Once there was a little boy who lived in the country…

A small boy who lived in the country once existed. The young child detested using the outhouse since it stank constantly, was sweltering in the summer and freezing in the winter.

The child made up his mind to push the outhouse into the stream one day, as it was situated on the bank of one.

After a springtime downpour, the creek grew, and the young boy decided that it was time to push the outhouse into the creek. He then grabbed a big stick and began to push.

At last, the outhouse floated away after toppling into the creek.

That evening, his father informed him that they would be heading to the woodshed following dinner. The young lad inquired as to why, realizing that meant a spanking.

In response, the father said, “Today, someone pushed the outhouse into the creek.” You were the one, didn’t you, son? The boy gave an affirmative response.

He paused for a bit before responding, “Dad, I read in class today that George Washington cut down a cherry tree and he got away with it because he told the truth.”

In response, the father said, “Well, son, that cherry tree didn’t contain George Washington’s father.”
