And from a friend:
A little boy comes down to breakfast.
Since they live on a farm, his mother asks if he had
done his chores.
” Not yet, ” said the little boy.
His mother tells him no breakfast until he does his
chores.Well, he’s a little teed off, so he goes to
feed the chickens, and he kicks a chicken. He goes to
feed the cows, and he kicks a cow. He goes to feed
the pigs, and he kicks a pig. He goes back in for
breakfast and his mother gives him a bowl of dry
” How come I don’t get any eggs and bacon?
and why don’t I have any milk in my cereal? ”
” Well, ” his mother said, ” I saw you kick a
chicken, so you don’t get any eggs for a week.
I saw you kick the pig, so you don’t get any
bacon for a week either. I saw you kick the
cow so for a week you aren’t getting any milk. ”
Just then, his father comes down for breakfast
and kicks the cat halfway across the kitchen.
The little boy looks up at his mother with a
smile, and says,
” You gonna tell him or should I?”
