A Conversation on Sharks

Nephew #3: (running to his mom, upset and on the verge of tears)
Mama, sharks can't go out of the water... But he says no, they can!
(points accusingly at nephew #4)

Mama: (to nephew #4)
Sharks can't go out of the water or they'll die.

Nephew #4: (puzzled)
But then how do they get on boats?

They don't.

Nephew #4: (tears welling in eyes)
But Mama, they HAVE to...

Honey, they can't.

Nephew #4: (pouting)
I don't wanna play this game any more.
(stomps towards tire swing)
