Who Al­so Sweats Through His Pants

Babysit­ter: My dog gets hot walk­ing.
Sev­en-year-old: How can you tell?
Babysit­ter: He sticks his tongue out, and his fur is re­al­ly warm.
Sev­en-year-old: Some­times when I’m out in the sun my hair feels hot.
Babysit­ter: Yeah, now imag­ine you have hair all over your body.
Sev­en-year-old: Like my dad.

Next Step: Get­ting Rid Of This Mul­let

Woman #1, watch­ing hobo in a dress: You know, I fi­nal­ly feel like I’m a met­ro­pol­i­tan woman.
Woman #2: Why? Got­ten used to the traf­fic, crowds, pol­lu­tion and pub­lic trans­porta­tion?
Woman #1: Well, yeah, but that’s not why. See that guy in that dress over there? When I first came to the city, I would have been amused or shocked to see some­thing like that. Now, my first re­ac­tion is: “Those shoes and socks don’t go with that dress–and Ma­cy’s is­n’t that far away. Dude, go get some pumps!” I mean, how of­ten do you think I would have thought to say “dude, go get some pumps” when I was still liv­ing in Ohio? I’m liv­ing the dream!
