We'll have you belly laughing with today's Body Systems Jokes on Chompers! 

Where to Listen



>> RACHEL: Good morning, and welcome to Chompers! Your morning and night tooth brushing show. 

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and make little circles with your brush around each tooth. 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 BRUSH!


>> RACHEL: Get ready for some BELLY laughs, cause it’s Body Systems week on Chompers and we’ve got some jokes for you.


>> RACHEL: Here’s your first joke:

Why didn’t the skeleton go to the party? 

>> KID: Why?

>> RACHEL: Because he had no BODY to go with!


>> RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: and brush your front teeth too. 

The SKELETON had no BODY to go with! Your skeletal system is mostly just made up of your bones! And when someone says body, they ALL of the parts that make up a person. The skin, muscles, organs -- and the skeleton -- are all considered parts of our body. An organ is a part of that body with a specific job, like our heart! So, the skeleton had no BODY to go to the party with because it was all bones! 


Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: -and brush your tongue too. 

Ok, ready for your next joke?

Why didn’t the brain want to go skydiving?

>> KID: I dont know!

>> RACHEL: Because it was part of the nervous system!


>> RACHEL: Your Nervous System is what we call the body system that sends messages from your brain to your body!


>> RACHEL: It’s made up of a series of nerves, which are like little pathways connecting your brain to all your body parts.

Switch your brushing to other side of the bottom of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: and keep on brushing. 

These pathways carry messages in the form of electronic signals. 


>> RACHEL: Like when I want to stand up, my brain uses my NERVES to send a message that says…


>> RACHEL: “please stand!” Skydiving is when you jump out of a plane with a parachute, a piece of fabric that brings you back down to earth slowly and safely.


>> RACHEL: And that might make some people…




>> RACHEL: That’s all the jokes we have for this morning, but we’ll be back tonight. Until then,

>> KIDS: 3-2-1 Spit!
