My daughter loves this list of knock knock jokes, though she’s easy to please. If you know of a funny knock knock joke that is missing from this list, please leave a comment. I’ve updated this post with plenty of input from people around the globe!

    first ask the child if he loves you. When he says yes, ask “You never will forget me?”
    When he says no, say “knock, knock”. When he says who’s there, you say “you forgot me already?!”
