a day for knock knock jokes
Knock Jokes have been around for many years. The earliest knock jokes include:
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.
It was in the mid 1930's that the knock knock joke gained popularity. It was The Rowan & Martin's Laugh in Show that appeared in the late 1960's - 1970's that helped bring even more popularity to the knock knock joke.
