(Posted by Anna--hijacking Josh's blog)
Our son wanted to participate in the elementary school talent show by telling a few jokes in a sort of comedy routine. The video I took of him was too big to load here (or some other unknown reason that it won't work to upload), so I'll list his jokes below. There were two performances: one at school for all the children during school hours and another in the evening for parents following the PTA meeting. During the school-day event the good-natured principal had to come on stage to hush the children from their continuos giggling so Henri could proceed with all his jokes. During the evening performance the 'butcher' joke laughter lasted quite a while too. 

While he and his sister had a tryout and two rehearsals to practice we have joked for years that the regular dinner guests we invite into our home get "dinner and a show", so really they've been gearing up for this for quite a while. We are grateful to the teachers who worked hard to provide this opportunity for the children and we are very proud of both of the kids for their display of courage and talent!

I’m going to tell you a few jokes.                          


1-What do you call cheese that is not yours?

Nacho Cheese


2-What nails do builders hate to hit?



3-What happened when the owl lost its voice?

It didn’t give a hoot!


4-What did the ocean say to the shore?

Nothing, it just gave a little wave.


5-I need your help with this one:

Knock, Knock.

(Who’s there?


(Olive who?

 6-What flowers do you carry with you all day?



7-How does a butcher introduce his wife?

“Meat” Patty                 


8-Why are frogs so happy?

Because they eat whatever bugs them!


9-Why do elephants paint their toenails red?

To hide in cherry trees!


10-What time should you go to the dentist?

Wow, she did good. I love how the boys get roudier when she sings "come what may"-she has a good little voice.
