A Bradley funny ..

Driving home from school on Monday, Bradley was rather quiet in the back of the car, when all of a sudden he pipes up with:

"Mum, what's a bee-ow?"

"A what?"

"A bee-ow or maybe a bee-oo."

"I have no idea. Spell it."

"B-e-a-u."

"Oh, that's said 'bo' and it means a suitor or boyfriend."

At this point he started laughing almost hysterically.

"What's so funny?"

"The ute that just went past does repairs on boyfriends! That's funny!"

I looked for the ute in question and sure enough it was a Beaurepaires ute. (For those who don't know, Beaurepaires is a tyre outlet here in WA.) More laughter ensued until ...

"Why would you repair a boyfriend Mum? If they're broken wouldn't you just get a new one?"

It really is a throwaway society isn't it?
