There was a little boy on vacation with his parents

There was a little boy on vacation with his parents in the country.
They were going to spend 2 weeks in a no frills cabin with an outhouse sitting on the bank of a

creek. The little boy hated using the outhouse because it was cold at night and hot during the day, not to mention he was a little afraid of using by himself.

After a couple of days there was a hard spring rain and the creek was swollen so the little boy decided to push the outhouse into the creek. He got a large stick and used it for leverage and

finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and started floating away.

That night, at dinner, the dad said he was really disappointed with his son. The little boy asked why. The dad then said, “Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you wasn’t

it son?”

The little boy sheepishly said yes and his dad told him to think about what he’d done.

A little while later the little boy said he learned about George Washington cutting down a cherry tree and didn’t get into any trouble because he told the truth. “Well son,” replied the dad, “George Washington’s father wasn’t sitting in the cherry tree.”
