Humorous stories for kids : [The ultimate climax]

Life is simple but we make it complex. There are multiple ways to lead a life in a simple way. Humorous stories are one such option.
Humorous stories are liked by people irrespective of age.
Kids enjoy reading humorous stories. Narrating humorous stories to kids is also an art.
The story below is about a King & what happened with him at the fag end of the story.


Once upon a time, there lived a King who was very wise. The people in his Kingdom were also happy with the way they were governed.
The King had a habit of moving around in his kingdom but in disguise. He dressed as a common man & moved around. His sole aim was to see how his people were living. Whether they were facing any issues in day to day life and what was their opinion about the king.
No-one in the kingdom knew about this secret strategy of the King. The King used to take only 1 trusted servant with him.

An Eventful day

Like other days, the King was moving with his trusted servant. Suddenly, an unfamiliar smell attracted his attention. He asked his servant –
” Go and see what’s that wonderful and delicious smell”?
The servant said –
“Ok, Maharaj! I will inquire and get back to you in a moment.”
After 15-20 mins, the servant came back and said –
” Maharaj ! It was the smell of the chaff. The village women in that nearby village are pounding paddy”.
The King was happy to hear that his servant could successfully identify the source.
He has tasted the best delicacies of the World but this smell attracted him like anything.
To the surprise of the servant, the King ordered him to bring the chaff for him. The King said –
“I am very happy with you. Now, go and bring me some chaff. I want to taste.”
“But Maharaj, chaff is fed to domestic animals like cows and pigs”.
said the servant.
“This is my order! Go and bring it for me” – said the King.
The servant followed the orders of the King.
He brought the chaff to the King & the King relished it.
After having the chaff, the King said –
“Listen! You are my trusted servant. Never ever disclose this incident to anyone ever in your life.
If you do disclose it to anyone, you will lose your head”

Days passed by…

Days passed by but the servant found it increasingly difficult to digest this incident. He wanted to share this secret with someone, but he could not. His stomach boated up. He stopped eating & drinking. He tried to make himself engaged in any activity so as to forget the incident but he failed.
We wanted to loudly tell this secret in a place where there is no one present.

The man sets off for a place to share his secret

He traveled near a river with the objective to share this secret. The riverbank was far off from his home. We walked for several hours and finally reached the river bank. Now, he was very happy & thought to himself –
“Thank God! Now I can share my secret with the river & the river will flow away with my secret to far off place without sharing it with anyone”.
Just as he was preparing to share, he saw 5-6 fishermen arrived in the riverbank.
The man got scared & left that riverbank immediately.
Now, he went to a cemetery to share his secret. On arriving at the cemetery, he saw that the gravediggers were present.
So, he canceled his plans at the cemetery and went to a deep foret.
The man enters into a deep forest
It was a deep, dark forest. The man was scared but he was desperate to share the secret. So, he took the risk of entering the forest.
In the forest, he saw a big tree with a big hollow in the trunk.
The man was desperate, he put his head inside the hollow trunk and whispered –
“The king eats chaff! Our King eats chaff!”
Now, he was a relieved man. It seemed like he had shed all burdens of his life. He started leading his life like all normal men.

Festival time

It was festival time at the Kingdom. Kings & renowned men from all the friendly Kingdom were invited.
Meanwhile, all preparations were underway.
The drum of the palace had become old. So, the drummers wanted to replace the old palace drum with a new one.
The King granted the demand & he ordered a new big drum for his Kingdom.

The drummer went to the forest

The drummers went to a deep forest in search of suitable wood for the drum. While looking for the wood, they found that there was a big tree with a hollow in the trunk.
The drummers felled the tree and a big drum was made from that tree.

Installation of the big drum

The new big drum was finally installed in the lion gate of the balance with fanfare.
Meanwhile, the ceremony was conducted with lots of enthusiasm. At the end of the ceremony, the drummers were to beat the drum to mark the conclusion of the ceremony.

The drummer beat the drum

As per norms, the drummers started beating the drum. Instead of the “Boom ! Boom ! ” sound, the drum uttered –
“The King eats chaff! Our King eats our chaff !”
The King got furious. He ordered to immediately throw the drum in the river.
Then the King caught hold of his most trusted servant and said –
“You … I told you not to share the secret with anyone but still you revealed the secret with the drum !”
The servant was trembling with fear. He could visualize his beheaded self in front of him.
He gathered a lot of courage and told the King –
“Pardon me, Maharaj! As promised I did not share the secret with any human being. But, I had shared it with a tree”.
Later on, the investigation revealed that the tree with which he shared the secret was felled and the drum was made from that tree.
The King did not give him any punishment. But, he was no longer allowed to accompany the King.

