When the kids were little a way to make them laugh was to pick up a banana and pretend to have conversations with President Obama, or other high level people.
This was possible because the kids had seen old movies and television shows where a landline handset had been used.
I enjoyed pretending I had been called to instruct the president how to make pancakes or handle rowdy senators.
Sadly, those days are long gone. Now, my children take the schtick to the next level by recreating those times in over-earnest playfulness (or smartassery).
