And so it came to pass, Liz read the book aloud to Tabitha and I attempted to finish each one. Some were easy to get: "What's Garfield the Cat's middle name?" ("The") and "What does a dog have on top of his house?" ("A Woof"). And then, there were numerous jokes that were either just poorly written or missing a key word to signal the joke. For example: "What's white fluffy and barks?" ("Pupcorn") ... Pupcorn?!?! Seriously? If you're going to write that joke don'tcha need the word "movie" in there somewhere in the lead-in? If that's all that it takes to write a children's joke book, somebody get a publisher on the phone because I've got a winner.
Anyway, it inspired Tabitha to make her own jokes. "What do you do with a baker's shop?" ("You eat it"). And "What do you get when mix up cats and dogs?" ("Cats and dogs"). Great stuff. I see a career in entertainment in her future.
