A little boy came down to breakfast. His mother served him a bowl of dry cereal.
“Why do I just have a bowl of cereal?” asked the boy.
“Well,” his mother said, “Yesterday I saw you kick a chicken so you don’t get any eggs, I saw you kick a pig so you don’t get any bacon, and I saw you kick a cow so you don’t get any milk either.”
Just then his father walked into the kitchen, and he kicked the cat as he passed.
The little boy looked up at his mother and said, “You gonna tell him, or should I?”
