he may have fleas, but he sure is funny

This is one of BR's favorite things to do. He burps and then pauses and waits for the prompt: "What do you say, BR?" Then he gets all silly and says anything that comes to mind. Usually he is inspired by anything in the near vicinity.
"Uh uh."
"Excuse me!"

Today at lunchtime he added a new one.
"BR, you know what to say..."

More lunchtime convesation today:
"Knock, knock!"
"Who's there?"
"Banana..." and so on. For like 45 minutes. Sometimes they mixed it up and instead of banana they would say, "pomegranate" or "strawberry" or "mango." Still, it got a little old, and I was staying out of it. Besides, they were entertaining themselves pretty well without my help and they were even taking turns. BR likes to repeat (immediately) any joke that L. has just told and act as if it were brand new. It's kind of pathetic, but pretty cute, I guess.
Then, they demanded that I participate. So since I couldn't come up with any really funny new knock knock jokes off the top of my head, I just said dumb stuff like "Pineapple!" "Pineapple who?" they'd ask and I would say, "Ooh, delicious pineapple for me to eat!" and they would laugh hysterically. (It's so easy!)

And then wouldn't you know BR really got swept up in the moment: "Say knock knock, mommy."
"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Pepperoni who?"
"Pepperoni pizza!"
Him, eyes wide and very happy: "Oh, please come in. Thank you very much for coming!"

Dada humor is best. Can't wait to introduce these kids to the work of Andy Kaufman.
