The humour of the kids

Earlier this week, I was travelling on a crowded train on the London underground and overheard two young school girls telling each other silly jokes.
The first asked: “What’s the fastest drink in the world?” After a pause, she added: Milk – it’s pasteurised before it’s down your mouth.”
The second responded: “OK. What’s the fastest food in the world?” After a slight interval, she announced: “Too late – it’s scone.”
I thought that these jokes were so funny in a schoolyard way that I leaned over and told them a joke to share with their friends: “Why would you never starve in the desert? Because of all the sand which is there.”

    You and I are living proof that we have never lost our childish sense of humour.
    I still tell ‘knock knock’ jokes.
