Cindy’s Joke Page 


Did you ever wonder where Cindy gets those silly jokes she tells in concert or puts in the newsletter? Some of them she gets from joke books she buys at local bookstores or at Scholastic Book Fairs at elementary schools. Other jokes she gets from kids who come up after the show to tell her their favorite joke.


This page is devoted to silly jokes. Some you may already know, some might be new to you. This is your page though. Send Cindy your favorite jokes along with your name, age and city where you live. We’ll print them on this page. Keep checking back to see if your joke is here.
