A little boy comes down to breakfast. Since they live on a farm, his
mother asks if he had done his chores.
"Not yet," said the little boy. His mother tells him he can't have any
breakfast until he does his chores.
Well, he's a little pissed off, so he goes to feed the chickens, and he
kicks a chicken.
He goes to feed the cows, and he kicks a cow.
He goes to feed the pigs, and he kicks a pig.
He goes back in for breakfast and his mother gives him a bowl of dry cereal.
"How come I don't get any eggs and bacon? Why don't I have any milk
in my cereal?" he asks.
"Well," his mother says, "I saw you kick a chicken, so you don't get
any eggs for a week. I saw you kick the pig, so you don't get any bacon,
for a week either. I also saw you kick the cow, so, for a week you aren't
getting any milk."
Just then, his father comes down for breakfast and kicks the cat as he's
walking into the kitchen.
The little boy looks up at his mother with a smile, and says, "Are you
going to tell him, or should I?"
