Because it was my brother’s birthday, our mom wanted to do something special. She called his fraternity house and said she wanted to bring a cake. The young man who took the call was very excited. "Hey, Mrs. Schaeffer," he said, "that would be great!"
The next day she drove to the fraternity and rang the doorbell. The same boy answered the door. When he saw the cake, his face fell. "Oh," he said, clearly disappointed. "I thought you said ‘a keg.’"
A mother and father read a bedtime story of a king to their five year old son. As the story concludes, the son says, "Mom, I also want five wives. One will cook, one will sing, one will bathe me..."
Mom: "And one will put you to sleep!"
Son: "No mom, I will still sleep with you."
Mom's eyes fill up with tears: "God bless you son."
Mom continues: "But who will sleep with your 5 wives?"
Son: "Let them sleep with daddy."
Daddy's eyes fill up with tears: "God bless you son."
