    The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment:

    The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their

    Glenn 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 Andrew raised his hand and said, "Our family are farmers
    too. But we raise chickens for the meat market. We had a dozen eggs

    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#çk away from Aunt Karen when she's been drinking."
