Have Your Parents Tell You A Story With A Moral At The End.

on January 4th, 2002

A fifth grade teacher asked her students, as an assignment, to have their parents tell them a story with a moral at the end. The next day the kids came back one by one to tell their stories.

Ashley said: "My father's a farmer and we have a lot of egg-laying hens. One time we were taking our eggs to market in a basket on the front seat of the pickup, when we hit a big bump in the road all the eggs went flying and broke and made a mess." And what's the moral of the story, the teacher asked. "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." Very good, said the teacher.

Next little Sarah raised her hand and said: "We are farmers, too. But we raise chickens for the meat market. We had a dozen eggs one time, but when they hatched we only got ten live chicks, and the moral to this story is: Don't count your chickens before they are hatched. "That was a fine story, Sarah."

Michael, do you have a story to share? Yes, Ma'am. My daddy told me this story about my Aunt Karen. Aunt Karen was a flight engineer in Desert Storm and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle of whiskey, a machine gun, and a machete. She drank the whiskey on the way down so it wouldn't break, and then she landed right in the middle of 100 enemy troops. She killed seventy of them with the machine gun until she ran out of bullets. Then she killed twenty more with the machete until the blade broke. And then she killed the last ten with her bare hands. "Good heavens," said the horrified teacher. "What kind of moral did your daddy tell you from that horrible story?" "Don't fuck with Aunt Karen when she's drunk!"
