Want to laugh? Head to this Joke Booth
“What does a rain cloud wear under its coat?”
The joke may seem a bit childish to you. But actually, it’s told by a child.
After six months of practicing one-liners on his parents and two younger siblings, 6-year-old Callaghan McLaughlin set up a joke booth at the end of his driveway last month and waited for his targets — friends and their parents — to amble by.
The British Columbia first-grader wanted to bring some cheer to the gloomy lockdown environment, and so he started entertaining people by telling jokes – from a safe distance!
“What kind of bug is bad at football?”
The kid would narrate all 16 jokes he’d memorized from the book his mom gave him, “Laugh out Loud Jokes for Kids” and would start all over again.
“What does a duck snack on?”
“Cheese and quackers!”
Even if the jokes are groaners, people are happy to be entertained by a giggling 6-year-old during these stressful days.
With hours to fill while school is online during the pandemic, Callaghan figured a joke booth would be better than his other idea, a lemonade stand.
“Even when you are scared or sad, a good joke makes you feel a little bit better,” the kid said.
Well, we do hope he fulfils his dream of becoming a stand up comic but has few more than just 16 jokes!
