A Conversation with Charlie (Age 4) About The Appropriateness of Humor

ME: Hey what do you guys want for breakfast?
HIM: I don't know.
ME: How about an english muffin with dirt all over it?
HIM: No.
ME: Or toast with worms? A big bowl of cereal with bugs crawling around inside?
HIM: Dad?
ME: Yeah?
HIM: Stop with all the jokeable things.
ME: The..the jokeable things?
ME: Yeah. Stop being so comic.

Oh man. So Charlie didn't realize you *weren't* being jokeable? Uh-oh.

The regular menu in our house is a bowl of boogers and fish eyes.
Best discussed in the market in front of stranger whilst we are at the butcher counter deciding upon our own dinner.
