sunday lesson

I was locking the inmates down for the night last night and gave Carl, who's 12, a big hug (we run a very progressive penitentiary here). Adam, 11, was listening in the next cell.

#1 son: Ow. I think you broke a rib.
me: That's okay. I'm sure Adam will give you one of his.
#2 son: I don't get it.
me: Christians and Jews believe that after God made Adam, he took one of his ribs to make Eve.
#1 son: I thought Christians didn't believe in cloning.

The material for comedy alone makes having kids worthwhile.

That kid is very smart for his age, to recognize the 'rib' thing as cloning. :)
