Aristotle receive Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Joke Book as a birthday present recently and it has inspired him to come up with his own jokes. Here are a few he came up with recently…
Q: What do you get when you cross a dragon and a pig?
A: Roasted pork.
Q: Which dinosaur loves taking pictures?
Q: Which dinosaur is a superhero?
The next one is actually one that he came up with quite a while ago but it came to mind again when he started telling his new jokes. How apt that it is Roald Dahl that inspired his interest to create jokes.
Q: What’s a dinosaur’s favourite author?
A: Roarald Dahl.
Perhaps I should save them for Aristotle’s Marvellous Joke Book?
What Aristotle said one Sunday morning when the rain greeted him…
“Hey! Why is it raining? It’s SUN-day, it should be sunny.”
Hercules is back at school. When I picked him up from school after the first day back, we had the following conversation…
Me: How was school?
Me: What did you do?
Hercules: Play with friends.
Me: What are your friends’ names?
Don’t you love childhood? You don’t need to know anything about a person – not even their name – to be able to play with them and have fun…
The following exchange happened when Aristotle was little. To add a little background to it, he was trying to wake Daddy up to do something (don’t know what it was because Daddy can’t remember).
Aristotle: Daddy, wake up! *insert whatever it was he needed Daddy to help him with*
Daddy: I can’t.
Aristotle: Yes you can! Because you’re big and strong and fat.
Don’t you just love how children have no biases? Even being fat has good meaning. Sort of makes me wonder why we bother growing up since all the best things come from children.
With Hercules off to school and Aristotle still on holiday, Aristotle’s been given a free reign to talk to me unceasingly. The continuous, unending chatter that accompanies my day reminded me of a conversation Aristotle once had with his Dad…
Aristotle: When I grow up, I want to be a dentist like Mummy.
Dad: Really? Are you sure? Don’t you want to be a lawyer like Daddy?
Aristotle: Nope. I want to be a dentist.
Dad: Well, you know dentists don’t get to talk very much. Most of the time they have to wear a mask to cover their mouths. Lawyers, on the other hand, get to talk all day. In fact, they get paid to tell other people what to do. You sure you still want to be a dentist?
Aristotle: *pause* I think I want to be a lawyer.
Heh… I guess he recognises his strengths.
