I can't stop reading these Dadaist jokes written by children

Bad Kids Jokes is a Tumblr that offers exactly what the name promises. "I moderate jokes on a Kids Jokes website," the person behind it writes, as though "kids jokes websites" are a recognizable genre of website. "A lot of joke submissions can't be published because they don't make any sense, the child got a genuine joke completely wrong, or they're a bit too rude for kids … so I publish them here instead."

The result is 33 pages of child-penned Dadaist nonsense, much of it concerning bodily discharges and/or the perfidy of teachers, and all of it hysterical.

There's some zoological humor:

gess how many snakes there are

13

A lot of the jokes concern sports or other competitions, such as ham contests:

if you go to the ham contest wat will the man say

you won last year you are not alowed

Or bowling:

why did the skittle go bowling?

because he is part of bowling.

Given that the jokes are by children, a certain amount of butts-related content is to be expected:

WHAT DO YOU CALL A BALD MAN WITH A BUTT HEADED FACE?

The answer is butt man

As are challenges to teachers' authority:

a boys name is shut up. his teacher asked him his name and he said "shut up" OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH

This kid has intriguing beliefs about law enforcement:

why are policemen brave?

because they are robots

The author of this one has strong opinions about natural law:

A duck walks into a bar. A man runs out because its unnatural to have a duck in a bar.

I think this one is expressing progressive views on marriage equality but honestly it's hard to say:

why did tom and jerry get married

Because tom was a boy and jerry was a boy and they were strong as a toliet.

This one suggests the author is emotionally prepared for a lifetime of arguing on the internet:

man: you are evil

other man: i am not

man:yes

no

yes

no

yes

no

yes

no

yes

no

[both mans die]
