The composition teacher asked the class to write about an
unusual event that happened during the past week. Little Johnny
got up and read his essay.
It began, "Daddy fell into the well last week..."
"My goodness!" the teacher exclaimed. "Is he all right?"
"He must be," said the boy. "He stopped yelling for help yesterday".
A hungry lion was roaming through the jungle looking for
something to eat. He came across two men. One was sitting
under a tree and reading a book; the other was typing away
on his typewriter.
The lion quickly pounced on the man reading the book and
devoured him. Even the king of the jungle knows that readers
digest and writers cramp.
