Today’s collection of web picks is all about clean, funny kids jokes designed to get you LOL* or better yet ROTFL.** Laugher is good medicine for all ages. Enjoy!

  • AzKidsNet: Knock Knock Jokes4 stars

    As good comedians know, how a joke is presented is just as important as the joke itself. I like the presentation at AzKidsNet because the punchline is hidden until you make it appear. On the Knock Knock Jokes pages, simply hover over "Who's There?" to see the question, and then move over to "Answer" to see the punchline. The other joke pages, such as Elephant Jokes, Riddles and Brainteasers, use a variety of different (but easy to use) click and hover techniques to keep the answers hidden until you are ready for them.

  • OWL: The Last Laugh3 stars

    OWLKids of Canada serves up riddles, knock-knock jokes and moaners in a fun format that doesn't ruin the punchline. "Why is an egg like a promise?" To find out click on the Next Joke button. After the jokes, explore the rest of the site, which features puzzles and articles from the publishers of three children's magazines: Chirp (for three to six year olds), ChickaDEE (for kids six to nine) and OWL (for nine and up).

  • Scatty.com4 stars

    Does your name have its own knock knock joke? Mine does. "Knock, knock. Who's there? Barbara. Barbara who? Barbara black sheep, have you any wool!" Scatty's collection tops 12,898 jokes in more than a dozen categories. Some topics are tried-and-true favorites such as Riddles, Doctor Doctor and Knock Knock, while others are novel categories such as Internet Jokes, Fairy Tale Jokes, Boy Jokes and Girl Jokes. All joked out? Scatty.com also has a Games page.

  • Yahoo! Kids: Jokes & Humor5 stars

    "What color is a burp? Burple!" "What kind of dance do you do on a trampoline? Hip-hop!" "Where do horses live? In neigh-borhoods!" You can scroll through Yahoo's 2110 jokes seven at a time, or choose one of ten categories, and peruse them in smaller batches. To find more joke sites in the Yahoo! Kids Directory, click on any keyword in the tag cloud in the right-hand column.
