Up the creek

Little Johnny's family had to use an outhouse, which sat on the bank of a creek. One day, when the creek was swollen after a spring rain, the temptation was just too strong: and Johnny got a large stick and managed to topple the outhouse into the creek ... where it just floated away.

That night, Johnny's dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, Johnny asked why: and his dad replied that someone had pushed the outhouse into the creek today. Johnny admitted it, and quickly added: "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree, but didn't get in trouble because he told the truth."

Replied his dad: "Well, Johnny, George Washington's father was not in the cherry tree."
