In a classroom of third graders, the teacher says to the kids, ?Today, class, we
will be telling stories that have a moral to them.? She explained what a moral
to a story was and asked for volunteers. Little Suzie raises her hand.
Suzie: ? I live on a farm and we have a chicken that laid 12 eggs, we were
excited to have 12 more chickens but only 6 of them hatched.?
Teacher: ?That?s a good story, now what is the moral??
Suzie: ? Don?t count your chickens before they are hatched.?
Teacher: ?Very good Suzie, anyone else??
Ralphie: ?Yes teacher, I was carrying some eggs I bought for my mom in my
bicycle basket one day and I crashed my bike and all the eggs broke.?
Teacher: ?That?s a nice story, what is the moral??
Ralphie: ?Don?t put all your eggs in one basket.?
Teacher: ? Very good Ralphie, anyone else??
Little Johnny: ? Yes teacher, my Aunt Karen is in the army and when she was in
the Gulf War, she parachuted down with only a gun, 20 bullets, a knife, and a
six-pack of beer. On her way down, she drank the six pack. When she landed, she
shot 20 Iraqis and killed ten of them with her knife.?
Teacher: ?Very interesting, Johnny, what is the moral to your story??
Little Johnny: ?Don?t f**k with Aunt Karen when she?s drunk.?
