Kids often take things a bit too literally and at face value. That can lead to hilarious situations – this is one such story.
Little Billy came home from school to see the family’s pet rooster dead in the front yard.
Rigor mortis had set in and it was flat on its back with its legs in the air.
When his Dad came home Billy asked, “Dad, our rooster is dead and his legs are sticking up in the air. Why are his legs sticking up in the air?”
His father, thinking quickly, said, “Son, that’s so God can reach down from the clouds and lift the rooster straight up to heaven.”
“Gee Dad, that’s great!” said little Billy, content with the answer.
A few days later when Dad came home from work, Billy rushed out to meet him, yelling, “Dad! Dad, we almost lost Mom today!”
“What do you mean?” asked Dad.
“Well Dad, I got home from school early today and went up to your bedroom, and there was Mom flat on her back with her legs in the air screaming, ‘Jesus, I’m coming, I’m coming!’ If it wouldn’t have been for Uncle George holding her down we’d have lost her for sure!”
