From the mouths of babes - cute joke

My wife is a third grade teacher. One of her friends forwarded this story to her and I thought the AS forum would get a kick out of it.

when I click on the link, it leads to a log-in.

Would you care to find another way to post your joke, or do you want me to delete or modify your post?

From the mouths of babes - cute joke

Sorry about the dead end everyone. Here is the real story:

Written by a third grader, on what his grandparents do.

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their holiday away from school.

One child wrote the following:

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to live in a big brick house, but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Arizona . Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass.

They ride around on their bicycles, and wear name tags, because they don't know who they are anymore. They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't do them very well. There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on.

At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same thing every night - early birds.

Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck.

My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and, says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too. When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.

I am sorry if I offended anyone. This is just a third grader's take on what it means to be retired and living in a trailer/rv park in Arizona.

That is awesome! Reminds me of that show that Bill Cosby had on tv some years ago, with the kids just "telling it like it is", ha ha!!
