WHO BLEW UP THE OUTHOUSE? We had an old outhouse in the country A fine old outhouse to be sure But one day with their homework done The boys got into some mischief And thought the outhouse had to go. They crept up to the building And laid out dynamite sticks. They lit the wicks and ran like hell Then waited for the boom to happen. The outhouse was obliterated, And sadly it was no more. Sometime later Pa came in the kitchen, Looking worn and weary. "Who blew up the old outhouse?" He growled, looking down at the two boys. "W-we did, Pa," they stammered, Looking quite chagrined. "Well, then, you'll rebuild it, board by board, Until it's upright once again." "But Pa," they said, "We told the truth, just like George Washington did when he cut down the old Apple tree, and naught punishment he received." Old Pa looked down and growled again, "But George's Pa weren't in the tree when he went and cut it down!" © ELR 2013
