On Top Of Things

Grandfathers don’t know everything!


Little Johnny was 4 years old and was staying with his grandfather for a few days.

He’d been playing outside with the other kids, when he came into the house and asked , “Grandpa, what’s that called when two people sleep in the same bedroom and one is on top of the other?”

His Grandpa was a little taken aback, but he decided to tell him the truth. “Well, Little Johnny, it’s called sexual intercourse.”

“Oh, OK” Little Little Johnny said, and he went back outside to play with the other kids.

A few minutes later he came back in and angrily said, “Grandpa, it isn’t called sexual intercourse, it’s called Bunk Beds. And Jimmy’s mom wants to talk to you.”
