Friday foolishness from Christina (and me)

It's been another busy day, and I'm a bit fried from running errands and doing laundry. Christina suggests that I moodle some silly jokey riddles, and that seems about right for today. So here goes:

Q: When ducks fly in a V, why is one side of the V longer than the other?
A: Because it has more ducks.

Q: What has four legs, is big, green, fuzzy, and if it fell out of a tree it would kill you?
A: A pool table.

Q: What do you call a fish with no eyes?
A: A fsh.

Q: What do you call a video of pedestrians?
A: Footage.

Q: Why did the cupcake crash his car?
A: Because he was baked.

Q: What did one cupcake say to to the other cupcake?
A: Nothing, silly. Cupcakes can't talk.

Q: Why do ducks have flat feet?
A: To stamp out forest fires.

Q: Why do elephants have flat feet?
A: To stamp out flaming ducks.

Q: What's black and white and goes round and round?
A: A dizzy panda caught in a revolving door.

Q: How many elephants can you fit in a Volkswagen?
A: Four. Two in the front and two in the back.

Q: How many dizzy pandas can you fit in a Volkswagen?
A: None. It's full of elephants.

Q: How can you tell there's an elephant in your refrigerator?
A: By the footprints in the butter.

Q: How can you tell there are two elephants in your refrigerator?
A: You can hear them giggle when the light goes out.

Q: How can you tell there are three elephants in your refrigerator?
A: It's hard to close its door.

Q: How can you tell there are four elephants in your refrigerator?
A: There's a Volkswagen full of dizzy pandas parked outside.

Okay, so they're not all Christina's jokes, but the majority are. It wasn't so long ago that our girls would sit at the kitchen table, swinging feet not reaching the floor, and tell little people riddles with punchlines that pleased them, but didn't actually work. For example:

Q: What did the cucumber say to the tomato?
A: Hello, how are you?

Q: What did the picture say to the wall?
A: You have nice wall paper.

I miss those days. Everybody grew up too fast, and I rarely hear riddles any more, so this moodling is in appreciation of that childlike sense of humour, even (or perhaps especially) when it doesn't make sense.

Ask a little person for his or her favourite riddle, and have a good weekend!
