Finally, I managed to do a Friday Funnies post for my friend Kim at Homesteaders Heart! You better stop over there for some laughs. :)
Now, you might not find this quite as funny as I do. I happen to think my kid is very amusing...but I am just a little biased.
The other day, my son had to write a limerick for school. The first one he tried basically copied a nursery rhyme, so I suggested that he be more original and creative. His second attempt had him laughing so hard that he could hardly read it to me. It was total nonsense! It included things like Jupiter, tutus, buildings, nieces and phrases like "lava stew" - Ummm - do those go together?
I suggested that this particular limerick was quite silly and that I didn't know if it was being graded. Did he want to risk being marked down for nonsense? Yes, he absolutely did. Sigh...OK.
Later, he called out from his bedroom, "Mom, I fixed my limerick so now it makes sense!" A feeling of pride welled up in me as I thought of my son deciding to take my advice and taking it upon himself to redo all the lines of the limerick. He ran in with the "fixed" poem.
"See? I gave it a title: Senseless. Now it all makes sense!"
Okay kid...you won this round.
Maybe I'm the only one who finds his "fix" amusing. Just in case, here are some one-liners for you:
~ Never answer an anonymous letter.
~ I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.
~ Borrow money from a pessimist - they don't expect it back.
Happy Friday Funnies!
