Today is Tell a Joke Day!

Who knows where Tell a Joke Day came from, but a Friday is a great day for telling a joke! See if you can tell one of your favorite ones!

A little boy said to his teacher, “Mrs. Smith, I ain’t got no crayons!” His teacher said, “Young man, you mean ‘I don’t have any crayons.  You don’t have any crayons. We don’t have any crayons.’ Do you see what I am getting at?”   “I think so,” said the little boy. “What happened to all the crayons?”

And usually a family has silly jokes that mean nothing to anybody else and don’t make any sense. Here is one of ours.

My parents were here visiting when my daughter was very little. I forget if Grandpa was teaching her some jokes or if she was telling him a joke, but this is what she came up with:

“Why did the chicken cross the road?  To throw a tomato at the duck!”

For some reason, that stuck and has been a classic saying in our family ever since! This is something that should be written down at the time so you can remember the story precisely thirty years later! As busy as you young mothers are, try to take a second and write down these little moments because they will be treasures in later years!
