HOH’s One-Minute Recess: Recycled Jokes

Younger siblings are used to hand-me-down clothes and furniture.

Rep. Brad Shermanís youngest daughter is getting secondhand jokes, too.

The California Democrat and his wife, Lisa, didnít head back to the West Coast during recess because they were expecting their third child to be born Aug. 5.

On Monday, Lucy Rayna Sherman was born in Washington ó ďbut sheís really a Valley Girl,Ē a birth announcement noted. (Sherman, like, totally represents the San Fernando Valley.)

The announcement also noted that ďMother and baby are doing fine. ... And the father is expected to recover.Ē

Thatís cute. Itís also totally borrowed from the birth announcement for Lucyís older sister, Naomi.

According to a Feb. 8, 2010, article in the Los Angeles Daily News, the Shermans used those same two jokes word for word in the birth announcement for their second daughter.

Get used to it, kid. Youíre the youngest of three.

In all seriousness, HOH wishes congrats to the happy family.

(And for those keeping tabs at home: Lucy came in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces and measured 20 inches in length.)
