Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.

consequently gets picked on.]
“...were playing at recess. Another kid started chasing and
teasing Joseph. Son #2 grabbed the boy from behind and wanted to
ask him why he was chasing Joseph. The other boy bit son #2 on the

When I heard the message and that son #2 was defending this little
kid I asked him, “Did you turn around and pop the other kid on the

Son #2 said, “No dad. You might have done that, but not me.”

Ouch... ya learn something from your kids every day.

No suspensions for son #2, but the teacher said that they had
called in the parents of the other boy. And would talk to them yet
