Breaking Silence

Or breaking wind. Not sure which.

Not stopping - just need to share the joke that my son just told me, or rather to share that my eleven year old Aspergers son just told this joke at all.

A nunnery burns down and all the nuns die.
They get to the gates of heaven and God says:
"Here is a pool of Holy Water. Before you enter, you must wash every part that has touched a man."
A little sister at the back shouts:
"Quick, let me gargle first, before Sister Mary sticks her arse in it!"

Right. Not sure whether to laugh, cry or hit the bottle. Think I'll go back to playing hunt the carpet, or scrub a few kitchen cupboards, or something.

Oh dear. I'm laughing but I don't think I should be!

Annie said...

Oops! My boys have been known to come out with the odd thing like that too. Son 2 is 13 and seems to think that he's at least 20!

it's not a boy thing either... my girls come home with the strangest and naughtiest of stories occasionally (and laugh their heads off... bwahahaha...)

You know, I've been thinking, you'll have spring cleaning all taken care of so you can enjoy the pleasant weather and sunshine when it gets here.

I may need to do some cleaning around here....

Your sons joke, at least he told it at home rather than shouting it across the grocery store checkout. And it did crack me up. I am ate up with little boy humor.

Learn that one at school, did he?

doris said...

LOL

But I do wonder if he knows what it means? Never mind - best not think about that and be grateful he knew it was humour and remembered every word. I'm terrible at remembering jokes properly!

HA! That was funny! Happy Valentine's Day!

Ally said...

Yes, what Ms.Mac said! :). Glad you're still there! [*hug*].

I vote for laughing, of course. Its a funny joke, although there is another part where the first nun washes her hands... Anyway, its all progress for your son, no matter what his taste. So count it good!

Le laquet said...

it's a fab joke ~ did you manage to keep a straight face?

Badaunt said...

I want to know that, too. DID YOU LAUGH?

(I did.)

Cheryl said...

Only on the inside.
I am a cow.

I pulled my best sweet and innocent face and told him I didn't get it - could he please explain.

He ran away.

Perfect response!!

This made me laugh! And your reaction to him was great too. Thanks for sharing.

Hahaha

The question is - who told him it?
Or at least, that's what I'd have been thinking. Playground chitter-chatter?
