Hands down, the best part of Popsicles is the Popsicle stick joke. There's nothing better than a joke so bad it's funny, and TBH, everyone could use a bit more humor in their life. If you’re looking to start a conversation with something a little more exciting than “What’s up?” why not make your partner laugh? These funny jokes to text your partner might be a little corny, sure, but they’re guaranteed to make them smile.

As relationship psychotherapist Dr. Fran Walfish previously explained to Elite Daily, a shared mutual sense of humor is a wonderful thing to have in a relationship. In fact, it’s “part of the glue that bonds partners together as a couple,” Dr. Walfish said. If your partner is having a bad day or you’re both still reeling from a disagreement, a good joke can break the tension, keep your relationship fun, and get a good laugh out of your partner.

From the flirty to the ridiculous, here’s a wealth of jokes guaranteed to put a smile on your partner’s face — and just possibly bring you even closer together.

Pick-Up Line Jokes

Knock-Knock Jokes

Knock-knock jokes are short and sweet, and they'll allow your partner a chance to participate in the joke. (Though I definitely can't guarantee they'll be a willing participant.) For maximum corniness, try some of these cute jokes.

  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Olive." "Olive, who?" "Olive you so much."
  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Norma Lee." "Norma Lee, who?" "Norma Lee I don't say this, but I think I'm falling in love with you."
  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Honeydew." "Honeydew, who?" "Honeydew you know how much I love you?"
  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Juno." "Juno, who?" "Juno that you’re the love of my life?"
  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Lena." "Lena, who?" "Lena little closer so I can kiss you."
  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Ben." "Ben, who?" "Ben thinking about you all day."
  • "Knock, knock." "Who’s there?" "Muffin." "Muffin, who?" "Muffin in this world can keep us apart."
