"Thems are the stupidest people I have ever met!"

A discussion with my five-year-old son at summer camp, after his first night in the cabin:

Mom: How do you like your new cabinmates?

B: Thems are the stupidest people I have ever met!

Mom: They seem nice! Why would you say that?

B: Well, N. farted on a piece of gum before he gave it to me.

Mom: Oh. Did you chew the gum?

B: Well, yeah. It was my first piece of gum ever; come on! OF COURSE I chewed it.

Mom: And what about K.? Is he nice?

B: He's the second stupidest person in the whole world. N. is the first. He's so mean to me!

Mom: What does he do?

B: Well, when I am sleeping in the night, he climbs up to my bed and punches me in the head! I never wake up, but I think he's doing it.

Mom: You said you don't wake up?

B: No, I stay asleep! I'm tired from running around and stuff. He's gotta stop punching me in the head while I am sleeping, though. That kid is a rotten kid.

Note: Both N. and K. were determined to be sweet and decent children, and the three became fast friends.

ROFL! That kid of yours sounds like a hoot. Who needs sitcoms when you've got fun like that going on?
