The cherry tree

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country.
They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter  and stank all the time.
The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that  outhouse into the creek.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek.
So he  got a large stick and started  pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into  the creek and floated  away.

That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a  spanking, the little  boy asked why. The dad  replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today.
It was you, wasn't  it,  son?"
The boy answered yes.
Then he thought a  moment  and said,
"Dad, I read in school today that  George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth."
The dad replied  "Well, son, George  Washington's father wasn't in that cherry tree."
Thanks Shirley
