The service area was located on a main highway leading to the beach. The pump attendant was accustomed to seeing tired and sunburned occupants in the cars that pulled in to tank up.

When a rusty old van containing a very tired looking couple and six screaming children pulled into his station, the attendant tried small talk to cheer the occupants.

"Hope you had a good day at the beach!  Nice looking kids there.  Are they all yours or is this a picnic?"

Wearily, the driver replied, "Yes they are all mine and it's NO picnic!"
