Little Johnny, on a day when he was being
particularly reckless, was playing in the
backyard one morning.
Soon, some honeybees started swirling around,
annoying little Johnny. He began stomping on them
in his temper. His father caught him trampling the honeybees, and after a brief moment of thought said, "That's it! No honey for you for one month!"
Later that afternoon, Johnny pondered upon some butterflies, and soon started catching them and crushing them under his feet. His father again caught him, and after a brief moment of thought, said, "No butter for you for one month!"
Early that evening, Johnny's mother was cooking dinner, and got jumpy when cockroaches started scurrying around the kitchen floor. She began stomping on them one by one until all the cockroaches were dead. Johnny's mother looked up to find Johnny and his father standing there watching her.
Asked Johnny, "Are you going to tell her, daddy, or do you want me to?"
