“What do you call a farmer in the army?"/"E.I. G.I. Joe.”

A riddle about G.I. Joe was posted on Reddit—Jokes on November 15, 2016:

Q: What do you call a farmer in the army?
A: E.I. G.I. Joe.


“Old Macdonald’s son decided to join the army instead of farming. He is now E.I. G.I.Joe” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on August 30, 2018.

“E.I. G.I. Joe” had been sung before these jokes. “‘Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-G-I-JOE’ My 3 yr old nephew, on the cutting edge of mashups” was posted on Twitter by “bring on the dancing horses” on April 27, 2009. “Amusing mix of pop culture & kids music. Advised by a 4yr old that Old McDonald’s farm included a hero known as ‘E.I.G.I. Joe’” was posted on Twitter by Chris Noble on August 8, 2009.


Wikipedia: G.I. Joe
G.I. Joe is a line of action figures owned and produced by the toy company Hasbro.

Wikipedia: Old MacDonald Had a Farm
“Old MacDonald Had a Farm” is a children’s song and nursery rhyme about a farmer named MacDonald (sometimes known as “McDonald” or “Macdonald") and the various animals he keeps on his farm. Each verse of the song changes the name of the animal and its respective noise. In many versions, the song is cumulative, with the animal sounds from all the earlier verses added to each subsequent verse. For example, the verse uses a cow as an animal and “moo” as the animal’s sound. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 745.

Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O!
And on his farm he had a cow, E-I-E-I-O!
With a moo-moo here and a moo-moo there,
Here a moo, there a moo,
Everywhere a moo-moo,
Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O!
