A Fine Wit
My almost-four-year-old son is working on the finer points of humour. He often comes up with hilarious lines, but most of the time his jokes are unintentional. Sometimes, though, my son invents his own punchline. Most of his jokes are just plain weird. His jokes are funny simply because they are so bizarre ...
"Hey, Daddy," my son called out at lunch time today, "What's the difference between an elephant with two tongues and a dead elephant with two tongues?"
"Umm, I don't know," my husband replied, "Could it be that one of them is dead?"
My son grinned at his daddy and winked over the rim of his juice cup.
And that was the joke.
