  • Knock, knock.

  • Who's there?

  • Orange.

  • Orange?

  • Who are you going to teach me?

  • English.

  • So the joke here is that the word orange sounds like, Aren't you so orange?

  • Ooh, sounds a little bit like Orent.

  • You going to teach me English?

  • That's the joke, you orange.

  • Who brings you going to teach me English?

  • Knock knock jokes.

  • Hi, everyone.

  • How's it going?

  • I'm Alicia.

  • Have you heard of knock knock jokes?

  • These jokes follow a question and answer pattern and always end with a funny pun.

  • It starts with one person saying, Knock, knock and the other person asks Who's there?

  • The first person gives a name.

  • After that, the second person asks for the surname.

  • In response, the surname typically turns the first name into a play on words or a pun.

  • Please note, though, that knock knock jokes don't always need to use first names.

  • Often, there are jokes that use common words or announce that end up turning into another punt.

  • They're pretty easy and fun, so let's check out some more.

  • Knock, knock.

  • Who's there?

  • Alicia.

  • Alicia who?

  • I need Alicia to take my dog for a walk.

  • This is a pun on my name.

  • Alicia.

  • The leash in Alicia sounds like the word leash, which we use.

  • It's like a chain or rope.

  • You put around a dog or maybe a cat's neck, uh, to take them for a walk in your neighborhood.

  • So in this case, I need Alicia.

  • Sounds like I need a leash to take my dog for a walk.

  • The grammar isn't necessarily correct.

  • Like I need Alecia.

  • Sounds like a leash, huh?

  • Ah, it's It's not 100% perfect.

  • When you emphasize with your voice the keyword that sounds like the other word in this case leash in Alicia.

  • That's what makes the joke.

  • Or that's what creates the pun, the wordplay.

  • So it's not.

  • I need a leash to take my dog for a walk, which would be the correct sentence, but I need Alicia to take my dog for a walk.

  • So making my name into the joke is what creates some kind of like Interesting point, something funny about it.

  • Knock, knock.

  • Who's there?

  • Dwayne?

  • Dwayne who?

  • Dwayne The sink.

  • It's leaking.

  • Okay, so what is the deal with this joke?

  • Why is this joke supposed to be funny, Dwayne.

  • In this case, we use Dwayne the sink.

  • This is actually a pronunciation joke.

  • The name Dwayne sounds like the word drain the verb drain, meaning to remove liquid from something.

  • So Dwayne sounds like drain with bad pronunciation.

  • The joke.

  • Here, Duane and drain the sink.

  • It's leaking.

  • So this is the word play.

  • Duane is a bad pronunciation of drain.

  • Actually, this is a pronunciation that you might hear little kids use when they're first.

  • Learning to speak like that are sound can be difficult.

  • So I've heard kids say like Wayne instead of rain.

  • Or like maybe drains like this sort of w sound can sometimes be like you can sometimes hear this double.

  • You sound among little kids who are learning English like native native level, I think.

  • Knock, knock.

  • Who's there?

  • Henrietta.

  • Henrietta who?

  • Henrietta Whole pizza.

  • Yesterday that was Dad.

  • I was bad was dead asses.

  • My dad, my dad, Henry had a whole pizza yesterday, All right, what's the deal with this joke?

  • So this joke is is more complicated than perhaps the other knock knock jokes.

  • This joke begins with a feminine name of Girl's name.

  • Henrietta is a girl's name.

  • But when the final line of the joke comes, the word play here is that Henrietta whole pizza.

  • When you put those hold those three words together, we can sort of hear instead of Henrietta has a name.

  • It sounds like Henry.

  • Eight.

  • A whole pizza yesterday.

  • So Henrietta becomes Henry ate a whole pizza yesterday.

  • The noun of Henrietta The name becomes, it's.

  • It sounds like a different phrase in different grammatical phrase when you, when you put it in this sentence, Henry had a whole pizza yesterday.

  • Sounds like Henry ate a whole pizza yesterday.

  • Knock, knock.

  • Who's their canoe?

  • Canoe?

  • Who can you stop telling all these?

  • Knock knock jokes.

  • No, it's OK.

  • It's OK.

  • New.

  • What's the joke with canoe?

  • Canoe is a long boats that you can paddle in a Laker River, but that is used in the sentence.

  • Can you stop telling it?

  • Sounds like Can you stop telling?

  • Can new stop telling the pronunciation sounds similar to Can you stop telling all these knock knock jokes, meaning Please stop.

  • It's enough knock knock jokes, a play with pronunciation and with grammar to make this wordplay.
