Questions: Monks and bad people

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of my kids’ funny questions. I hate to say this, but they’re growing up and being less stupid inquisitive. But we still get one or two little gems from them…

LG age 7 1/4: Can sick be any colour?

B2 age 9 1/2: Do you think there’s ever been a job share between a male teacher and a female teacher?

LG age 7 1/4: how do you say ‘hello’ in African? I think it begins with a J.

B1 age 11 3/4: Why are people whose names begins with S P R always bad people?

B1 age 11 3/4: I’m the only person in my RE class who could be a Buddhist monk.

B2 age 9 1/2: When germs die, do they leave a corpse?

Going to the theatre to see Billy Elliott, you can tell my uncultured kids are more used to football than the theatre…

B2 age 9 1/2: You can get an ice cream in half-time.

LG age 7 1/4: What time do the gates open?

Wot So Funee?

  1. Brilliant.

    My mum declined any snacks at the cinema last year because she was going to get an ice-cream when they changed the reels? Clearly hadn’t been to the cinema this side of 1980.

  2. The answer to LG’s first question is probably yes: I once had the ‘pleasure’ of cleaning up a little girl’s bright pink sick in Woolworths.

  3. The gates opening made me laugh 🙂 I’d love to know why he thinks he could be a Buddhist monk!

  5. These are all so funny! I think my brother and I used to say half-time at the theatre, more used to going to the footie!

  6. Thanks very much, everyone!
    Apparently the reason he could be a Buddhist monk is because he’s a vegetarian. I suspect there is some other stuff involved in being a Buddhist monk too!
    Apparently, the S P and R thing is all the letter together – specifically Eunice Spry I believe (google her if you don’t know who I’m talking about).
    Sorry to hear you had to do that, James. Yuk! Too much pic ‘n’ mix?
    After so many years of these sorts of questions, Jaime, I am mainly resorting to just saying ‘I don’t know’. Cop out, I know!
