A teacher was talking to her class about stories with morals and gave some examples from Aesop's fables. She then asked the students to give their own examples of stories with morals. Betty said, "I was playing in my sandbox and had two buckets and shovels and my friend came over and wanted to play, so I let her use one of the bucket and shovels. The moral is, always share."
"That's an excellent example, Betty," said the teacher. "Does anyone else have an example?"
"My uncle Fred was in the Army," said Johnny, "and he told me about what happened to him in Viet Nam. He said he was sleeping one night when a dozen VC came into his camp; all he had with him was a service revolver, a buck knife, and a bottle of Jack Daniels. So he drank the whole bottle of Jack, shot six of the VC with the revolver, stabbed four of 'em with his knife until the blade broke, then killed the last two with his bare hands."
"My god, Johnny!" exclaimed the teacher, "what could possibly be the moral to that story?"
Johnny said, "Don't f#@k with uncle Fred when he's drunk!"
