Falling: Knock Knock Jokes
Adult humans don't usually laugh at Knock Knock Jokes; you can normally see them coming a mile off, and even if you don't see them coming you're more likely to react with weary acceptance than mirth. More enjoyable, I find, are the mystifyingly impenetrable Knock Knock Jokes; the ones that clearly provide some kind of comedic resonance to the person to invented them, but remain stubbornly impervious to analysis and leave you puzzling over them as if they were ancient Mayan riddles or fossilized footprints. Here's some from today, fresh off Twitter:

Knock Knock "Who's there" Porkchop Giniling "Porkchop Giniling who" Porkchop Giniling hold on to that feeling-Greg Hubo (@greghubo) November 1, 2013
Actually, that last one is pretty good, if only because the author has recognised the similarity between the words "Porkchop Giniling" and "Don't Stop Believin'" – although how he came to that realisation is going to remain a glorious mystery. I like the ones that start in English and lapse into not English:
