    funny?

    I would like to know why the next passage is funny.


    Little Johnny, burst into the house, crying his eyes out. His Mama asked him what the problem was. "Pop and I were fishing, and he hooked a giant fish. Really big. Then, while reeling it in, the line busted and the fish got away."
    "Now come on, Johnny," his mother sai d, "a big boy like you shouldn't be crying about an accident like that. You should have laughed." "That's what I did, Mama."

    Imagine what happened after Johnny laughed when his father lost the fish.
