Who's funnier?

Bilal: "Why did the cow cross the road?"
Mama: "I don't know, why did the cow cross the road?"
Bilal: "To go to the moo-vies!"

Very funny, right? Well, it was funny the first few times I heard it, but after a while I started thinking that maybe my budding comedian needs some new material. But he loves telling that joke, so you can't help but laugh at how funny he thinks it is. I guess I should be glad that he hasn't yet caught up with the type of humor that includes certain bodily functions!

And on the other hand,
Safa: "Knock knock"
Mama: "Who's there?"
Safa: "Who"
Mama: "Safa, is this going to be another of those owl jokes?"
Safa: "No, Mama."
Mama: "OK, who who?"
Safa: " You mean who whom? Ha ha, I cracked a grammar joke!"

Anyone who knows Safa is aware that she is a grammar freak. So this joke is right up her alley.

And speaking of grammar jokes, these are a couple more I found on the web:

What's the difference between a cat and a comma?
One has claws at the end of its paws and one is a pause at the end of a clause.

When I was a kid, my English teacher looked my way and said, "Name two pronouns."  I said, "Who, me?"

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day. "In English," he said, "A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."  A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."
