Easy Joke Five

"The Perfect Son"
This joke uses "misdirection". The language gets us to think one way, so in the end we get a surprise. Enjoy!
Woman A told Woman B, 'I have the (1) perfect son'.
Woman B asked, 'Does he (2) smoke?'
Woman A answered, 'No, he doesn't'.
Woman B: 'Does he drink (3) whiskey?'
Woman A: 'No, he doesn't'.
Woman B: 'Does he ever come home late?'
Woman A: 'No, he doesn't'.
Woman B: (4) 'I guess you really do have the perfect son. How old is he?'
Woman A: "He will be six months old next Wednesday' .
(1) he has no bad points (he is 100% good!)
(2) smoke cigarettes (tobacco)
(3) very strong alcohol
(4) she believes it must be true
Of course Woman B believed Woman A's son was grown up. Since she believed it, we also believed it. Surprise!
