Bringing up boys: The joys of joke telling...(GROAN)

In the car with Bog Boy and suddenly he turns to me and says:
Mummy can I tell you a joke?
OK then...
Knock Knock
Who's there?
Mr Boo
I don't think it goes like that. Try this: Knock Knock
Who's there?
Boo Who
Don't cry little boy...
OK! OK! I do it now Mummy...Knock Knock
Who's there
Mr Who?
Don't cry little boy!
Don't think you've quite got the hang of this have you....
