My favorite elephant jokes come from the 1960s, when they first came out. Okay, so they’re dated. But grandkids love them because the jokes are short, always start with a question, and bring an absurd image to mind. I like them because they’re wholesome and funny. So if you want to hear kids laugh, try telling them some of these.
