  • A flea and a fly in a flue
    Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
    Said the fly, "let us flee!"
    "Let us fly!" said the flea.
    So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

  • These are kinda tongue twisters, just silly alliterations I made up to help my kids practice pronouncing the sounds they were working on in Speech therapy :)

    Kicking Kangaroos Kiss Koalas
    Red Rhinoceros Run Really fast
    Ten Tired Turtles Tango Tonight

    um, there were more but I can't remember em, lol they probably change every time we play the silly word game anyways! Would love someone to come up with more for us though! My 5yo dd now is working on "W" and "Th" and still having a bit of trouble with Rs and Ks, she substitutes the "T" sound for Ks a lot :-/

  • Kristi- Yes, Brain! NARF!

    My riddle- There is a man who lives on the 10th floor of his apartment building. Every day, he takes the elevator down to the lobby, and goes to work. On rainy days, he rides the elevator all the way back up when he comes home. On sunny days, he only rides up to the 5th floor, and takes the stairs the rest of the way, unless there is someone else in the elevator. Why?

  • No, Pinky.  This pea contains a single helium element.  Once this
    pea is added to the Hackensack Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kicker Factory
    assembly line, every Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kicker will fill with helium
    the first time it is inflated.  Now, Pinky, here is the plan.  Remember,
    every step must be performed with precision!

    You must slit the sixth sick sheet slitter's son's sheet, secure it next
    to the toy boat from the Hackensack Socko Kicky-Sack Sack Kickers'
    picnic in Secaucus, stretch it past the sack pickers' station and the
    sock plucker's chute, and pick a sack, pluck a sock, and flick the plug,
    so I can put the pea in the plucked sock with the picked sack for
    ballast and bounce it off the rubber baby buggy bumper, into the Parker
    Packard purple pewter pressure pump.  Is that understood?

  • Why?

    Classic, he's a dwarf(or midget) or I don't know what's politically correct these days. But he can go all teh way up on rainy days because he uses his umbrella to push the button. on sunny days he doesn't bring an umbrella and can only reach the button for the 5th floor. If someone is in the elevator he asks them to push it
