I received this as an email,,, It was so funny ...
I just had to share it with you.  

(this was actually reported by a teacher)

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their holiday away from school.
One child wrote the following:
We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa.
They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Arizona .
Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass.
They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because they I don't
know who they are anymore.
They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now,
they do exercises there, but they don't do them very well.
There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on.
At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it.
He watches all day so nobody can escape.
Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts.
Nobody there cooks, they just eat out.
And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds.
Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house.
The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck.
My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too..
When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house.
Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.  


I hope this puts a smile on your face today :) It sure did mine ;) LOL



It not only put a "smile" on my face--it gave me a chuckle too--thanks for sharing!!!
have a great day
Hugs, Di

HannahJ said... ya never stopped to think about how this makes people feel who actually have children who are mentally retarded. Really hysterically laughing over that one. Yes, laughing over being retarded. How un-priceless can you get? Shameful if you ask me.

Hannah J.. needs to go back and re-read this joke it is not making fun of any child of special needs.
I do have a little more sensitvity than that. I have a special needs grandchild of my own!!!
I could have chosen not published her comment .. but I pride myself in doing the right thing!! Everyone deserves to be heard even if they read the material wrong.
