Kids are master joke tellers. This is just an unequivocal fact. They may be struggling with pretty much every other aspect of life—they’re still learning to read and write and use the potty and put on clothes by themselves—but when it comes to jokes, they have adults beat every time. If you don’t believe us, you’ve probably never had an original joke told to you by a child. We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but you’ve been missing out on some of the best comedy ever created.
Note: Before you dig in, know that jokes from children are often clever and they’re often wildly nonsensical (to the point that you’re really scratching your head), but the point is that the children get them—and they’re usually delivered with an energy that is too infectious not to make you howl with laughter. Here are 50 of our favorite jokes written by kids, which are so crazy funny that Netflix should be giving them all their own comedy specials.
