Lincoln had a good sense of humor, right?

(Warning, if you are at all easily offended, please stop reading right now.)

Yesterday, the boy and I were looking at grocery ads, and the following conversation took place:

Boy:  Wow, they already have Civil War fruit snacks out.

Me: (envisioning a gummy Confederate Flag) Well, that’s kind of weird .

Boy: Not really, it comes out in a few months.

Me: (realizing what he’s talking about) Oh, you mean the movie.

Boy: Yeah, what did you think I was talking about?

Me: I thought they were for the actual Civil War.

Boy: Like, here’s a Confederate soldier? 

Me:  Uh-huh

Boy: (immitating a kid) Look, I got Lincoln, he’s got a hole through his head.

Me: (stare at boy, horrified)

Boy: Too soon?

Me: (nodding head, but starting to giggle) Yeah, but hopefully Lincoln’s up in Heaven 
laughing too.
