Should you ever find yourself with an inconsolable four year old, and his five year old brother who is not helping the situation one tiny bit, feel free to make use of this joke which I made up about half an hour ago (which doesn’t mean no one else has ever thought of it, just that I have never heard it if they did). Anyhoo, in the aforementioned situation of inconsolable-ness, it is sure to do the trick.

Knock knock

Who’s there?

Pop

Pop who?

Pop off

Is there anything more rewarding than walking down the passage being followed by the belly laughs of two bouncing boys who really should be asleep by now?
