Your 'knock Knock' Joke
7/13/2009 at 2:00 PM ET
i have an idea for a new social networking site that could be as big as facebook and twitter combined. it will be highly interactive and very very funny. and it will foster very deep connections between people who are essentially strangers living in strange lands.
the basis for this social interaction will be the "knock knock" joke.
myspace no longer exists, they went broke
what i'm looking for here is “YOUR KNOCK KNOCK” joke. what would you send to your future best friend forever? The more dry, sarcastic, caustic, irreverent, cheesy and unabashedly direct the better.
points will be awarded based on amusement, or really just for posting.
thanks in advance for taking this seriosly.

After a 'joke' (?) like that you better hope people take you seriously! :)
"Howya think THIS site will make money?"

Steve, it appears that you've been here a while and greatly contributed to the forum, so I'm fighting my usual curmudgeonly, caustic self and providing a kinder, gentler reply than was my first instinct...
First off, I don't think the majority of people think knock-knock jokes are terribly funny. Of course, that's all subject to individual taste.
Second of all, I don't think people want to use text to tell or hear (make that, "read") knock-knock jokes. I think knock-knock jokes are more of a verbal/audio thing. They don't lend themselves well to the written word.
Third, I'm not sure you help your cause when you say that this could be as big as Facebook or Twitter combined. I applaud the big dreamer, but this is a one-trick pony. I don't think you can build a whole business around this. Maybe this is something Twitter users would sign up for from you? Their daily knock-knock joke?
I dunno. Frankly, I don't get it.
Now go raise $10 million in venture capital, make $100 million for yourself, and prove me to be the ass that I am.

Not big on knock knock jokes. Most people won't even respond to my "knock knock".
Me too, Mr. T.

I get it! This is a fun posting! I've just jumped onto this site after a long absence and it's good to see a posting which encourages me to contribute.

Hope this helps. Now, if your social media empire takes off, I expect to receive a cut of the gross!

Steve - How about calling the site: Knock-E-Knock (knockeknock.com is available)? WhosThere.com is for sale as well.
And for a knock-knock joke for you:
