Doris and Clive do the second good knock knock joke

As promised, today super intelligent aliens Doris and Clive will run through the second known "good" knock knock joke. Their run through yesterday of the first "good" knock knock joke (Interrupting cow) did not go smoothly, but today they feel they are better prepared, and everyone here at clerkmanifesto feels you will find this to be very funny, or sort of funny, or at least that you will attain a clear understanding of the proper execution of this knock knock joke.

Without further ado, here is the second known "good" knock knock joke:

Oh, sorry, I think I let it run on a bit long. Theodore is a friend of theirs. I asked them why they think he would especially like it. Clive said "Because it's very funny." Then he slowed down to make sure I understood. "It is a very funny joke."

"But why in particular Theodore?" I asked.

Doris thought for a minute to understand what I was asking. "Theodore is intensely interested in linguistics." She answered.

So, there you have it. If you run into a one eyed super intelligent alien named Theodore, try out this knock knock joke on him. English majors also enjoy it.


  1. Oh, I adore Doris! It's been over 20 years since I've seen her. Is she going to be on Earth for very long?

    1. The portal is expected to remain vital for 11 more days, but not earth days, well, it's complicated, but her comings and goings should encompass the whole of our lifetimes.

    1. Well, this seems like this might be spam, but I'm posting it up because the comment is just so accurate!

      If it's not spam, er, thank you.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
