A Joke?

Something said or done to evoke laughter or amusement, especially an amusing story with a punch line.

 Grandma GiGi always has her freezer stocked with popsicles for her grandbabies. The boys have been getting them as a treat if they eat their dinner (a little bribery always works). Well, these particular popsicles themselves come with an extra treat as well, jokes written on the sticks. They are simple and silly jokes that Pat and I read and then burst out into exaggerated laughter. The boys both then laugh as though they get the jokes (or maybe they are laughing at their nerdy parents...hmmm?). Anywho, Jack has been telling his own version of a joke, for example:

What did Jack and Ty say to the elephant?
Where's the turtle?

What did the glass say to the toothbrush?
Where's the water?

What did the bird say to the other bird?
Do you have any toast?

They make absolutely no sense whatsoever, right? No amusing story with punch line...well, not exactly. But, he does say them as though there is....he thinks there is. As his parents (and #1 fans) we still do the exaggerated nerdy laugh as though we get it. This then makes him laugh (at us, maybe?) and tell another joke and another and another. It's actually a very sweet ritual evolving at the Myers dinner table.
 I love this boy.

And something that made me really laugh..out loud. 

Owen's curiousity.
I love this boy.
