Tale from Bayi: The Outhouse

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy was determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek.

One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. He got a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.

That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why? The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it son?"

The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, " Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth."

The dad replied, "Well son, George Washington's father wasn't in the cherry tree when he chopped it down!"

Look at Chua Soi Lei....... Told the truth and see what happen????

As for the Lingham, looks like me, sound like me but not me and nothing happens to him.

Maybe Bolehland is very different.

Moo is right. The boy should have done a Lingam. :)

Moo,

You have a good point. Maybe, our society is much suting on Lingham's type of behavior.

Sinkeh,

I may agree.... so let's ling-ham!

Honesty???? Now, not worth a dime. Lin-ham style is the best answer... hahaha

June W.,

Honesty is still the best policy. Let the others fail in their integrity and debase their virtues.

The father was shitting inside when the son toppled the outhouse into the river with the old man inside. Gawd...that old man must have smelled shitty for a long time after that!
