RE: The Outhouse

They are made from wood.
Lew --------------------------------------- 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 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.
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.
The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in the cherry tree."

I haven't heard this one since I was a kid. Always liked it and it's popped into my head from time to time over the years. The way I remember it was that the kid's father asked the boy if he knew anything about it, and the kid said "No", so the father told him that George Washington, the father of this country, once stated "I cannot tell a lie, it was I", when asked about chopping down a cherry tree. So the kid confessed, upon which his dad took him out behind the shed. The kid objected by stating that George Washington didn't get a beating when he confessed, to which the father responded as above.
