6-year-old Callaghan McLaughlin had been looking forward to starting his own lemonade stand once the weather warmed up—but since the novel coronavirus outbreaks has forced the world into quarantine, he had to improvise. Rather than spend his times indoors, Callaghan decided to spread joy in his community by setting up a “drive-by joke stand” so he could make his neighbors laugh while respecting social distancing guidelines. Callaghan’s mother Kelsea says that the youngster has been using one-liners from a kid’s joke book that she bought for him six months ago.
