Cousin Confession

This morning as was listening to my kids tell each other knock-knock jokes that don't make sense, I remembered a family reunion that I went to as a child a long time ago. It was held at Gran's home (A-frame house, I think) and one of the adults told all the kids that we would be able to share a joke at the family gathering that afternoon. I didn't know any jokes, but fortunately I passed by a room where Candice was telling some other cousins a joke she was planning on doing. I still remember it. It went like this:

Knock knock
Who's there?
Banana.
Knock knock
Who's there?
Banana.
Knock knock
Who's there?
Orange.
Orange who?
Orange you glad I stopped saying banana?

I thought the joke was the most hilarious thing I'd ever heard. So when it was my turn to tell a joke at the reunion, that is the one I told. They must have started youngest to oldest or something, because I got to go before Candice and I totally got the scoop on her.

I just wanted to tell you, Candice that I am sorry, and I hope you forgive me. I will never copy one of your knock knock jokes again.

  3. You realize Candice didn't make that up herself, either, right? She's a joke stealer, too.

  4. Donovan use to make up jokes and laugh at them. They made no sense. That was the funny part.

  8. I am here! I do not know how I could have missed this post! At our last reunion, they said that, "Bagleys get along" but in truth, "Bagleys block bad experiences". I had successfully blocked this traumatic event from my mind, and thank you, Chelsea for reopening the wound.

    Just kidding. In truth, you probably told it better than me, and I have some really excellent Pollock jokes in my arsenal. Hopefully I told the one about the Pollock and the car door in the desert. That is my favorite.

  9. Since when did Candice start telling Jackson Pollock jokes? I don't think his paintings are very.....hey wait a minute...."Orange you glad"....that is hilarious! Good show, Chelsea.

    Candice tells some good jokes. She has a great one about a small dog and a fireplace.
