Game Day with Ruthy! Corny Jokes!

I love corny jokes, especially if they’re from kids…

And especially if they CAN’T STOP LAUGHING WHILE THEY TELL YOU because they’re already cracking themselves up!

Remember Popsicle Stick jokes????

My boys loved them!!! Such funny one-liners!

So here are a few for you for game day… And if you give me a comment or an answer, (right or wrong!) I’m putting you into the drawing for a copy of “Healing the Cowboy’s Heart”. Win it before you can buy it, darlings!

Here’s a sample for you:

1. Why did the kid cross the playground?

Answer:  To get to the other side!

HAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  🙂  Get the idea? I’m still giggling.

Now it’s your turn, my friends! See if you know these funny come backs!


2. What did the Dalmatian say after lunch?

Answer:  ????????

3. What kind of tree fits in your hand?

Answer:  ????????

4. What did the little corn say to the mama corn?

Answer:  ????????

Okay, your turn! You can either turn the tables on me and give me a joke below OR try and answer one of these…

Right or ridiculously wrong, you’re going into the drawing for this third “Shepherd’s Crossing” Western, set in West Central Idaho where the Snake River flows free  and the rich, broad valley rises to mountains and forests… a land forged by strong hands and hearts, the kind that live there still.  PRE-ORDER HERE!

Horse breeder Isaiah Woods can’t believe his only ally in helping a neglected mare is the descendant of his family’s bitter enemy—veterinarian Charlotte Fitzgerald. Despite the feud, Charlotte risks everything to save the horse. But as she falls for Isaiah—and the orphaned niece and nephew in his care—the mare isn’t the only one who needs saving.

      I am stumped! What do race horses eat, Tonya????? 🙂

  3. Okay my guesses to yours? I’m probably wrong but so much fun deciding:
    2. What did the Dalmatian say after lunch?

    Answer: That hit the spot or that was spot on?

    3. What kind of tree fits in your hand?

    Answer: Palm Tree!

      How fun.
      Q. When a rooster laid the egg on a pitched roof which way does it roll?

      1. Hahahahaha! My rooster has never laid an egg, LOL!

        1. Avatar

          Correct. Lol. A lot of people miss that fact.

    1. To get to the other slide not side???

    2. That hit the spot!

    3. Palm!

    4. Can I have a niblet?
    When will pop corn be home?

    Fun blog!

    1. Oh, I like the other “slide” version!!!!!

      I miss old slides….. they were fast. Probably deadly. But these new plastic slides are awful. Wouldn’t you think they could come with a fast metal slide that has a safe top?

      I would risk a toasty butt (hot summer days) for a fast slide! Those twisty things toss us around.

      Totally off-topic opinion!!!!!

  5. So yesterday I wore a dress with flamingos on it to church and got a lot of compliments on it. But, one guy told me this silly joke.
    Why was the flamingo standing on one foot?
    His kid left a Lego out that night.

    1. Hahahahaha! Oh, those Legos have been the death of me with 6 kids and 14 grandkids…. That’s so funny!!! Now I want a flamingo dress, but they’re not actually a thing in WNY…. 🙁 We’re more Canada Goose! 🙂 And I do not want a dress covered with geese.

      Just not the same. 🙂

  6. 2. that hit the spot.
    3. a palm tree
    4. Where’s popcorn

    1. Hahahahaha! Don’t you love corny jokes?

      GET IT???


  7. What happened when the barking dog chased the mailman and ran into a tree?

    1. He found out the bark was worse than the bite ??. ? ?

      I loved this blog and will definitely be reading a few Ruth Logan Herne books.

      Thank you Ruth! Blessings on your day!

      1. Kathy, I’m so glad you stopped by! The bark is indeed worse than the bite, LOL!!!!

        1. I have to credit my husband with this one!

  8. Here’s another one:
    How many lives does a frog have ?

    1. Lots and lots! They croak every night!

      (That’s a good sign of spring in Minnesota when we begin to hear the frogs croaking at night).

      1. Oh, now I’m rolling on the floor laughing at that one because my grandkids will think I’m the COOLEST GRAMMY ON THE PLANET when I tell them! Hahahahahahahahahahahah!

        1. I know … the grands will get a good laugh out if this joke!

    I guess I posted my comment on another person post. Lol. Sorry about that.

    1. Oh, you are fine, sweet thing! Better than fine! 🙂

  10. To the tree one: Broccoli, not great but I tried.

    1. Oh, Lori, I love it! I am so bad at riddles and jokes and that’s half the fun of it!

  11. Thanks for the laugh.

    1. You’re welcome! It’s like the “Lighter Side” in Reader’s Digest!

  12. The first joke I always tell small children.

    When is a car not a car?
    When it turns into a parking lot.

    1. Oh, I’ve used that one with kids!!! Know-it-all seven-year-old boys with those Scholastic joke books and they think they’re so funny and smart…. and of course they are, but they don’t realize some of these are soooooo old! Mary, I love that one!

  13. What side of the chicken has feathers?

    When is a door not a door?

    Knock knock
    Who’s there
    Boo who

    (I have listened to so many knock knock jokes with my grandchildren!!!)

    1. Oh, who’s going to answer the chicken one?????

      I have to clean out a chicken house this week.


      That’s all I’m sayin’….

  14. What do you call a pig that knows karate?
    A pork chop!

    1. Oh mylanta, that’s perfect!

  15. This is an Awesome post! What did the alligator say to the crocodile? “In a while crocodile” What did the crocodile say to the alligator! “Later gator!”
