Funny Joke: Christmas was coming, so Little Johnny’s mom and dad took him to the mall to see Santa Claus.

Christmas was coming, so Little Johnny’s mom and dad took him to the mall to see Santa Claus.

Johnny eagerly climbed onto Santa’s lap.

“Santa, this Christmas I’d like a blastin’ baseball bat tucked right under my bed, and oh, a super baseball glove to go under the sparkly Christmas tree. Plus, Santa, I’m dreaming of a lightning-fast bike, and I want it wrapped up nice and neat under a tarp in the old shed.”

Santa, taken aback, quickly pulled Johnny’s parents to the side and exclaimed, “I’ve never met a young lad with such a potty mouth!” The parents sighed, “We’re at our wits’ end; nothing seems to correct his language.”

Pondering a moment, Santa suggested, “Let’s teach him a lesson. Wherever Johnny asked for a gift, let’s place a lump of coal.” The parents nodded in agreement, hoping this plan would work.

Come Christmas day, Johnny sprang out of bed and dashed to look underneath. Spotting the lump of coal, he raced to the tree, but found another chunk of coal there. Not giving up, he bolted to the shed, and there, under the tarp, was yet another lump of coal. Johnny stepped back, scratching his head, surveying the scene.

Eventually, his parents teasingly inquired, “Well, Johnny, what surprises did Santa bring?”

Quick as a whip, Johnny flashed a grin and declared, “I reckon Santa’s left me a coal mine—and I’m off to dig for it!”
