March 2013

What do you get when you cross a vampire with a snowman?

Why did I just tell you that silly joke?

What is the funniest book you ever read?
One of my favorites (and it was hard to choose just one) is:

by Peter Armour
When Mrs. Elmira Deeds waddles into Mr. Adolph's deli and asks for a pickle, chaos erupts!  The pickle escapes from the jar and a cast of zany characters joins in the chase to stop the pickle as it attempts to run away. This book is so fun to read aloud. I especially like to talk like the "seventeen toasted almonds"!

Have you heard this one?

When does B come after U?
When you steal some of its honey!

A funny author I love is Jon Scieszca.
All of his books, from picture books like, The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales,
to his chapter books like, The Time Warp trio,  can always make me laugh.

Check out his hilarious (and slightly weird) website.

Okay, here is my last joke -

Knock, knock
(who's there?)
Cows say
(cows say who?)
No silly, cows say Moo!

Do you have a favorite funny book or joke to share?

Did you know that "a giant squid's eyeball can be as big as a human head"?
Or that "the most overdue library book was 288 years late"?
Or how about "if you counted all the hours Angry Birds fans have spent playing the game, it would add up to more than 200,000 years"?
Weird, right? But true!

Here are some more questions for you:
Do you know what Barbie's full name is?
How much an elephant's tooth weighs?
How fast lightning is moving when you see it?

You can find answers to these questions and more in this great series from National Geographic: Weird but True!
