"No, Daddy. She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle
After a brief pause, Daddy says, "But you haven't got
an Uncle Frank, honey!"
"Oh Yes, I do, and he's upstairs in the bedroom with
Mommy, right now!"
"Uh, Okay, then......here's what I want you do. Put
down the phone, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom
door and shout to Mommy and Uncle Frank that Daddy's
car's just pulled up outside the house."
A few minutes later, the little girl comes back to the
phone. "Well, I
did what you said, Daddy."
"And what happened?" he asks.
"Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no
clothes on and ran around screaming, then she tripped
over the rug and went flying out the front window and
now she's all dead."
"Oh my God!!!!! And what about your Uncle Frank?"
"He jumped out of bed with no clothes on too and he
was all scared and he jumped out the back window into
the swimming pool..... but he must have forgot that
last week you took out all the water to clean it, so
he hit the bottom of the swimming pool and now he's
all real dead too."
Then Daddy says, "Swimming pool???? Is this 555-7039?"
