The other day my whole family was riding somewhere in our van, when over the radio came some mention of a display of the Qumran scrolls, a.k.a. The Dead Sea Scrolls.
"What?" said my 12-year-old son, looking most puzzled.
"The Dead Sea Scrolls," I said. "Ancient scrolls stored in a cave by the Essenes, copies of Leviticus and stuff. You know."
"Oh!" he said, as the light dawned. "I thought they said 'dead sea squirrels,' and I was wondering what a sea squirrel was, and why they had dead ones on display."
