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!"

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
