The father was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she was old enough to ask, then she was old enough to get a straight answer.He proceeded to tell her all about the "birds and the bees." When he finished explaining, the little girl was staring at him with her mouth hanging open. The father asked her, "Why did you ask?"The little girl replied, "Mom told me to tell you that dinner would be ready in a couple of secs."IISpeedy Morris was the basketball coach and his team was having a great season. One morning he was shaving and the phone rang.
