Hello. I don't understand what these knock knock jokes below so funny.
Please help me!!!
Scotta be a funnier joke than this!
Phillip the tank I'm outta gas!
Chemo sabe will make you puke!
These are very poor examples of the genre. They are not funny at all.
sounds a bit likeScotta be a funnier joke than this!
'It's got to be a funnier joke than this!'
is supposed to sound likePhillip the tank I'm outta gas!
'Fill up the tank; I'm out of gas.'
'Chemo sabe' sounds like kemo sabe.Chemo sabe will make you puke!
Don't ask me to explain that one.
The only one of those that sounds like a knock-knock joke to me is the one with Phillip.
A knock-knock joke has a person's name or a common noun. Then that name/noun is reused as a pun where the SOUND it makes is used to complete a sentence.
Phillip = Fill up
The last one doesn't work because no one is named "Chemo" and while Tonto called the Lone Ranger Kimosabe, it's not part of chemotherapy, a cancer treatment, and there's very little that's humorous about cancer in any case.
Scott is a name... is Scotta a name where you live? You're suppose to hear "It's got to be" with "Scotta."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Scott to be a funnier joke than this.
...it still wouldn't be terribly funny but at least it would fit the general construction.
