Me: Hey, want to hear a joke?
Son: Okay, what is it?
Me: What’s a lion’s favourite fruit?
Son: Hmmm. People?
I couldn’t stop laughing, because of his immediate, excellent response and also because of the dawning realisation that he is closer to the truth than the joke’s true punchline; ‘st-ROAR-berry’.
‘People’ is much better.
