funniest joke in the whole world

I woke up to the kids going crazy over shoe-candy. (a late St, Nicholas day - bah, the kids don't know when it's supposed to be :P don't judge us)  Lisy, already hyped up on sugar, excitedly told Benjamin the best joke that Rachel had told her earlier. She could barely stop laughing to tell the joke:

E: "Rachel told me the funniest joke this morning. She said 'Why did the duck say to the cow?'" (yes, she did say why and not what) Not waiting for an answer, Elisa said, "and then she TOLD me!" and Lisy started cracking up all over again.

I think we still have a way to go before she quite gets jokes.

Colvert, an 8-year-old sitting in front of me, kept swinging his scripture case and hitting it against his chair during singing time. I called his name several times before he turned around and smiled at me. How could I come across as stern and serious? So I simply asked, "Why are your scriptures so loud?"

"Because they're happy to be here!" he answered.
