Peekaboo Paradox by Gene Weingarten:

“On the floor in front of us, the kids — 2, 3 and 4 year-olds — were convulsed in laughter. Literally. They were rolling on the carpeted floor, holding their tummies, mouths agape, little teeth jubilantly bared, squealing with abandon. In the vernacular of stand-up, the Great Zucchini was killing.”
