It’s unfortunate that the Olympic Games only come around every four years because they provide so much entertainment for everyone in the family. From the sporting events to the increasingly over-the-top opening and closing ceremonies, there’s something for everyone to watch and enjoy.
And while most people love their families, being cooped up with everyone in front of the television is bound to make the togetherness feel old really fast. Enter humor and entertainment, especially for the kids who will no doubt get bored any time the commercials come on, or when there’s a slower sport (no offense to curling) being played.
So here's a collection of Olympic jokes for the kids. Your young ones will be rolling on the floor with these PG-rated Olympic jokes that you can share when it comes time to watch the world’s best athletes compete against each other.
Just make sure you stick the landing … We mean the punchline!
