A teacher instructed her pupils to go home and ask their parents to narrate a story with a moral to them. The pupils were to tell the stories in their next class.


A class teacher gave her pupils an assignment asking them to go home and ask their parents to tell them a story that had a moral lesson. The pupils would, in turn, tell the stories in class.

The next day, the teacher called Joe to tell his story. Joe moved to the front of the class and narrated the story about his parents' farm life. He noted that one day his dad packed all the eggs on the farm into a basket.

The plan was to sell them at the market. He got the basket of eggs into the front of the truck and drove off. However, on his way to the farm, the truck hit a big bump, and the basket toppled.

This caused all the eggs to break, and Joe's father had no eggs to take to the market. When the teacher asked for the moral, Joe replied: "The moral of the story is not to put all your eggs in one basket."

The teacher was impressed by this and commended Joe. She then called on the next student, and Mary came forward ready to share her interesting story.

Mary stated that her father was a farmer, and her family owned a farm as well. She shared that one day, all the chickens laid eggs, and they numbered up to twenty.

However, when the eggs hatched, only ten became chicks. When the teacher asked for the moral, Mary explained: "The moral of the story is don't count your chickens before they hatch."

The teacher was once again elated as she praised Mary's storytelling style and moral. She then moved on and beckoned on Sally to go forward and share her own story.

Sally started by mentioning that his dad told him about the story of her Aunt Karen. She narrated that Aunt Karen was a flight engineer during the war, and one day her plane got hit.

She was hovering above the enemy's camp, and there was no other person with her. She only had a machine gun, a machete, and a bottle of whiskey.

Before landing the fighter jet on the enemy camp, Aunt Karen drank all the whiskey. Then she landed the aircraft and fired at the enemies with her machine gun. She was able to kill seventy of them.

When she ran out of bullets, Aunt Karen wielded the machete and killed more of the enemies until the machete broke. She then proceeded to kill the last ten with her bare hands.

By now, the class teacher was horrified by Sally's story and asked to skip the other gory parts and share the moral of the story. Sally paused for a moment and replied, "The moral of the story is stay away from Aunt Karen when she's been drinking."
