two jokes

Damian loves telling jokes. He's even started making up his own. Mostly they've been the kind that when he says "Get it?" you say, "Um, not really." But lately he seems to have developed a knack for real joke-making, a skill I don't possess.

Last week, he and Dan went to the zoo. They learned (among many other things) about the short lifespan of mayflies. That inspired this joke:

How do you get rid of a mayfly?

You wait until tomorrow.

Tonight over a (very) late dinner, he came up with this one:

What goes up and doesn't come down?

Your age.

Tomorrow, by the way, he will be six years old. Which I imagine is why age was on his mind. My smart no-longer-so-little boy.

Hey, i heard this today ;-)

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed.

The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.
He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?"

The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"
