Knock knock jokes

Telling knock, knock jokes in Taiwan to second language English speakers is a painful experience. First… you explain the structure:

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
________.
________ who?
[ridiculously lame punchline]

Then you explain how the punchline works together with the “____ who?” line. Try your absolute best to explain how a pun works.

Next: prompt students to put on their best smirk or laugh because it’s just good manners.

Well, I challenged one class to find some and one student came back with a few gems. Here they are for your viewing pleasure.
