Sometimes, getting texted a ‘knock knock’ joke just makes us just want to facepalm and ignore the message, but from time to time they can actually get pretty hilarious. Here are some comical screenshots of ‘knock knock’ joke text exchanges.
Hope they’re not allergic
Sometimes, a joke is just so dumb that you can’t help but laugh in disbelief. You’re laughing – but you’re also kind of feeling bad for both the person telling it and the person hearing it. There aren’t a lot of examples for this situation better than this one.
The joke is that “cash who” kind of sounds like “cashew,” as in the nut. Of course, te response is that the joker would rather have a peanut instead. We think the person on the other end summed up our thoughts perfectly – they’re ridiculous.
A joke to break the tension?
Breaking up with someone is never easy, and doing it over text is generally not the way to go. This person, however, decided to diffuse the tension with a classic ‘knock knock’ joke.
The only difference is, the punchline was not too funny for the recipient of this message. Sometimes, a simple phone call can go a long way, but this jokester definitely wins an award for the least awkward and uncomfortable break up text message!
A double whammy
Probably the most notorious joke that has circulated the world has been the classic delivery line of ‘why did the chicken cross the road?’ Almost equal in popularity is the ‘knock knock’ joke instigator.
So, when this funny individual decided to combine these two jokes into one single and unified comical moment, we have to laugh and applaud their efforts! Come on – this delivery is perfect and has flawlessly succeeded in combining the two jokes.
Sometimes a ‘knock knock’ joke is just out of this world! Take this ‘knock knock’ jokester’s delivery. This hilarious individual took the opportunity to perfectly set up and deliver their joke so that the responder almost has no idea what is coming, before hitting them with an iconic Star Wars reference!
This comedian’s flawless ‘knock knock’ instigation and response takes this entire text-message exchange to the next level – we just have to laugh at this texting thread!
She carried you for nine months, you ingrate
Here we have a bit of a case of mistaken identity. This kid thought they were getting a knock-knock joke. Then, they thought they were being thrown a curveball by switching it up to a “your momma” joke. Unfortunately for them, neither of these jokes was on the agenda.
Instead, it was their somewhat irate mom, who was politely wondering why they weren’t answering the door after 30 minutes of her furious banging. Let this be a lesson, kids – it’s all fun and games until mom gets mad.
Daisy me rollin’
For a great ‘knock knock’ joke, you need to think of words that sound similar to the punchline beginning when you read the word aloud, but looks like a completely different word when it is written down. Take this exchange, for example.
The person set up their punch-line ‘quoting the famous lyrics Chamillionare’s rap song, ‘Rollin’,’ by associating the word ‘Daisy’ with the first words of the lyrics: ‘they see.’ Sounds confusing, but once you get the hang of it you can get creative with the ‘knock knock’ jokes!
Some people just don’t deserve it
This poor guy thought that this person was trying to use the ‘knock knock’ line as an opening to introduce herself, mistaking the response of ‘Daisy’ to be the name of the girl messaging him.
Due to this error, she decided that he was not worthy of her ‘knock knock’ joke and responded that he did not deserve to hear the punchline. Hopefully her next target will appreciate her jokes a little more than this guy!
No, you don’t get it…
This guy’s response to a ‘knock knock’ joke attempt just makes us want to facepalm. Have they never heard of a ‘knock knock’ joke before that they have no idea how to respond?!
Maybe they are just pulling a joke back, and is making fun of the first guy who started the joke-making over text message. We hope that that’s the situation, because this entire text message exchange is just embarrassing for Cas – he seems so confused.
Do not try this in Venezuela!
Well, they do say to know your crowd! This girl thought that the guy was trying to tell her his name when he tried to make a ‘knock knock’ joke over text message.
Well, after finding out he was making an attempt at comedy, she let him know that they don’t make ‘knock knock’ jokes in her country of Venezuela! And here we were, mistakenly under the impression that this was a universally recognized joke…
Meanwhile, in Canada
Canada, often better known as America’s hat, is home to some of the nicest people you’re ever likely to meet. There’s really only one problem. Sometimes, just sometimes, all those manners can get in the way of a good knock-knock joke. This is a prime example.
