Jokes for all occasions: hospitality

The good wife apologized to her unexpected guests for serving the apple pie without cheese. The little boy of the family slipped quietly away from the table for a moment, and returned with a cube of cheese, which he laid on the guest’s plate.

“You must have sharper eyes than your mother, sonny. Where did you find it?”

The boy replied with a flush of pride:

“In the rat-trap.”
