Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Thursday, November 17

Food, family, fil-osophy

A boy, about to go on his first date, is nervous about what to talk about, so he asks his father for advice. The father replies: "My son, there are three subjects that always work: food, family, and philosophy."

So the boy picks up his date and they go to a soda fountain. Ice cream sodas in front of them, they stare at each other for a long time, as the boy's nervousness builds. He remembers his father's advice, and quickly chooses the first topic: "Do you like potato pancakes?"

She says "No," and the silence returns.

After a few more uncomfortable minutes, the boy tries the second item on the list: "Do you have a brother?"

Again, the girl says "No," and there is silence once again.

The boy then desperately plays his last card: "If you had a brother, would he like potato pancakes?"
