“Not Commonly Tall……Frank Knox Knock Knock Jokes ……Barney the Blanket”

Less than 15% of men in the United States are over six feet tall.

Knock knock jokes got popular in the 1930s when a guy named Alf Landon was running for president against FDR.  He picked a former Army colonel named Frank Knox as his vice presidential candidate, and knock knock jokes about him were a hit.

Barney the Dinosaur was originally going to be a talking blanket, then a teddy bear that came to life . . . but eventually he became a dinosaur.
