Old joke for new Theme Day

.

City Daily Photo's Theme Day today is about DETAIL.
It reminds me of a joke from long ago during my school days in Chicago:

The teacher asks a pupil to use the words deface, detail, and defense in one sentence.
The boy answers, "Dat's easy!   De face went over de fence before de tail."
.
See other posts on Detail, more serious than mine, at the City Daily Photo October Gallery.

That's the perfect photo for your story!

Hilda said...

Groan! Hahaha!

Glad to see you still have amusing cats in your new neighborhood.

Dina said...

Hilda, no, sorry, I don't have any new cat friends in my new town. The picture is of dear old Jerusalem Hills friend Lara who died in August. I miss her.

No new cats? That is a sad state of affairs. I'm sure there will be some that find you.

Birdman said...

Hehehehehehehe
Good one!
Cats are KOOL!

Reader Wil said...

That must have been a Dutch boy, as we use "de"instead of "the"for a definite article.
Dina, I am so happy that your daughter is leaving Australia and is coming to you!

Dina said...

Wil, "leaving" Australia just for seven months, though, not forever.

The funny thing is that there is also an Italian version of a similar joke...

Wow! That's an amazing shot of your friend, Lara. It certainly captures her agility and it goes so well with your story.
