I try never to do this, but I laughed so hard that I had to share.
Mr. P: I think I want a pet dinosaur.
Me: Honey, there are no more dinosaurs.
Mr. P: Why?
Me: Well, they are all gone from the earth. When that happens, it means they are extinct.
Mr. P: Es-tinct?
Mr. P: Ex-tinct.
Mr. P: Well, then I think we should trade the skunks for the dinosaurs.
Me: What do you mean? Why are you thinking about skunks?
Mr. P: The dinosaurs went away because the skunks made it all stinky and that's not very nice. So, the skunks should go away and the dinosaurs should come back.
Me: Laughing Ooooooh, you thought that the word extinct meant that it was stinky from skunks and the dinosaurs couldn't handle the smell? Laughing harder
Mr. P: It's NOT funny!
But it is my son, it is. It seems that every day he keeps adding new dimensions to himself, and I am in awe of this little guy and his development.
