A joke format.
A joke format who?
A joke format as old as time itself that is slowly dying out because young people reportedly no longer make Knock Knock jokes.
Yep, according to a poll by the insights agency Perspectus Global, only 20% of people under the age of 30 have ever heard or told a Knock Knock joke.
It’s hard to say whether it is the duty of everybody over the age of 30 to now corner every young person they meet and tell them a Knock Knock joke in order to keep the tradition going, but it surely couldn’t hurt.
What kind of world are we leaving to the next generation if 80% of people under 30 have never heard the words “Knock knock. Who’s there? Boo. Boo who? Cheer up!”
75% of people from all ages agreed that Knock Knock jokes are “a bit old fashioned” which shows they haven’t heard that ‘boo who?’ joke lately.
Maybe Knock Knock jokes just need a rebrand. Maybe we need to start calling them Fresh Door Memes, and create a TikTok dance craze around them.
Knock Knock jokes should be a way to build a bridge through the use of terrible jokes to connect generations, not separate them. Gen Z deserve bad Knock Knock jokes that allow them to see the world through the eyes of the over-30 crowd. The under-30s need to answer the door when they hear an older person knock on it.
Charli D’Amelio who?
Exactly. Who is that? Please tell me. I have no idea what’s going on anymore.