Humorous story of a tiger

Humorous story of a tiger

Humorous stories are always relaxing. Kids also like and enjoy humorous stories. Narrating moral stories all the time creates boredom amongst the children. While Tiger stands for courage, strength, power, etc, here I present before you a humorous story of a tiger.


There was a small village inhabited by a small number of villagers. The village was surrounded by mountains on all sides.
On the mountain lived a tiger. The tiger was ferocious. The villagers were afraid of the tiger. Whenever the tiger roared, the villagers used to tremble and went back to their homes. It was difficult to keep domestic animals as many fell prey to the tiger.

The Eventful night

It was a winter night. For the last few days, it was snowing. The tiger could not manage any food for the last few days. He was very hungry and ran down the mountain and reached the village in search of some food. He spotted a house and cam near the window of the house. A lamp was flickering inside the house.
Just as the tiger was preparing to enter the house, suddenly a baby began to cry.
The tiger waited for some time but the baby continued to cry loudly.

The tiger decides to enter the house

While the baby continued crying, the tiger got ready to enter the house.
Suddenly heard a voice of a woman say –
“Keep quiet! Keep quiet! There you see a fox coming. It has big teeth”.
Still, the baby continued crying.
Now, the mother said –
“Keep quiet! Keep quiet! There you see a black bear coming. It has its mouth open”.
Still, the baby continued crying.

The flabbergasted tiger

Now the tiger thought –
“What kind of baby is that! He is neither afraid of fox or bear! Let me peep through the window pane once and see this strange baby.”
Just as he got ready to peep, he heard the lady say –
“Look, baby! There comes the ferocious tiger. It is standing under our window”.
But the baby continued crying.
The tiger thought –
“How could that lady know that I was waiting under the window?” the tiger was so shocked hearing this that he collapsed and fainted.
After some time, the tiger got back to his senses. Fearfully, as he tried to peep through the window to see the strange baby, he heard the mother’s voice once again –
“Here you are…dried persimmons !”
To the tiger’s surprise, the baby stopped crying immediately.
There was absolute silence all around. The tiger could hear his own breathing.
The tiger thought –
“What on earth is a persimmon? It must be more dangerous and powerful than me. The baby did not have any effect on hearing the names of fox, bear, or even me. But as the mother uttered the name of persimmon, the cry stopped immediately”.

The Climax

Just as the worried and scared tiger was engrossed in his thoughts, something heavy fell on his back.
Actually, a thief had entered that house to steal a cow. It was a dark night. The thief jumped from the rooftop thinking that he had jumped over a cow. Actually, by mistake, he landed over that confused and scary tiger.
On the other hand, the tiger thought that it was that ferocious, powerful, dangerous animal-Persimmon that had landed on his back.
The scary tiger started running for his life. He ran with tremendous speed desperately trying to throw the persimmon from his back.
The thief held the back of the tiger tightly thinking that if he falls, the tiger would kill him. So, with all his strength, he held the tiger.
While the tiger was running for his life, he crossed a big banyan tree with drooping prop roots.
The thief, with every strength he had in his hands, jumped and caught hold of one of the prop roots. He was relieved as he escaped from the tiger’s back.
The tiger also heaved a sigh of relief and thanked God. –
“Thank you, God, for saving my life from the dangerous creature-Persimmon”

It was a hot summer afternoon. A peasant was driving his donkey amidst the fields. In the scorching heat of the sun, both the peasant and his donkey were tired and thirsty.
They walked several miles and on their way, they saw a big melon farm.
Tired and thirsty, it was no longer possible for the man to proceed further.
So, he decided to sit under the shade of a huge walnut tree.
The walnut tree was big and the man looked refreshed after resting under the tree.
Now, he started enjoying the beautiful views of the spreading vines of the big watermelons.
Then he looked up and saw that some tiny walnuts hanging from the highest branches of the huge tree.
He thought to himself –
“Surprising work of God! Such a big tree but the walnuts are so small in size. On the other hand, such huge watermelons hung from thin and flat vines. Why is it so? Is God’s designing correct ?”
Puzzled and confused, the peasant got lost in his own world of thoughts.
Just then, a walnut fell from the tree and hit his head!
The peasant looked up and saw that the tiny walnut which was hanging from one of the highest branches had fallen and hit his head.
He stretched out his hands high up towards the sky.
He said –
“Oh Almighty God! Pardon me! I did not understand your design of the World around us. It is so clever of you that you did not let the watermelons grow on big trees.
Had you grown those massive watermelons on big trees, I would have been dead by now”
