One day a little boy went down stairs and told his mother he wanted breakfast. She told him to do his chores and she would have it ready. When he returned all that was on the table was bread and jelly. He ask his mom why she didn't fix him bacon and eggs. She explained that she had watched him do the chores, and said since you kicked the chicken you didn't get eggs and you kicked the pig so you don't get bacon. At about this time the father walked down stairs and kicked the cat out of his chair. The little boy looked up at his mom and said "You want to tell him or do you want me to."
