Kids' Jokes for Foolio: Halloween Edition

Well, I've had a pretty busy day (and it's not over yet). This morning, Dad's Garage had their Halloween edition of Uncle Grampa's Hoo-Dilly Storytime, with many of the kids coming in costume...including an awesome "Bride of Foolio" outfit worn by Allie, one of our most reliable regular patrons.

As usual, the kids brought their own jokes to outdo Foolio:

"Why was the castle free?"
"Because it was a candle!"

"Why did Luigi go to school?"
"Because he had pizzeria!" (a misremembering of one of last month's jokes)

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"
"Because he wanted to go to sleep!"

"Why did the jump rope cross the road?"
"To get to the other slide!"

"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Who who?"
"I didn't know you were an owl!"

"What do you call a flying skunk?"
"A stink-copter!"

"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Ouch who?"

"What do you call a bee who buzzes all around?"

"Where does Darth Vader go to the mall?"
"Darth Mall!"

"Why did the eyeball fly?"
"To get to the other eyeball store!"

"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Chicken who?"
"Chicken got run over by a car!"

"Why weren't the pirate kids allowed in the movie theater?"
"Because it was rated Arrrr!"

"What's a pirate's favorite letter?"

But Uncle Grampa wasn't the end of the Halloween festivities...from there, I went to the Plaza Theater for the matinee Silver Scream Spook Show, a monthly event showcasing classic B-movie fare (this month's offering: the legendary "Plan 9 from Outer Space") preceded by live entertainment by Professor Morte, Retch, and the rest of Morte's gang. There were a number of kids who came in costume...including the Bride of Foolio once again! Great fun for all. (One of my favorite parts: A dance number to a song that went "You're the coolest monster that ever spooked me out." Wish I knew who sang it...Google didn't help.)

And now, on to CB South for some Halloween karaoke...
