My five year old could not distinguish between a simply funny situation and a joke until now. Yesterday, with an intent to create a joke, he created one.
We bought a reasonably complex food processor.
My wife was figuring out how to make a banana smoothy using it. She mistook the plastic sheath around the blade to be the casing and did not remove it. The processor shook vigorously.
Realizing her mistake, she removed the sheath and smoothy was done.
While drinking the smoothy, my son asked: “Pappa, guess what you are drinking.”
“Wrong! You are drinking a ‘banana-and-plastic’ smoothy!”
