The Moral of the Story
A teacher asked her class to think of a story which would be concluded
with a moral. The next day, she asked for the stories. Little Suzie
said "My dad owns a farm. Every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the
truck and drive into town to sell them in the market. Well, one Sunday
we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the
road." "And the moral is: Don't keep all your eggs in one basket."
Little Lucy went next. "My dad owns a farm, too. Every weekend we take
the chicken eggs and put them in the incubator. Last week, only 8 of
the 12 eggs hatched." "And the moral is: Don't count your chickens
before they've hatched."
Next came little Johnny. He said, "My Uncle Ted fought in the Vietnam
war and his plane was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped before
the crash, but could only take a bottle of scotch,a machine gun and a
machete. On the way down, he drank the bottle of scotch. When he
landed he found himself in the middle of 100 Vietnamese soldiers. He
shot 70 with his machine gun, but ran out of bullets, so he pulled out
his machete and killed 20 more. Then the blade broke, so he killed the
last ten with his bare hands" The teacher was a little shocked, but
asked what the moral could be. Johnny said "Don't screw with Uncle Ted
when he's been drinking."
