Up, Down and Over

Q: What goes through towns, up hills and down hills but never moves?
A: The road!

Explanation:  A road goes through towns, a road goes up hills and a road goes down hills but a road never moves- the vehicles on the road move.

This joke is funny because when you hear it, you are expecting an answer related to something like an animal or a car, not a road.

In the United States there are many songs and stories about roads and road trips.  Here is one version of a road song with visuals the whole way: Route 66
