A child overhears his parents fighting

Jane was furious at him for his selfish attitude and threw an orange at him.

John picked up a plate and threw it at the wall. It exploded into a thousand pieces.

"A plate? I throw an orange and you throw a plate?" Jane screamed at him.

She grabbed the vase off the table and heaved it at him. He ducked just in time and it exploded against the wall.

A little voice called out from the kitchen. "Mummy, are you and Daddy getting a divorce?"

"Yes," yelled mum and dad together.

They both laughed. Finally they agreed on something.
