About Knock-Knock Jokes

The knock-knock joke is a type of joke, probably the best-known format of the pun, and is a time-honored 'call and answer' exercise. It is a role-play exercise, with a punster and a recipient of wit. The standard format has five lines: The punster: Knock knock!The recipient: Who's there?The punster: a variable response, sometimes involving a name (Doctor)The recipient: a repetition of the response followed by who? (Doctor who?)The punster: the punch line, which typically involves a pun-based misusage of the word set up during the response (How did you know?!)
