We were having dinner with my nephew the other night and the conversation steered toward his numerous relationships.

He replied with that standard chauvinistic response, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"

My nephew stammered, "Exactly! I agree. Wait a minute..."

That's my girl.
