Miss-13-year-old likes jokes.
She has several books of them.
She reads them aloud.
She makes me laugh.
So I thought today I’d share just one with you.
You might laugh too.
A duck goes into a store and waddles up to the manager. He asks him if he sells duck food. The manager tells him no.
The next day the duck returns and asks again. The manager still does not sell duck food. The duck leaves.
The next day, the duck returns again. He asks the same question. The manager says no and warns the duck if he asks one more time he will staple the duck’s feet to the floor.
For the fourth time, the duck goes back into the store. He asks, ‘Do you have any staples?’ The manager tells him no. Then the duck says, ‘Do you have any duck food?’
