Turkey Jokes for My Young Dinner Guests

With a bunch of kids coming over for turkey next week, I thought it was time to find some math turkey jokes. But let’s be honest: they’re mostly about pi, and once you’ve heard one pi joke the rest are all pretty similar.

Q: What is the area of pi?
A: pi R^2?
R: Pie are not square. Pie are round. Cornbread are square.

So I decided to resurrect some turkey jokes, sans math. I’ll admit that you may have heard some of these before. But I know some young kids who will think these are completely original – and pretty funny!

Q: What did the turkey say to the turkey hunter?
A: “Quack, quack, quack!”

Q: What did the turkey say before it was eaten?
A: Boy! I’m stuffed!

Q: Why did the Pilgrims want to sail to America in the spring?
A: Because April showers bring Mayflowers.

Q: Why did they let the turkey join the band?
A: Because he had the drumsticks

Q: Why did the turkey cross the road?
A: Because it was the chicken’s day off.

When everyone is going around the table saying what they are thankful for, say, “I’m thankful I didn’t get caught.” Then refuse to say anything more.

Q: What kind of music did the Pilgrims like?
A: Plymouth Rock

Q: Which side of the turkey has the most feathers?
A: The outside

Q: How do you keep a turkey in suspense?
A: I’ll let you know next week!

These are just a few of my favorites – but I’d love to hear your best turkey jokes!
