Geese in an Uneven V

A couple of weeks ago I was walking into church with the girls when one of our elders met us outside. He pointed to Babykins the flocks of geese flying north high above our heads. As Babykins excitedly watched the birds, the elder asked me, “You know how geese always fly in a “V” shape?”

“Oh, yes,” I replied.

The elder continued his question, “Have you ever noticed how one side of the “V” is always longer than the other?”

“I have, actually!” I said.

“Do you know why that is?” the elder asked in a tone that implied that he knew the answer.

“No, do you?” I asked,¬†curious about the reason.

“Why, yes,” the elder gleefully stated, “It’s because one side has more geese than the other!”

I don’t know which is worse: The joke or the fact I found said joke genuinely funny.¬†
