    Smile I'm Jack!

    Hello.
    What does Jack mean, when the boy, Jack says "I'm Jack!"
    I think it's a kind of pun.
    Thank you.


    Dad heard the laughing and came in the room.
    "You're happy!" Dad said.
    "No, I'm Jack!" squeaked Jack, and he laughed even more.
    Dad laughed, too.

    It's a play on words.

    You are happy.
    No, my name is not "happy", my name is "Jack".
