Hilarious Hump Day – What Could be Worse?

Today’s mid-week jocular pick-me-up came to me courtesy of good ol’ bloggy buddy and friend, Ron Berry, of “Unwriter” fame. Enjoy…


A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see the bed nicely made up and everything neat and tidy. Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, “Dad”. With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with you and Mom.

I’ve been finding real passion with Joan and she is so nice. I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight motorcycle clothes and because she is so much older than I am but it’s not only the passion, Dad, she’s pregnant.

Joan says that we are going to be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood, enough for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Joan has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it and trading it with the other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.

In the meantime, we’ll pray that science will find a cure for cancer so Joan can get better; she sure deserves it!

Don’t worry Dad, I’m 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I’m sure we’ll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your son,
P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Tommy’s house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that’s in my desk drawer.

    Wish I’d thought of that when I was 15.

    I think ol’ Dad needs to play a prank on young Chad and balance out the universe.

    Cute! Happy Wednesday!

    Way to go, Kid. I’ll bet that dad was never so happy to see a bad report card. Sounds like something my son would have done. Happy Hump Day. 😀

    I’ll give him a gold star for creativity but I think I would have kicked his a** when he got back from Tommy’s.

    Yeah, I would’ve killed him too!
