Ernie: Did you see the magazine Daddy left in the bathroom?
Me: (panicked) What magazine?!
Me: (relieved) That’s okay. He can read what he wants.
Ernie: But its . . . its . . . the word I can’t say that begins with a “P”.

Me: Why? For looking at a magazine?
Ernie: Men who read that stuff want to find younger, skinny wives.
