Rhett has a joke for you.

boy has a joke It is usually starts out being told with sincere control, but by the end of the joke he is giggling so hard you probably won’t catch it.

His jokes are very funny.  So funny they can’t be told with a straight face.

Tonight he had a riddle for me.

If I took a bath faster than a chicken can fly to the moon, where would the chicken be?

I had to think about it for awhile.  Chicken location isn’t something that just comes to me naturally.

Almost to the moon?

This was met with incredulous eye rolling riddle-induced disgust…Mom!  Chickens don’t fly!

True.  True.

If I took a bath faster than a bird can fly to the moon, where would the bird be?

OK.  I am NOT going to get caught in the same trap.  Birds DO fly so I am going with my final answer…

Almost to the moon?

This was met with incredulous eye rolling riddle-induced disgust…Mom!  Birds can’t fly that high!

Oh ya.

It occurs to me now that I don’t have the answer to either riddle, but I can report that Rhett took his bath quickly this evening.

Quicker than chickens can fly to the moon.
