And... now you pick up the auditory component - John is telling Ginger a joke:

... Vatican to meet the pope. Grumpy, for once,
seems to have a lot to say; he keeps asking the pontiff questions about
the church, and in particular, nuns.
"Your Holiness, do you have any really short nuns?"

Wait, what?

Really short nuns.

"No, my son, all our nuns are at least five feet tall."
"Are you sure? I mean, you wouldn't have any nuns that are, say,
about my height? Maybe a little shorter?"
"I'm afraid not. Why do you ask?"
"No reason." Pause. "Positive? Nobody in a habit that's about
three feet tall, two and a half feet tall?"

Two and a half feet tall?

Just go with it, Gin... anywaysNobody in a habit that's about
three feet tall, two and a half feet tall?"

"I'm sure."
Grumpy looks dejected at this news, and the pope wonders why.

So am I...

So he listens to the dwarfs as they leave the building.
"What'd he say? What'd he say?" chant the other six dwarfs.
Grumpy says, "He said they don't have any."
And the other six start chanting, "Grumpy screwed a penguin! Grumpy
screwed a penguin! Grumpy screwed a penguin!"....

Oh. my. Gawd. John, I really would have relished those two minutes I just lost. I could have used them.

Nah - I'd have just wasted your time otherwise...

Our son won't stop doing math, honey!

Not in my house mister!!! You can differentiate all you want with your little hoodlum friends, but in here it's wild guesses and rounding errors!
