    Talking Where is the humor? I can't understand these jokes, please help me

    There are two jokes here, but I can't understand them.

    1. Q: What goes Oh, Oh, Oh?
    A: Santa Claus walking ackwards.
    2. Q:Have you seen Stevie Wonder's new car?
    A: No, but neither has he.

    Can you please help me find where the humor exists? THANKS!

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    (1) If he were walking forward, he would say "Ho." But he is walking backwards, so he says "Oh."

    (2) Mr. Wonder, the singer, is blind.

    I think the first one is very funny. I think the second one is tasteless.

    Humor is not universal.
    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.
