Smile for the day – Auntie Karen

The teacher gave her fifth grade class 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.


Michael 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.  Ashleigh, do you have a story to share?"


"Yes, my daddy told me this story about my Aunty Karen.


Aunty Karen was a flight engineer in the Gulf War and her plane was



She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle

of whisky, a machine gun and a machete.


She drank the whisky 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 daddy tell you from that horrible story?"


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