Stories with Morals

A teacher gave her class of 11 year olds an assignment:

Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.


The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories.

Ashley said "My father's a farmer and we have a lot of egg laying chooks.
One time we were taking our eggs to market in a basket on the front seat of the car When we hit a big bump in the road and all the eggs went flying and broke and made a mess."


"What's the moral of the story?" asked the teacher.

"Don't put all your eggs in one basket!"

"Very good," said the teacher.

Next little Sarah raised her hand and said, "Our family are farmers too. But we raise chooks for the meat market. One day we had a dozen eggs, but when they hatched we only got ten live chicks, and the moral to this story is, 'Don't count your chickens before they're hatched'.

"That was a fine story Sarah. Billy, do you have a story to share?"

"Yes. My dad told me this story about my Aunty Karen. Aunty Karen was a flight engineer on a plane in the Gulf War and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle of rum, a machine gun and a machete. She drank the rum 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 father tell you from that horrible story?"

"Stay the f... away from Aunty Karen when she's been drinking"

[snigger] couldn't resist it.....

LOL and probably not far from the truth.

I didn't laugh. No ma'am. Not a snicker. Not even the thought of a chuckle. Not even the turning up of the corner of the mouth. Nope. Not me.
