They say laughter is the soul of romance, which means corny jokes must be the bedrock of a happy marriage. The value of a cute love joke or a flirty knock-knock joke is well known to those who grew up in the pre-meme era when the only messages you could pass to a cute classmate were folded notes or chalky candy hearts.

In the tradition of the classic “I Choo-Choo-Choose You,” these puns and cheesy jokes are family-friendly but a little flirty, meaning they can earn you a laugh from your kid and a wink (or an eye-roll) from your significant other. As important as it is for any corny love joke to be clever, a little chemistry is also an essential ingredient. These cute knock-knock jokes are guaranteed to give you the giggles and major googly eyes.
