Joke 831

An eight-year-old girl is trying to check out a book entitled Advice for Young Mothers from the local library.  The librarian asked, “Now why do you want to check out this particular book, dear?”

The little girl replied, “I collect moths.”

Four-year-old Sarah asked this question from the back of the car: “Mummy, why are there more idiots on the road when Daddy’s driving?”

I was out walking with my five-year-old grandaughter Lucy. It was a perfect day – sunny with a beautiful blue sky.

“Isn’t it a lovely sky?” said Lucy. “But I wonder what it’s like in heaven.”

“I don’t know,” I said.

“No,” she replied, “but it won’t be long before you find out will it?”

“And what position does your father play in the football team, Andrew?” asked his teacher.

“Drawback,” the child replied.

Readers Say The Darndest Things

23 Nov

I don’t know if you read all of the comments on this blog, but they are often better than the posts.  My readers are a funny lot.

Yesterday, Charlie from Read Between The Minds left a You Tube clip for me to watch.  

I’ve never heard of Art Linkletter, who had a show called Kids Say The Darndest Things.  Spud, however, was on a British version called Michael Barrymore’s Kids Say The Funniest Things.  Sadly, there’s no tape of it: the show was recorded in February, along with a whole series, but never shown because there was a terrible scandal that summer, when a man died at Barrymore’s home.  The scandal ended Barrymore’s career.

The clip Charlie left is from 1959.  I cried with laughter.  

I’ll tell you my two favourite quotes after the video, because I don’t want to spoil it for you.

I loved the little girl who said that ‘Adam and Eve had a whole mess o’ babies,’ because she’s just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

And I love the logic of the little boy who told us that God’s punishment on Eve for causing all the trouble was to make her ‘a housewife.’  Out of the mouths of babes…

Thanks for a huge laugh, Charlie.
