Lunch with Dad at the Mall

[EDITORIAL NOTE: This is undoubtedly an old joke that has been around the web for years, but I hadn’t read it before and when it arrived via email from my friend, John Brandt, I could resist posting it.]

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes. We decided to grab a bite to eat at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him. The kid had spiked hair in all different colors: green, purple, red, orange and blue.

My dad kept staring at him. The teenager would look and find him staring every time. Finally, when the teenager had enough, he sarcastically asked, "What's the matter, old man, never done anything wild in your life?”

Knowing my dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response - he would have a good one.

And in his classic style, he did not bat an eye: "Got drunk once and had sex with a peacock. Just wondering if you were my son."
