A father brought his boss home for dinner. The whole family was seated around the dining table as the father carved the roast beef.
The son looked down at the beef on his plate and said, "This is the funniest looking drumstick I ever saw!"
"That's beef," replied the mother. "What made you think it was a drumstick?"
"This morning before Dad went to work, he said he was bringing some turkey home for dinner!"

"Mom," a small girl asked, "how come men don't ever go to heaven?"
"Of course men go to heaven," her mother replied. "Why do you ask that?"
"Because all the angels I've ever seen don't have whiskers," the child said.
"That's because most men get to heaven by a close shave," the mother said.

"A small boy knocked on my door on Halloween night and said, "I'm a werewolf. Trick or Treat."
"But you're not wearing a costume," I said. "You've got your everyday clothes on."
"Yeah, well, it's not a full moon yet, is it?" the boy replied.
