Kids Riddles

My three year old has asked me this riddle about 5000 times this week so I feel that I should inflict it on you:

Q: What did the bee say to the flower?

A: Hi, Honey!

I have been severly reprimanded for subtituting 'Hello' or 'Gday' instead of 'Hi' because she is firmly convinced that you have to get the punchline exactly right as opposed to her brother who takes the Granny Weatherwax approach. There is one book where Granny keeps trying to tell this story about one of those "we'll cook anything" joints where a guy walks in and orders an alligator sandwich and asks the cook to .... "do it in a hurry", "straight away", "as quickly as possible" and so on. Every time she misses the correct punchline ("and make it snappy").
