Q: What is the best time to go to the dentist?
A: 2:30 (Tooth hurty!)

Explanation: A bad joke for the new year… and I hope your teeth (one tooth, two teeth) do not hurt!

This joke is funny because two thirty (2:30) sounds the same as tooth hurty.  You’re right, ‘hurty’ is not a real word.  A child might use the word ‘hurty’ or ‘owie’ or ‘boo boo’ to say that something hurts: “I have a tooth hurty.”  It’s not common but it happens.  If your tooth really hurts it is time to go to the dentist no matter the hour of the day.

Please send me any child-friendly jokes that you would like explained.
