St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday for green beer, four-leaf clovers and funny one-liners. If you’re searching for short riddles to share with your little leprechauns, look no further — we’ve got you covered (in green).
But be careful if you’re Vice President Joe Biden, who last year made international headlines after he joked with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny that “if you’re wearing orange, you’re not welcome in here” at a March breakfast. Unbeknownst to Biden, the color orange is linked to Ireland’s Protestants. At least one leader in Ireland later called for Biden to apologize, according to the BBC.
Here are 15 kid-appropriate jokes that won’t cause offense, just giggles, this St. Patrick’s Day. These one-liners are collected from st-patricks-day.com, Enchanted Learning, jokes4us and kidsjokes.co.uk:
