A young boy asked his father if he knew the capitol of Delaware, his father didn’t know. The father, trying to save face quickly, changed the subject and told his son not to over feed his guinea pig. The ploy didn’t work.
The boy then asked his father another question he didn’t know the answer to. The father said, I may not know the capitol of Delaware but I do know what sis boom bah is. The son asked, "What’s that?"
The father replied, "It’s the sound you’ll hear if your guinea pig explodes."
This guy just sat around, snapping his fingers. Wherever he went, he kept snapping his fingers. People were beginning to get annoyed. Finally a man walked up to him and asked him why he kept snapping his fingers.
"To keep the elephants away," was the reply.
"Elephants? There aren't any elephants within 1,000 miles of here!"
"Then it must be working!"
