Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. They had to

use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the

summer,cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting

on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push

that outhouse 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. So he got 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

that cherry tree."
