On humor and cannibals

The other day I had a very memorable conversation with Chase. It went a little something like this:

Me: Ha ha hee hee ha ha ho!

Him: Hey, Mom, what's so funny?

Me: I'm just reading a really funny blog post.

Him: Is it about man-eating sharks or cannibals filled with bacteria?

Me: Umm, no.

Him: Oh. [Shoulders shrug in disappointment]

Although, had I been reading a post about either of those topics, I'm sure it would have been hilarious.

There is almost nothing funnier than cannibals filled with bacteria. I think about those every time I need a good chuckle.

He is hilarious... and he doesn't even know it! I can just picture him asking this... so serious.

Like how I am catching up on all your posts?

I need to stop hibernating.

I just read a post the other day about how if one were to eat a human, they would need him/her cooked extra crispy.

(I'd need mine with barbeque sauce)

My family doesn't get my blog humor either. :)

And now I am sitting here laughing out loud at a funny blog post.

Those cannibals need to boil their people longer.

Yeah...nothing like man-eating sharks. Those things are total knee-slappers.

So after running across a fascinating blog post about man-eating sharks I had to come back and report that while not hilarious, it was rather entertaining.
