In a clip featuring Conner Floyd (Chance), Bryton James (Devon), Mark Grossman (Adam) and Michael Mealor (Kyle) — all miraculously keeping straight faces — pivotal questions are asked in good fun, questions like…

“What has more letters than the alphabet?”

“What is an astronaut’s favorite part of the computer?”

“Why don’t eggs tell jokes?”

Aaand more. To find out the goofy answers that are sure to leave you delightedly groaning, “OK, Dad! That’s a real knee-slapper ya got there,” all you have to do is press PLAY on the video above.

In response, castmate Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), exclaimed, “This is the greatest!” And if it isn’t, it’s pretty darned close. Floyd even admitted that James’ first query had gotten him. (It was Floyd’s crack about fruit on holiday left us scratching our heads.)
