There are some quick jokes you can slip into conversation, a hilarious selection of animal jokes that you'll love, and they are all right here.

But before you start choosing a joke or two to make your family laugh, every good comic has to know its source material. Here are some fun rain facts for you before we let you loose on our great collection of raindrop jokes and puns.

Did you know the very first umbrellas could have been used 4000 years ago but were first designed to shield you from the sun? If you lived in Egyptian times you didn't have much protection from the rain, which depending on the size of the raindrop can fall at speeds of up to 20mph. That's a decent speed, but not all raindrops splash on the ground, some may evaporate in the sky, while others freeze instantly on hitting a surface. Freezing rain may be cold like ice, but you'll soon warm up a room with our rain jokes for kids, so are you ready to get started?
