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 was the only one with his hand up, so reluctantly, the teacher finally
called on him.
Little Johnny: " Ya 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 fuck with Aunt Karen when she's drunk"
