What I find humorous in the story is Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones dragged Roger by his head to her house. I found it very funny when the old lady kicked Roger right in the butt.
The question “Does Roger have a home, parents,or food?”, this a serious tone to the story. Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones was trying to teach Roger that it is not right to take what does not belong to you. The Old lady was firm in her believes that by doing right by all, even if they do wrong to you, is the way of the Lord.
I think that meeting Mrs.Jone will be a turning point for Roger because she showed how important kindness and treating each other as you would wish to be treated is through out life.
When I have dropped things, a stranger has helped me to pick them up.One time I got lost in the store and a clerk pointed out where my mom was at.
