a weird conversation with my three year old

Alexis: Mom, do sippy cups lay eggs?
Me: What? No, sippy cups do not lay eggs.
A: Does water lay eggs?
M: no
A: Does milk lay eggs?
M: no
A: Does a rooster lay eggs?
M: (breathes a sigh of relief that she finally asks a normal question) No, roosters don't lay eggs, chickens do.
A: why?
M: Because the rooster is the boy and the chicken is the girl and the girl lays the eggs (sorry if I'm giving anyone an anatomy lesson...maybe I should have put a rating on this post).
A: So the rooster will get sad if it lays eggs?
M: Yes... (to myself, "because that means he's turned into a girl")

The whole conversation reminded me of a joke that I just made up.
Why'd the chicken cross the road?
To get to the other side where there was a sippy cup laying eggs!

I'm over here laughing my head off at that joke, but it's okay if none of you are, I usually find my jokes funnier than anyone else ever does. Although, I think Jeremy found it slightly funny but he won't admit it. Feel free to share your "Why'd the chicken cross the road?" jokes if you got 'em, but don't plan on topping mine!

So, I totally was on the phone with you when I read this blog. But, I thought it was soooo funny that I had to read it again. :) (I told Aaron about it the other night.) :) He got a good laugh out of it. :)
My favorite Part:"Because that means he's turned into a girl." funny!
Plus, I love that the conversation you had with your daughter "reminded" you of a joke you just "made up"!!!! Hahah!!! I don't think I could EVER top your 'why'd the chicken cross the road?' jokes!!

why'd the chicken cross the road?
to get away from the manic-depressive boarderline suicidal rooster laying eggs.

Why did the chicken cross the road? To prove to the possum that it could be done!

Admittedly, Lisa, yours was definitely funnier!
