Little Johnny and a friend were shouting at each other when Mother walked into the playroom. "You two need to quit arguing and learn to agree on things." she scolded.

Thanksgiving dinner

We visited our newly married daughter, who was preparing her first Thanksgiving dinner. I noticed the turkey thawing in the kitchen sink with a dish drainer inverted over the bird.

I asked why a drainer covered the turkey.

Our daughter turned to my wife and said, "Mom, you always did it that way."

"Yes," my wife replied, "but you don't have a cat!"
