A mother and father were chatting with their eight-year-old about his future. The youngster said he'd like to attend Mount Royal, as his parents and other members of the family had.

Pleased with his response, they pressed on. "What would you like to take when you attend University?" they asked the little boy.

After giving it some thought and glancing around the kitchen, he replied, "The refrigerator, if you can get along without it."