The person telling the joke kicked things off by apologizing straight away (we’re not sure what for). Of course, this only brought on a counter-apology, and the rare counter-counter-apology. We assume they’re still apologizing to one another today.
Okay, can we be honest with you here? We’re not 100% sure what exactly it was that happened in that conversation. We think it started as a knock-knock joke… but we’re frankly not sure. “Who’s there?” isn’t usually followed by “What?”, unless there’s a gag here we haven’t been able to guess.
Nevertheless, the person on the other end seemed to want to play along, only to confuse the original joke teller. Then it turned out that other guy might have been telling the joke all along? Geez, we’re gonna have to go lie down…
Refusing to cooperate
The thing about knock-knock jokes is that to successfully pull it off you need to get the cooperation of the person on the other side. If they decide not to play ball just to spite you, well… That’s game over, man. Game over.
The game was certainly over for this person, who refused to answer the door because he knew who was behind it. We concur – it does seem like they’re being jerks. It really feels like they went out of their way not to cooperate too. We think there are some underlying issues there to work out.
Battle of the search engines
It has been the Battle of the Century: which search engine is more preferable? Yahoo, or Google? Well, this person decided to make a joke of the debate, setting up this individual to ask ‘Yah who?’ in response to their ‘knock knock’ instigation. Y’know – like Yahoo.
Following which, they clarified that they personally prefer to use Google as their search engine of choice. This is a pretty good, if we may say so ourselves! This definitely made us chuckle a little!
How many times has Annie messed up a ‘knock knock’ joke over text message that they need to be given explicit instructions not to do it again! Well, she certainly bested whoever instigated this joke.
When the response to her ‘who’s there’ was ‘FedEx,’ she gave the hilarious reply of: ‘leave it on the doorstep.’ We certainly enjoyed a few laughs over this answer! Not only was her response hilarious, she on upped this person by firing back a better joke!
Knock knock, it’s a pick up line
There are all sorts of ways to express your interest in another person. There’s saying it with a gift, like flowers, or perhaps over a coffee date. This guy, however, got creative in his attempts to show this girl that he was interested in her.
He started off with a simple ‘knock knock’ text, which eventually led to him expressing in the punchline that he likes her! We wish him the best – with such a sense of humor, he definitely deserves it!
Ha ha, blocked!
Well, we have to applaud this person on their comedic spin to blocking someone on the internet! Usually, you usually do not tell someone that is being blocked that they are about to be barred from contacting you further.
However, this individual decided to let the person that they were blocking know what was about to happen to their account: it was being blocked from theirs. This is a pretty gutsy move, although quite hilarious at the same time!
Joke’s on you
This individual has a fondness for ‘knock knock’ jokes… but not to make them – rather, they prefer to be on the receiving end of the joke. They certainly got what they had asked for!
When they attempted to start a conversation around the joke, the person they had messaged came back with an even better joke about how they were not making the joke they had instigated! Well, the joke is on them in the end!
A knock knock proposal
Every girl has some sort of romantic fantasy of how they would like to be proposed to, with some being more elaborate than others. This guy, however, decided to forgo all big gestures and decided to keep it simple… with a ‘knock knock’ joke text message.
Whilst his attempt at proposing may not be the most romantic or elaborate, it certainly does go straight to the point and is pretty hilarious! Hopefully, she’s into funny guys!
It’s the grammar police
Joking around generally does not require good grammar skills, unless you are this grammar police officer, on the prowl for bad grammar to correct! Despite setting this person up for a poorly worded response, as they replied appropriately to the ‘knock knock’ text message sent their way, the person sending the initial message thought it would a great punch line would be a grammatical error correction.
There is a time and place to be an English language snob, and a ‘knock knock’ joke is not it!
