Mensagem: 

I laughed a lot, but help me with this first sentence in the joke:

 

 

Little Johnny watched his daddy's car pass by the school playground and go into the woods.

 

I think there is ambiguity in that - What do you think?

 

The first time I read I thought that little John was going into the woods - not his father's car. I thought his father came to take him and he was having fun then he went into the woods. He didn't want to go home.

 

Send more jokes - doesn't matter the mistakes. After all I'm not sure if I'm right!!!
