L: Mom, you’re smart. You’ll be able to get this. It’s a 6th grade joke.
L: Take the F out of way.
Me: (thinking for a sec). There IS no F in way. (The lightbulb comes on) Hey! Wait a minute!
L & K: Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! Get it? Get it? Say it again!
Me: You got me!
Later that same day…
Uncle Bill: Here’s a joke for you.. what’s brown and rhymes with “snoop”?
Me: Aside from the obvious?
Uncle Bill: Aside from the obvious.
The girls: Poop! Poop! Mom, you’re so dumb. It’s poop!
Me: It’s not poop! He just said it wasn’t the obvious answer!
The girls: Oh.
Me: I don’t know. What’s brown and rhymes with “snoop”?
Uncle Bill: Dr. Dre.
Me and Uncle Bill: Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!
The girls: (blank stares, shrugged shoulders) That doesn’t even make sense.
Me: Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog are rappers. They rap together.
The girls: So? Dre and Snoop still don’t rhyme. Now if his name was “Droop”..
Me: No, the raps rhyme. It’s a play on words.
The girls: Oh. But why is that funny? Poop is funnier. You and Uncle Bill have a weird sense of humor.
