Lost in translation

I am aware that the promised update is not up yet, but I must exonerate the bookworm immediately.

On Thursday, my sweet six year old told her aunt a joke she supposedly was told by her sister:

Why did the pig follow the chicken across the road?

answer? HE WANTED SEX

I was furious. How could my angelic seeming Bookworm tell her little sis such a dirty joke? Where did she hear it? I could not WAIT to get her home from Grandma's house to castigate her. HOW DARE SHE right?

After much confusion and righteous indignation, I finally got the real joke out of her.



Why did the chicken follow the piggyBANK across the road?

the real answer?

He wanted CENTS

Just read your comment at Rude Cactus about the senseo...the same thing happened to mine yesterday!! I checked on the senseo site and:
Why is the lever stuck in a locked position causing the lid not to open?
The pod holder is probably blocked, and may require cleaning. A vacuum may have temporarily formed under the lid. Turn the machine off, pull the lever up as far it will go and wait 24 hours before opening. Use a soft brush or a toothpick to remove the coffee grounds trapped in the coffee pod holder. If the problem persists, contact Customer Care at: SENSEO.US@Philips.com

I have to say... I think I like the joke better the way your 6-year-old told it.

And BWAH!
