Three Best Halloween Jokes As Told by Trick-or-Treaters Age 8 and Under

Halloween in St. Louis is somewhat unique in that we require trick-or-treaters to tell us jokes in exchange for candy.

Yes, somewhere along the way St. Louisan's interpreted trick-or-treat as trick-FOR-treat, implying that costumed tykes should entertain us with a trick (or joke) before receiving a sweet. This, by the way, is in contrast to the more agreed-upon version of trick-or-treating in which kids will play a trick on you (ie. egg your house, smash your jack-o'-lantern) if you don't fork over some candy.

But I digress. The intent of this post is to share  some of the best wisecracks we overheard this Halloween.

Here are three in order from slightly amusing to darn-right funny -- for an 8-year-old.

1. What does Tigger say after he goes to the bathroom?

Goodbye, Pooh.

2. What did the fish say when it ran into a wall?


3. What do you get when you cross an elephant with a rhinoceros?


Bonus: And the most popular joke this year...

How do you wake up Lady GaGa?

Poker Face.
