Our babysitter Sascha’s family got a new kitty! An orange tabby! They named him Livingston or Sir Livingston, if you will. Her brother doesn’t care for the name Livingston and calls him Ston or Stan, instead! Giles decided to do him one better and suggested they call him Sir Standsalot!
I must say I rolled when he made this joke on Sir Lancelot! I think the impetus came from a joke book we have been reading, which frequently invokes a play on words. I then have to translate or explain the exact reason why the joke, which is not immediately funny to him, is actually funny indeed! I guess all that ‘splaining is paying off!
Now just try to make one up like that. I dare you!
