18 Dumb Jokes You Definitely Told In Elementary School

1. "Spell I Cup"

Always a classic, your fellow second-graders never saw it coming.

2. "Say Lettuce and spell Cup"

Basically the same as the "I Cup" joke but with a new twist that would fool all your friends again!

3. "Why did the chicken cross the Road?"

"To get to the other side."

"To get away from you."

"To prove he wasn't a chicken."

This one had endless possibilities and as long as you could make up new answers, the chicken joke never got old.

4. "Knock knock"

"Who's there?"

"I eat mop."

"I eat mop who?"

Cue endless laughter because poop-based jokes always killed in elementary school.

(For those of you too mature for this joke: "Mop who" sounds a lot like "my poo.")

5. "Bend over and spell run"

If the other kids didn't learn from the 'I Cup' incident, they were sure to fall for this one too. However, this was a more mature kind of joke. One only the fourth and fifth graders could pretend they understood.

6. "Your Mom"

This response was always perfect for any occasion. Whether someone asks you what you did over the weekend, or even if you did your homework, this response guaranteed a laugh even if it didn't completely make sense.

7. "Why is 6 afraid of 7?"

"Because 7 ate 9!"

Sure, this one has been told way too many times, but back in the day this was hilarious!

8. "I have a Knock knock joke but you have to start it."

"Ok. Knock knock."

"Who's there?"

".....?" -Your confused and silent friend.

One of the easiest jokes you can tell because it requires little effort from you. But the longer you kept a straight face at the end, the funnier the joke became.

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


Or, for those elementary school students looking for a more intellectual answer: "Sea."

10. "Why do hippos wear red nail polish?"

"To hide in cherry trees."

Your classmate that doubts you: "That makes no sense."

"Have you ever seen a hippo hiding in a cherry tree? No? The nail polish must be working then."

It always felt good proving your friends wrong when they doubted your rock solid facts about hippo habits.

11. "Knock knock."

"Who's there?"


(Repeat 3 times)

"Knock knock."

"Who's there?!"


"Orange who?"

"Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"

Even though this joke took forever, the end result was worth it. Plus you loved to see all your friends get annoyed with the repeating banana joke.

12. "My dog has no nose."

"How does it smell?"


This worked with whatever pet you may have had as a child. Or if you didn't have a pet, you could always say it was a friend who had no nose. In fact, that was even better.

13. "How do you sell a duck to a deaf man?"


This was an outside joke because if you screamed at the top of your lungs inside, your teacher would have definitely put you in time out.

14. "Why did the old lady fall into a well?"

"She didn't see that well."

This one was best if the punch line was delivered without laughing, which was always difficult when you knew your joke was absolute gold.

15. "What do you call a fish with no eyes?"


You saved this joke for those who confidently knew how to spell. Sorry kindergarteners, this joke is too sophisticated.

16. "Why did the idiot get fired from the M&M Factory?

"Because he kept throwing away all the W's."

Again, the kindergarteners had to be excluded from this joke because not all of them knew all of the letters in the alphabet yet.

17. "What's brown and sticky?"

"A stick."

Simple and to the point. You were definitely on the fast track to becoming the class comedian.

18. "Knock knock."

"Who's there?"

"Little old lady."

"Little old lady who?"

"It's just a joke! No need to yodel about it!"

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
