Computers and the internet are a part of all of our lives now — and that means it can be hard to escape screens. If you’re trying to limit both your and your kid’s time online, maybe try some jokes about screens instead of staring at them. Here are some clean, kid-friendly computer jokes to share. They’re so entertaining that your little computer addicts just might forget about all the internet fun they’re missing out on.
These jokes may even motivate your kid to become a computer programmer. Let’s be real, a spy is only as good as their computer hacker and every hero needs one to help them save the day. Benji from Mission Impossible and Wade from Kim Possible are a few classic computer lovers who make their agents look great. These jokes may even inspire your little one to take a stab at coding, which can be a lot of fun and boost their math skills. It’s also a great way to stimulate creativity and improve problem solving techniques. Learning to code is a total confidence booster since it isn’t usually taught in the classroom. Having these skills gives kids more assurance. But before we explore the tech world, let’s start with some mainframe funnies.
