This is only funny if you have seen Toy Story a million and a half times and know the lines by heart...

Ethan brought me an Army Man today.

He was missing one leg.

{That, incidentally, is because one of my children left him on my kitchen floor--again--and I stepped on him and snapped it off. Right at the knee, poor bugger. Thankfully, I did not injure myself due to the fact that I had my hard-soled house shoes on. Otherwise, heads may or may not have rolled around here.}

"Uh oh, Mommy.....uh oh." Ethan said.

I looked down to see Ethan with the injured soldier in his hands.

"Yeah, buddy....I know. That happened the other day. Mommy accidentally stepped on him, and now he doesn't have a leg. We're going to have to throw him away."

"NO! No, Mommy!!" Cameron hollered from the other side of the family room.

"Cameron, he's broken. You can't play with him like this, it's dangerous. He needs to go in the garbage."

"But Mom," he replied, "a good soldier never leaves a man behind!!"
