Writers on Jimmy Kimmel Live decided to let children write jokes for the show recently. The results were…watch for yourself.
As Kimmelâ€™s team put it: â€śTake your daughters and sons to work day was last week and we had a bunch of kids here in the office. Our writers, in keeping with their never-ending quest to do as little as possible asked their kids to write jokes for them and come up with material for Jimmy to share on the show.â€ť
Some of the puns were as good as they get. Consider this one: â€śWhat do you call it when the sky is filled with a whirlwind of cats?â€ť The answer? â€śA purr-icaneâ€ť.
Kimmel called the exercise â€śthe most adorable violation of child labour laws.â€ť
Another joke went, â€śWhy did the cow jump over the moon?â€ť The child who wrote the joke answered, â€śTo get away from his crazy ex-wife!â€ť
And hereâ€™s a cat joke written by a child named Sy: â€śWhat do you call it when flaming cats come falling down to earth? A catastropheâ€ť. Kimmel remarked, â€śIâ€™m hoping Sy doesnâ€™t have any animals in the home.â€ť
