on Sunday? I thought it was supposed to be
our day of rest.
        Tom L.

Dear God,
  Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before, you can
look it up.

Dear God,
  If you give me a genie lamp like Aladin, I will give you
anything you want except my money or my chess set.

Dear God,
  My brother is a rat.  You should give him a tail.  Ha ha.

Dear God,
  Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had
their own rooms.  It works with my brother.

Dear God,
  I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big but not with so
much hair all over.

Dear God,
  I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions.
        Ruth M.

Dear God,
  I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the
whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can
never do it.

Dear God,
  If You watch me in church Sunday, I'll show You my new shoes.
        Mickey D.

Dear God,
  I would like to live 900 years like the guy in the Bible.
        Love, Chris

        Sincerely, Donna

  One summer evening, during a violent thunderstorm, a mother was 
tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light 
when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep 
with me tonight?"
  The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," 
she said, "I have to sleep with Daddy."
  A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice saying, 
"The big sissy."

  "Ever notice how a 4-year-old's voice is louder than 200 adult voices?
 "Several years ago, I returned home from a trip just when a storm hit, 
with crashing thunder and severe lightning.  As I came into my bedroom 
about 2 a.m., I found my two children in bed with my wife, Karen, 
apparently scared by the loud storm. I resigned myself to sleeping in 
the guest bedroom that night.
  "The next day, I talked to the children, and explained that it was O.K.
to sleep with Mom when the storm was bad, but when I was expected home,
please don't sleep with Mom that night.
They said O.K.
  "After my next trip, several weeks later, Karen and the children were 
to pick me up in the terminal on my arrival.  Since the plane was late, 
everyone had come into the terminal to wait for my plane's arrival.
Along with hundreds of other folks waiting for other arriving passengers.
  "As I entered the waiting area, my son saw me, and came running, 
shouting, 'Hi, Dad!  I've got some good news!'
  "As I waved back, I said loudly, 'What's the good news?'
  "'The good news is that nobody slept with Mommy while you were away 
this time!' Alex shouted.
  "The airport became very quiet, as everyone in the waiting area 
looked at Alex, then turned to me, and then searched the rest of 
the area to see if they could figure out exactly who his Mom was."
