“No, I think they’re X’s.”

“No, Daddy, boys aren’t wise.”

“He’s right about that, you know.”

“Oh yeah, well it wasn’t three wise women that went to Bethlehem.”

“Only because they each had a wife in the back of the wagon, second-guessing them across the desert.”

“Probably because they wouldn’t stop to ask for directions.”
