I need some help.
One of the ways I stay connected to my grandkids is to share a joke or two. We do this regularly.
But I am running out, even if they are still going strong.
Family life is disrupted like everything else. And finding different ways to stay connected is clearly important.
Real life for adults may be concerning at fundamental levels, but we need to keep these pressure off our children as much as we can, and stories and jokes can be a part of that. I am not suggesting it even needs to be a major part, but having a fun, light time will not only help pass the time, but balance off the more gloomy parts of the lockdown.
Anyway, I thought if I share some of our joke banter, you might help me with some others I could pass on.
Please add them in the Comment section below.
I need them suitable for school-age children, any age. (And yes, I know I could just google for some, but everyone does that so I am looking for some a little more unique, even Kiwi-unique.)
Please keep them child-friendly.
(PS: here is the link to last week's coronavirus humour for adults.)
Here are some we have already shared:

A cop sees a guy with a dozen penguins in the bed of his pickup. He pulls the guy over and starts yelling at him, "What the heck are you doing? You can't have these penguins here! You have to take them to the zoo right away!" The guy says, "Yes sir! I'll do it right away!" and drives off. The next day, the cop sees the same guy, same pickup, same dozen penguins in the bed only this time they're all wearing sunglasses. The cop pulls him over, and now he's angry! He says, "What are you doing? I told you to take them to the zoo!" The guy replies, "I took them to the zoo yesterday; today I'm taking them to the beach!"

A rope walks into a restaurant. The waiter says, "You'll have to leave. We don't serve ropes here." The rope goes outside and cries, and then rubs himself on the ground and ties himself.
