Introducing “All the children” jokes

Here in Sweden, there’s a classic joke cycle called “All the children-jokes”. They’re kind of like limericks, but less strict. All jokes follow this pattern in some way:

“All the children do x, except [name] because he/she does y.”

Where y rhymes with the name. You can experiment with tense and phrasing as you like. The point is to make y as unexpected and comical in relation to x as possible. Of course, there is also the game of making these jokes as dirty and morbid as possible.

Some examples:

All the children were planned, except Jake.

His parents made a mistake.


All the children were tired, except Jane.

She had cocaine.


All the children stared into the microwave, except Jack.

He stared back.


All the children were swimming, except Joe.
