In This Time Of Unease, Canadian Boy Sets Up Joke Stand
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a tale of entrepreneurial spirit. Instead of a lemonade stand, a 6-year-old in British Columbia opened a joke stand at the end of his driveway. He found it a socially distant way to pass the time. And here's a sample of his material, courtesy of the CBC.

CALLAGHAN MCLAUGHLIN: What is red, white and blue?
UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: What?
CALLAGHAN: A sad candy cane.
INSKEEP: There's also this joke. What's a pirate's favorite letter? Rrr (ph). He's here all week, likely next week, too.
