Joke of the week: A 3-year-old daughter stuck out her hand and said, “Look at the fly I killed, Mommy.” Since she was eating a big pickle at the time, I thrust her contaminated hands under the faucet and washed them with antibacterial soap. After sitting her down to finish her pickle, I asked, “How did you kill that fly all by yourself?” Between bites, she said, “I hit it with my pickle.”
