“Doesn’t Sound Like Bailing Out to Me”

“Doesn’t Sound Like Bailing Out to Me”





    The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment:  Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. 

    The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories.  There were all the regular types of stuff:  spilled milk and pennies saved and so on.  Finally it was little Janie’s turn.  "Janie," the teacher asked, "Do you have a story to share?" 

    "Yes ma'am,” she answered.  “My daddy told me a story about my Mommy.  She was a Marine pilot in Desert Storm, and her plane got hit.  She had to bail out over enemy territory, and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife.  She drank the whiskey on the way down.  Her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops.  She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, ‘till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands.” 

    “Good Heavens,” said the horrified teacher.  “What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?" 

    Janie replied, "He said we should stay away from Mommy when she's been drinking.”
