Knock knock \ Who’s there? \ Ach!

Knock knock
Who’s there?
Ach!
Ach who?
It sounds like your coming down with a cold

This is a knock-knock joke. It follows the normal conventions of a knock-knock joke, so there is nothing interesting to talk about except for the punch line. The reason why the punch line is "It sounds like your coming down with a cold" is that "Ach who" sounds like "Achoo", which is the name of the noise that we make when sneezing (in American English, anyway). This is an example of onomatopoeia, and also of a misunderstanding since the jokester is pretending to misunderstand the listener's correct response to their statement "Ach".
