I CANNOT TELL A LIE
Indian Father lines up his
three sons. "One of you
pushed outhouse over cliff,
two nights ago. Which of
you did it?" "Not me" "not me!"
"Not me!!!"
"Come on, I promise not to
punish you. Who did it?"
"Not me!" "Not me!" "Not
me!" "Let me tell you story of
great American hero,
George Washington. When
he was a boy, he chopped
down a cherry tree. His
father came to him and asked, 'George, did you
chop down that cherry
tree?' 'I cannot tell a lie,
father, I chopped down the
cherry tree,' said little
George. 'You should not have done
that, but since you told
the truth, I will not punish
you.' And George
Washington grew up to be
President of the United States!"
"Now I ask you. Who pushed
outhouse over the cliff?"
"Not me!" "Not me!" "I
cannot tell a lie, father, I
pushed the outhouse over the cliff."
"!@#$%!!!" (The father
beats up the son who
pushed the outhouse over
the cliff.)
"Why did you beat me up? When George Washington
told the truth, his father
did not punish him!"
"George Washington's
father wasn't IN the tree
when George Washington chopped it down!" THIS PICKIN??TTON WORLD A guy is standing in the
middle of the ring. Someone
wanders in, stage left,
carrying a boombox.
"Hey, nice radio! Where'd you get it?"
"Pickin' Cotton" and he
continues wandering off
stage right.
Another guy wanders in
wearing a fancy shirt, stage left.
"Wow, cool shirt! Where'd
you get it?"
"Pickin' Cotton" and he
wanders off stage right.
Another guy wanders in wearing bright pants and
fancy shoes, stage left.
"Awesome shoes, man.
Where'd you get them?"
"Pickin' Cotton" and he
wanders off stage right. A guy limps in, stage left,
beat up and wearing
nothing except a towel
wrapped around him.
"Who are you??"
"I'm Cotton!" and he limps off stage right.
