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 uthouse 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.

Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why.
The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the
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.
The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't
in the cherry tree."
