Here in St. Louis we’re known for many things: the Gateway Arch, toasted ravioli, provel cheese, the question “Where’d you go to high school?,” Cardinal Nation, and, of course, telling jokes on Halloween while trick-or-treating. I didn’t realize this last item was a “St. Louis thing” until I went to college just 3 hours away and anyone who wasn’t from St. Louis didn’t have a clue what I was talking about. Who knew?
We’ve been feverishly trying to teach Buddy a knock-knock joke for most of October but perhaps 25-months-old was a little young for this…even with his language and vocabulary being well beyond his years…er…months. I plan to require a joke from every trick-or-treater who rings my bell and looks to be in elementary school. Preschoolers will be asked, but not required. Can’t wait to see what the favorites are this year!
For now, here’s a list of some of Mandy’s and my favorite Halloween jokes!
What do baby ghosts wear on Halloween? White pillowcases.
Do zombies eat popcorn with their fingers? No, they eat the fingers separately.
What’s a vampire’s favorite ice cream flavor? Vein-illa. (Ew!)
What kind of shoes does a ghost wear? Boooooots
What do you get when you take a witch on vacation? A Sand-witch
How do you make a tissue dance? Put a little boogie in it. (heehee)
Why do demons and ghouls hang out together? Cause demons are a ghoul’s best friend.
Why do ghosts like to ride elevators? It raises their spirits.