Oops, they did it again
This guy has taken to using the popular Britney Spears song irritate their friend with a ‘Knock knock’ joke. After double-texting the ‘Knock knock’ instigating message, they turned to Britney for the punch line.
Of course, we have to applaud this text exchange, as his delivery of the line ‘Oops I did it again’ has been absolutely flawless, setting his friend up to be on the receiving end of this joke. Well, who doesn’t love a little Britney Spears inspired humor?
When this person attempted to pull a similar move to the grammar police prankster in the previous message exchange, his efforts backfired on him!
He himself could not make sense of the situation, setting himself up for this response in which he was called out for not only failing at a joke, but also for failing in his abilities to grammatically correct their friend! Sometimes, you just have to know your own deficiencies before calling other people out on theirs…
Asking your crush out is always daunting, and what better way to lighten the mood than a little comic relief with a ‘knock knock’ joke! This person certainly nailed it, with the whole ‘Gopher’ response, which, when read out loud, sounds a lot like ‘go for.’
Honestly, this individual really thought this out, and the comedic quality is top notch! We certainly found it pretty hilarious – we only hope their crush reciprocates, or at least had a laugh as well!
… But how do you know?
This person tried to make the sweetest ‘knock knock’ joke, letting this girl know what they thought she looked ‘so fine,’ only for this attempt at flirting to backfire completely. All she wanted to know was how they knew what she looked like at that moment!
This is probably a reasonable response – no one likes to feel as though they are being stalked or spied on… their admirer should definitely should get points, though! It was a sweet effort.
Well, here we have a crude but hilarious exchange. This person delivered a perfectly executed ‘knock knock’ line, with the follow up response being ‘Europe poo,’ which was totally unexpected and just straight up so comical.
We really appreciate this sarcastic humor, we just hope the person on the receiving end was equally as amused! Well, if they didn’t, they certainly do not deserve to receive these funny messages – we’ll take them instead, and we would respond with all the laughter that it warrants!
Poor armless Sara is the punchline of this ‘knock knock’ joke, that makes us feel as uncomfortable as it does make us laugh. Our reaction probably matches that of the little cartoon the guy who this joke was made to in this text message exchange responded with.
We don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this, so when in doubt, we’ll choose laughter. The world needs to be a happier and more comical place!
The flirtatious joker
This comical flirt has their tactics down to the tee. First, they begin with a lighthearted ‘knock knock’ text to get the conversation going. Then, they proceed with their follow up of ‘what where,’ to get the response they expect of ‘what where who?’
This leads to the ultimate punchline, where they deliver their ultimate goal of ‘tomorrow, my place, you and me.’ So, the date has been smoothly finalized and they succeed! For some people, flirting is that simple!
Threaten with a joke
When this guy refused to help with the cleaning, with a nonchalant ‘nah I’m good,’ the person on the other side of this texting exchange was not impressed.
After they realized that they were being ignored in their efforts to recruit this guy to help out, they made the ultimate threat: a knock knock joke. Quickly, this guy rose to the challenge, preferring to help out with the laundry, rather than go through the pain of the joke.
This one is for the Harry Potter fans…
What could be a better joke combination than a Harry Potter reference and a corny ‘knock knock’ text message?! This guy saw the opportunity and ran with it!
Every Harry Potter fan knows that Voldemort is referred to as ‘You Know Who,’ which gave this person the perfect line to go with his ‘knock knock’ joke, as the response following the initial ‘knock knock’ is ‘who?’ This entire set up allowed him to deliver this joke flawlessly, and we have to say it is pretty hilarious!
Don’t cry, it’s only a joke
The best ‘knock knock’ jokes are the ones that are super simple to understand, that the person on the receiving end of the joke can hear the punchline come out of their mouths whilst they give their response. Take this interaction, for example.
The response of ‘Buu who’ makes it very clear that it is meant to sound like a crying noise. Well, they shouldn’t be too upset! After all, this joke is pretty funny.
It’s a spelling bee!
