Brings back memories

The Outhouse

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. The family had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was so hot in the summer, freezing cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy was determined that one day he would push
that old outhouse straight into the creek.

One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy Decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. He found a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.

That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why. The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it son?" The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth..."

The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in the cherry tree."

That is a neat twist to a cool story.

This was so funny and I hated our outhouse for the same reason. Our neighbor had his tipped over on every Halloween, they didn't have a son. Thanks for stopping by, your comment was funny.
