So my 8 yr. old son is cursed with a not normal father.
So to give a little back story, I worked for 19+ years in biomedical research and have been trained to work with everything from Zebra fish to great Apes.
So here is the Abbot and Costello routine in the car on the way home form school this afternoon.
How do you repair a gorilla?
It depends on the situation.
Son: NO Dad! Its a joke.
So how do you repair a gorilla?
Well first you have to observe the monkey for injuries?
No DAD! Would you answer my question!
No you did not!
Did you not ask me how to repair a gorilla?
Yes but you did not answer!
Yes I did. I told you the first step in caring for a gorilla!
No Dad. It's A joke! How do you repair a gorilla?
I told you.
Son: NO YOU DID NOT! ITS A JOKE! How do you repair a gorilla?
It depends on the type of injury and how the Veterinarian cares for the injury.
No Dad, its a joke! What tools do you use to repair I gorilla?
Dad: Oh! OK! well that depends on the type of injury and the surgery that will be required to do the repair.
DAD! ITS A JOKE! Would you just answer me question?
Son: How do you repair a gorilla?
That would depend on what's wrong with it?
Son: DAD! ITS A JOKE! YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO SAY I DON"T KNOW and then I say A monkey wrench.
Dad: But I already answered you.
Silence for a moment then.
Son: IT was a joke! I guess I will ask Grandma!
Dad: Why not your mother?
Son: Because she will tell me to ask you , because you worked with monkeys!
Dad: That would not be very helpful.
Dad: Using a monkey wrench. You would have better success using hemostats and forceps!
Just drive me home!
IT was just too fun to do that to him.
