My brother's a great kid. A little naive, but he is still a nice kid. More importantly, he means well. Still, I get a real kick out of the innocence of youth.

A while back I was at my local video store perusing the merchandise. An avid fan of comedies, I was pacing up and down the aisle searching for a film. My brother, who was 7 or 8 at the time, was accompanying me. He stopped and (to my horror and embarrassment) began to look at the box for a comedy entitled, "Orgazmo." The cover, sporting a superhero with an enlarged silver phallus, simply attracted my young sibling for the plain fact that it depicted a superhero.

Not knowing a single thing about the movie held in his hands, he began to examine it. Wanting to diffuse a potentially embarrasing situation (this was a crowded video store), I began to lead my brother away from the dirty video. Then, in the loudest possible voice my brother could muster, he said, quite innocently, "OGOZOMO??!! What kind of a movie is this?!" At that point my patience was lost and I angrily put the video back on the shelf. I embarrasingly left the video store dragging my bewildered brother behind me.

Another such incident involves my brother's science class. He came home the other day giggling over the fact that his teacher had said the word (oh boy), "SEX," during a lesson. The rest of that evening I was forced to hear random interjections of that dirty little word at every possible moment, followed of course by his giddy giggling. Eventually my brother got bored of just saying the plain old word, "sex," and tried variations of it. I had to interrupt him during my personal favorite of these variations, which was the phrase, "sexual kissing." I then decided to take a moment and ask my brother just what exactly he thought sex meant. He giggled for a moment (of course) then leaned in and said in a secretive voice, "It means kissing rapidly." He started in with the giggling again. This was too much. I laughed out loud, patted him on the head, and left the room.

Funny little piece
Hey now, this was pretty good. It reminds me of those little snippets of humor you find in "Reader's Digest," like "Life in these United States." They're written in that style. Actually, You might want to send one or both of them in. They pay fairly well, I think $500. Heck, it's worth the gamble.
