A teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment to 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 hens.

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 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’re hatched.”

“That was a fine story Sarah.  Michael, do you have a story to share?”

“Yes, my daddy told me this story about my Aunt Karen.

Aunt Karen is an Apache helicopter pilot in Afghanistan and one day her helicopter was hit with a rocket.

She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle of whisky, a machine gun and a knife.

She drank the whisky on the way down so it wouldn’t break and then she landed right in the middle of 100 Taliban troops.

She killed seventy of them with the machine gun until she ran out of bullets.

Then she killed twenty more with the knife until the blade broke. 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?”

“Stay the HELL away from Aunt Karen when she’s been drinking.”

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
