“Daddy, some people are funny, and some people are serious. Daddy’s funny.”
“Am I funny?”
“No. You’re serious.”
“Are you funny?”
“Is Bennett funny?”
“So I’m the only serious one?”
“What about your teacher?”
“Oh, good. So it’s not just me.”
“But sometimes she’s funny.”
“Am I funny sometimes?”
“Who else is funny?”
“Um… the cup.”
“The cup is funnier than me?!”
“Can I play with the iPad now?”
Finally. I have been crowned the winner.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
I bow to the bowl alongside me and thank it for some of the comedy training I have employed into my own act.
(I will use this distinction for many, many years to come, Jerry.)
And disproving Sutton’s theory, I meant to say “the CUP alongside me,” not the bowl. Clearly, the 4-year-old criteria for judging ‘funny’ isn’t always scientifically accurate.
Reblogged this on KMSRAJ51-Always Positive Thinker.
I just asked her again, “Sutton, am I funny?” This time, she said, “No… but I like your voice.”
Now THAT’S funny!
She needs to have some fun(ny) time with me –
THAT was funny, Jerry!!

I want to give you some sort of sympathetic reply, but I’m still laughing too hard. I’m sorry :p
Though young kids think the weirdest things are funny. I remember when my cousin was three, she thought it was HILARIOUS if I clapped my hands upwards in a line. Like, funniest thing ever. Go figure.
Hahaha out of the mouths of babes 🙂
The humility of parenthood!
I agree with Anonymous; eventually she’ll get your brand of humor. In the meantime, we think you’re hilarious!
