counting fingers

Sometimes your family gets so big you can’t imagine having any more children. That’s exactly what happened with the woman below:

Eenie, Meenie, Minie, and George

A census taker walked up to a woman who was sitting on a porch.

After introducing himself, he said, “How many children do you have?”

The woman answered, “Four.”

The census taker asked, “May I have their names, please?”

The woman replied, “Eenie, Meenie, Minie, and George.”

Confused, the census taker said, “May I ask why you named your fourth child ‘George’?”

“Surely, because we didn’t want any Moe.”

Ha! I can definitely understand not wanting any “moe”!
