Happy National Knock Knock Joke Day

“Knock knock!
“Who’s there?”
“Boo!”
“Boo Who?”
“Don’t cry. It’s just me!”

That’s my favorite knock knock joke, and it fits the season, but there are soooooooo many not-so-funny knock knock jokes that are almost like rites of passage!

There is no official history of who or how the knock knock joke started. Some credit William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, written around 1606. Others claim the origins came from a Henry Bett 1929 book, The Games of Children: Their Origin and History. The author refers to a knock knock joke as a kid’s game called “Buff.” In 1934, a newspaper columnist first published this joke in a newspaper:

Knock knock.
Who’s there?
Rufus.
Rufus who?
Rufus the most important part of your house.
