    Why don’t bears wear socks? Because they have bare feet!

    What do you call a one-eyed deer? I have no eye deer.


    If I am on a chair lift with some kids around 7-10 years old, I ask them how long they have been skiing or snowboarding and then ask how old they are. If for example, they say they are 8 years old, I tell them “you’re pretty old, I was only 7 when I was your age”. Interesting variety of responses from confusion to “that doesn’t make sense” from the smarter ones!
