Yesterday for lunch, Anthony — not yet 9 and still very much a kid — got a Kids Meal from Rubio’s Fish Tacos. While they serve food other than the kind that swims, their emphasis is on seafood. (He opted for the chicken taquitos and I don’t blame him. Seafood…blecch.)
As we were eating, Ann was reading the jokes printed in the sides of the Kids Meal bag. I don’t recall the first one but the second made me laugh for sure but not because it was funny.
Ann: What is the saddest fish in the sea?
Anthony (thinks): I don’t know.
Ann: The blue whale!
Anthony (seriously): Mom, a whale is not a fish; it’s a mammal.
He continued eating, grunting and rolling his eyes in the process.
So Rubio’s…your jokes might be fooling some kids but definitely not mine 🙂
