The woman and her son were away on holiday when she was stumped by a question the little boy had for her. But she would end up regretting her response to him.
She and her inquisitive young son were flying on a Singapore Airlines flight between Singapore and New York City.
It was his first time on a plane, and he had plenty of questions to ask about how everything worked on board.
There was a lag in the conversation, and he fell silent as he stared out of the window to the blue skies above and the ground many miles below.
Suddenly, he was struck by another interesting question to fire off at his mother. Follow us on Twitter @amomama_usa for more jokes.
The son turned to her and asked: "If dogs have baby dogs and cats have baby cats, why don't planes have baby planes?"
His mother thought for a moment, and when she wasn't able to think of a response to the interesting question, suggested to him that he ask the pretty flight attendant instead.
So the boy politely drew the flight attendant's attention. As she walked down the aisle, he asked her:
"If dogs have baby dogs and cats have baby cats, why don't planes have baby planes?"
The flight attendant looked between the mother and the curious little boy, eagerly awaiting her response, and instead came up with a sly plan.
She responded: "Did your mother tell you to ask me that?"
Overexcited to hear her response, the little boy quickly nodded to her.
The flight attendant smiled at the mother as she gave her a rather uncomfortable answer:
“Well then, tell your mother that there are no baby planes because Singapore Airlines always pulls out on time. Now, let your mother explain that to you!”
