Ol’ What’s-His-Name


Here’s one from my draft slush pile that I just rediscovered and found rather amusing. The timing is off, but hey….

The night before Thanksgiving my sister took her daughter to New York City to watch the balloons being blown up for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.  On the way to the city her four-year-old asked, “Mommy, do those balloons go all the way up to that ‘Church Guy?'”

“You mean God?”

“Yeah, Him!”
