    The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment:
    Get their Parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.
    The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their
    stories. There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and
    pennies saved.
    But the teacher realized, much to her dismay, that only Ernie was left.
    Ernie, do you have a story to share?'
    'Yes ma'am. My daddy told a story about my Uncle Buck. He was a pilot
    in Desert Storm, and his plane got hit. He had to bail out over enemy
    territory, and all he had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a
    survival knife.

    He drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break, and
    then his parachute landed him right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops.
    He shot 15 of them with the pistol, until he ran out of bullets, killed
    four more with the knife, till the blade broke, and then he killed the
    last Iraqi wIth his bare hands.'

    'Good Heavens,' said the horrified teacher. 'What did your daddy tell you
    was the moral to this horrible story?
    'Stay away from Uncle Buck when he's been drinking.
