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 he 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??
