Silly Sunday: In the Way

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

  1. Post a joke.
  2. Link Up with the URL to your joke in the Linky Tools Widget.
  3. Read my joke.
  4. Leave a comment to tell me how much you enjoyed my joke.
  5. Try and visit a few others participating in Silly Sunday.
  6. Go to Sandee's site, linked above, and get the Silly Sunday code for your blog, too!

Kids can say the craziest things, whether little or big.

"I hate the world!  I'm going to go get ice cream!" Bigger Girl once said.

Tee Boudreaux, when he were a li'l guy, weren't no exceptin' to dat.

One day his cousin, Emeline, come to visit an' tell de fam'ly she goin' get married.

She say, "My cousin on my  Mère's side, Belle, she goin' be my flower girl.  So Tee, seein' as you be my cousin on my Père's side, you know what you goin' be?"

"I know!" say Tee, ver' excited.  "I gets to be de ring barrier!"
