Terry’s – Joke

A  woman walks into the City Centrelink office, trailed  by 15 kids .. “WOW,”  the social worker exclaims, “Are they ALL  yours?”<>

“Yeah,  they are all mine,” the flustered mother  sighs, having  heard that question a thousand times  before.<>

She says, “Sit down Terry.” All the  children rush to find  seats.<>

“Well,” says the social worker,  “then you must be here  to sign up. I’ll need all your children’s  names.”<>

“’This  one’s my oldest – he is Terry.”<>

“OK, and  who’s next?”<>

“Well,  this one, he is Terry, also.” The social  worker raises an eyebrow  but continues. <>

One by one, through the  oldest four,  all boys, all named Terry.<>

Then she is  introduced to the eldest  girl, named  Terri. “All right,” says the caseworker. “I’m  seeing a  pattern here. Are they ALL named  Terri?” <>

Their  Mother replied, “Well, yes – it makes  it easier.  When it is time to get them out of  bed and  ready for school, I yell, ‘Terry!’ An” when it’s  time for dinner, I just yell ‘Terry!’ an’  they all  come runnin.’ <>

An’ if I need to stop the  kid who’s  running into the street, I just yell  ‘Terry and  all of them stop. It’s the smartest  idea I  ever had, namin’ them all  Terry.’ <>

The  social worker thinks this over for a bit,  then wrinkles  her forehead and says tentatively, “But what  if you just want ONE kid to come, and  not the  whole bunch<>

“I call them by their surnames!”<>
