All three of the boys love telling jokes... they don't know many, so over the last few months they've taken to making up their own jokes... generally in the form of knock, knock jokes... that make NO SENSE WHAT SO EVER!
Usually Daddio and I just look at each other and shake our heads. Sometimes we will explain why that joke didn't make sense, or try to explain the concept of jokes, but it is usually lost on them.
So it was no surprise when I heard Bobcat wind up for a joke, one I thought he surely made up.
Bobcat: What do you call a maid that lives underwater?
Wow... he actually knows a joke I thought to myself, one I hadn't heard him tell before...
Bobcat (to his waiting audience of brothers): "A mermaid!"
All three are laughing hysterically, including actually falling out of their chairs with complete amusement! And then Bobcat pops up, super serious, as if he didn't just tell a joke, "But mermaids aren't real!"
Um, okay... weird kid!
