Just two this time. One cute, one funny. Enjoy!

Is that the statue made out of liberty?
– Girl Spawn (4 years old), upon seeing the Statue of Liberty on TV

There are really only 49 states. Hawaii isn’t a state, we just own it. Everyone considers it a state because it’s owned by the country. That’s all
– One teenage boy to another at the grocery store. Yikes!

Blurbs from the Land of Chimpanzees – January edition

“Josh Groban Sings Kanye’s Tweets”
– This was typed (clicky) rather than spoken, but it is absolutely hilarious. The title of the article was more attention grabbing (in a weird way) than funny, even though it did make me immediately think of bizarre insults or something Josh and Kanye should have kept behind closed doors. The video included in the article is definitely worth viewing – even if you’re not a Josh Groban fan!

“If you don’t offer shipping, how am I supposed to ship this to my relatives?”
– At a seasonal mall kiosk. The lady was, with more courtesy than I could have mustered, very kindly referred to three places: the post office, UPS, Fed-Ex. She still insisted that a seasonal, low-budget mall kiosk with limited facilities and resources should offer shipping – as a *free* service.

Blurbs from the Land of Chimpanzees

Just a few things I’ve heard recently that were a little strange and funny to me. The first in what I hope to be an irregular series of posts… Why? Because it makes me laugh.

“When I die, I‘m going to turn into a grox [Dr. Seuss creature]. Then I’m going to rule the world!”
– by 4 year old Girl Spawn. Not entirely sure why she’s thinking about death or ruling the world at her age, but it made me laugh. It also made me wonder if she’ll need therapy in a few years

“Do you have a napkin I can borrow?”
– You can’t borrow one. You can have one, though. I don’t want it back!

“The white man purchased Alaska in 1969!”
– Said by a pasty white guy who claims to have been raised in Alaska. Hey Mister, you might want to subtract 102 years from that date. By the way, what color were the people who sold Alaska to the US?
