The Kid Harry White Harry da Hammer The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"

The boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?"

"Yes," whispered the small voice.

"May I talk with him?" the man asked.

To his surprise, the small voice whispered, "No."

"Is your Mommy there?"


"May I talk with her?"


"Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child.

"Yes," whispered the child. "A policeman."

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?"

"No, he's busy," whispered the child.

"Busy doing what?"

"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the fireman," came the whispered answer.

Growing worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise?"

"A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice.

"What is going ON there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.

In an awed whisper the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper."

Now really alarmed, the boss asked, "Why are THEY there?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle, "They're looking for me!"
