A telemarketer called one number, only to have the phone answered by a young boy. He asked the lad if he could speak to his father.

The lad replied his father was not home.

"Well, then, could I speak to your mother?"

"She's not home either." the lad replied.

"Okay then," asked the man, "who is home with you?"

The boy answered, "Just my brother."

"Alright then," the man replied, "may I speak with him?"

The lad said "Yes," and went to get his brother.

After what seemed like a very long time, the boy came back and said that his brother could not come to the phone.

Exasperated, the man said, "Well, why not?"

The boy answered, "Because I can't get him out of his crib!"
