Keep in mind, you are dealing with a 4 1/2 yo. They tend to have one track minds. I know I did. Try to redirect him

If he thinks its funny once he will think it is always funny.

Find him some jokes online.

explain what differant jokes do.

I think you should listen very carefully for his next joke. If he tells a joke and gets his laugh he will add it to his repetoire. Just as his speech becomes more rich with each word or phrase he discovers his sense of humor will grow more rich with each added joke. Isn't it fun to discover a sense of humor? I was so excited when my son was ready to share his outside of the family.
