Little Johnny gave an honest yet awkward description of his mother’s actions to the Minister when he called.


Children often have a different understanding of situations and things going on around them. Their naivety is, most of the time, quite hilarious.

Little Johnny’s mother was in the kitchen trying to get the ketchup sauce out of the bottle as it had settled at the bottom and needed more pressure.

During her struggle with the ketchup bottle, the phone rang, and she asked four-year-old Johnny to answer the call while she struggled with the bottle.

Eager to be of help to his mother, Johnny ran to the living room and picked the call. After a few seconds, he told his mum that it was the Minister who had called and wanted to talk to her.

Not wanting to leave the task at hand, his mother told him to tell the Minister that she was going to place a call back to him after she was done with what she was doing.

After listening to his mother’s instruction, Little Johnny spoke into the phone and naively said: Mummy can’t come to the phone to talk to you right now, she’s hitting the bottle.”

Here is another joke about a coach giving one of his young players a bit of advice for his mother during an intense game.

During an intense game, a coach turned to one of his younger players and asked if he knew what cooperation and teamwork was.

The young boy replied in the affirmative, and the coach proceeded to tell him that it did not matter if the team lost the game, what was most important was if they won as a team.

Understanding the coach’s logic, the boy nodded and listened attentively as the coach talked about not cursing at the umpire or throwing a fuss or fighting when a strike was called against him or the team members.

When the coach was done talking to the boy and was certain he understood the message being passed across, the coach then said to the boy, “Now go over there and explain it to your mother.”

Interestingly, not only kids miss the interpretation of things. A man walked into a bar and ordered a martini with olive from the bartender.

Before drinking the martini, he removed the olive and placed it in a jar he brought with him. After doing this till the jar was full, he got up and staggered out of the bar with the jar of olives.

Stunned at this behavior, another customer turned to the barman and expressed how surprising the situation was.

Shocked at the customer’s amused tone, the bartender explained that the man’s wife had asked him to go and get a jar of olives, and this was the best way for the man to have gotten the olives and a drink at the same time.