This person set their friend up to make a complete fool of themselves. Spelling the word ‘who’ is not that difficult, so fooling this individual who apparently thinks pretty highly of their intellectual abilities into asking how to spell the word is pretty comical!
Have any friends that you want to take their arrogance down a few notches in regards to their intelligence? This guy proved that this line works like a charm into fooling anyone!
This took a turn
When the initial response in this ‘knock knock’ text messaging thread was ‘urine,’ we are sure that the person on the other end of this joke was a bit nervous as to where this was headed.
Little did they know that the direction that this was going towards was One Direction. That is, the famous British boy band and the lyrics to the song that blew up the music industry when it was released: What Makes You Beautiful.
Sometimes movies just provide the best lines for a knock knock joke punchline. Take this scene, from the Disney cartoon film ‘Frozen.’
This hilarious and comical comment, “you-hoo, big summer blowout,” by the shop owner at the supply store in the forest is a memorable and funny moment, making it the perfect line to deliver it on an unsuspecting friend. Well, this person saw the perfect opportunity to make this joke, and they ran with it!
A+ for effort
This exchange, if anything, just proves that the person on the receiving end of a ‘knock knock’ joke has to be as eager to hear the joke as the person on the delivery side is to say it.
Clearly, this individual was not so keen to hear the joke, or they were just unfamiliar with how this popular joke actually works. Well, we have to applaud this joke maker’s efforts – they gave it two tries!
If you start the joke, you finish it.
There should be some sort of rule about sticking to the joke you start telling. Clearly, this guy does not get comedy etiquette, and when they decided that they were in the mood of a ‘knock knock’ joke, they instigated the conversation in that direction and then expected the recipient of this message to follow through!
Well, this may be a tough lesson to learn, but if you’re the one who starts the joke, you’re the one who delivers the punchline!
Wait for the punchline!
Some people are so impatient when it comes to jokes. They just want to hear the punchline already, so if it’s not a quick question and answer, one-liner joke, they have lost their concentration and interest.
Take this person, for example, who claims she has never heard a good ‘knock knock’ joke before. Well, maybe she should start waiting to hear the often hilarious punchline, and maybe then she won’t be so quick to judge!
If you ever find yourself on the receiving end of a ‘knock knock’ joke and you are simply just not in the mood, here is an awesome and hilarious way to own the person trying to play around.
Just respond with the words: ‘It’s open!’ and then the usual required answer of ‘who’s there’ becomes unnecessary, seeing as the door is open! So basically, not only do you avoid the joke, you also become the jokester yourself. What a win!
Needle little help…
Sometimes, instead of asking for help straight up, it could be more fun to think of a cool ‘knock knock’ joke to get the person you are asking assistance from excited about the prospect of helping out!
This is a good example of this situation: when this guy was looking for some assistance from a friend, they used the pun ‘needle little help,’ and we have to say, we would be more inclined to help someone who asked in such a comical way!
Knock knock knock knock
This girl was not so excited to hear a ‘knock knock’ joke over text message, when all this poor guy was trying to do was ask her to be his girlfriend.
Well, despite her initial reaction, we hope that she came around and gave this guy a chance! Is this not such a creative and cute gesture? And he has a sense of humor too! Basically, he sounds super awesome and hilarious, so hopefully her response is ‘yes!’
This adorable ‘knock knock’ joke this daughter made to her Mom has us feeling all the feels! Imagine thinking your daughter is just trying to make a, let’s be honest, annoying joke, only for the punchline to be a play on the words ‘I love you,’ with ‘Olive you.’
This is so sweet! It is punchlines like this that remind us that jokes are not just for getting the better of another person – they can be sweet too!
Sisters probably have the most epic love/ hate relationship. We fight like animals, but we have a sisterly bond that cannot compare to any other sort of relationship. This interaction is just so typical of sisters: the annoying initial message, followed by the passive aggressive ignoring of the message…
This sister is pretty aware that being ignored is the punch line – as per usual when dealing with a sister! We have to say, this is pretty funny!
