September 2018 Funny Stories

My friend Mitch owned a vintage British-made Austin-Healey that had the steering wheel on the right side of the vehicle’s dashboard. One day he came up with a funny prank. He rigged a fake steering wheel on the left side of the car, then dressed up Dinx, his docile, old hound, in a coat, hat and sunglasses, and placed him in front of the fake steering wheel. He then drove his car up to intersections, stopped and ducked down beneath the dashboard. You can imagine the shock and dismay of people driving up next to a car driven by a rather well-dressed dog.

My husband is an avid hunter, so I wasn’t surprised to see our 4-year-old son pretending to hunt game with his invisible gun one afternoon. After “shooting” into the air several times, he turned to me and said, “Mama, I shotted a bird, way up there.”

“Nice,” I said, “what kind?” With confidence, he replied, “A mohawk.”

After being out in the yard playing, my friend’s grandson came running into the house and said, “Grandpa, I got to go really bad!” My friend pointed to the restroom where his grandson went in without hesitation. A few minutes later the grandson came out smiling. He said to his grandpa, “Grandpa, if you are an American when you go into the bathroom and you’re an American when you come out of the bathroom, what are you when you’re in the bathroom?”

My friend had no idea so he asked his grandson, “What are you when you’re in the bathroom?”

The grandson smiled broadly and said, “European!”
