    Hey give Thor a break already. Owning up to his monkeyshines never got him off the hook with HIS Dad.

    The cherry tree was blocking the view?

    Because the incident didn’t actually happen so his father couldn’t punish him for something he didn’t do?

    OK, that’s funny! Of course, when Thor got in trouble, he had to hand over the keys to the chariot–and feed the goats.

    “Father, I cannot tell a lie,” George said, running the whetstone lovingly across the axe blade…

    Actually George’s father got seriously ticked at what he said:

    “What do you mean you can’t lie? Do you wanna be President someday or DON’T you?”

    It’s appropriate that story be taught in a class full of mythological beings; that story is a myth.

    Yes, in every sense: the historical truth of the story is less important than the virtue it demonstrates: that honesty matters. Which is ironic, since a false story is used to promote truth.

    Actually, old George W. was appreciated for his resemblance to Cincinatticus: not so much for his honesty as for his willingness to lay down power and let someone else take over. He could, had he wished, easily become King George I of America–all it would have taken is a little less resistance to the idea.

    And of course, Cincinatticus was known for his BANGLES.

    Johnny’s dad asked him, “Son, did you push the outhouse into the creek?” Johnny remembered the story about the cherry tree and answered, “Pa, I cannot tell a lie. It were me what pushed the outhouse into the creek.” Johnny’s dad took off his belt and tanned him good. Still crying, Johnny said, “Pa, George Washington told the truth and his pa didn’t whip him.” Johnny’s dad answered, “George Washington’s pa wasn’t in the cherry tree at the time.”

    Losing body joints would defeat the purpose. Just force him to listen to THE BANGLES over and over again.
