It can be said that children don't listen very well, and even when they do, their capacity for understanding is limited to their experiences. But sometimes, they can surprise us.

That's why jokes involving little boys always seem to have a darker twist at the end – it must be the frogs and snails and puppy dogs' tails that add mayhem to the mischief!

A young boy walked to the corner store to pick up a large-sized bottle of laundry detergent. The grocer walked over and asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry to do.

“Oh, not laundry, Sir,” the boy said. “I’m going to wash my dirty cat.”

“But you shouldn’t use this to wash your cat,” the kindly shopkeeper warned. “It’s pretty powerful and if you wash your cat in this, he’ll get sick. In fact, it might even kill him.”

But the boy could not be deterred and he went ahead and bought the detergent anyway.

About a week later, the boy was back in the store to buy some candy.

The grocer politely asked the boy how his cat was doing.

“Oh, he died,” the boy said casually.

The grocer, trying not to be an I-told-you-so, said he was sorry the cat died but added: “I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your cat.”

“But,” the boy replied. “I don’t think it was the detergent that killed him.”

“Oh? What was it then?”

“I think it was the spin cycle!”

Here's another joke involving the same store owner. This poor grocer sure has his fair share of little boys to deal with.

Johnny hung out at the corner store with a bunch of other boys. The owner didn't know what Johnny's problem was, but boys would constantly tease him.

They would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove it, sometimes they would offer Johnny his choice between a nickel and a dime and John would always take the nickel.

One day, after Johnny grabbed the nickel again, the kindly grocer took him aside and said: "Johnny, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or what?"

Slowly, Johnny turned toward the store owner and a big grin appeared on his face and he said,

"Well, Sir, if I took the dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I have saved $20!"
