    Retarded Grandparents

    RETARDED GRANDPARENTS--- (this was actually reported by a teacher)

    After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils to write an essay on 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 Batemans Bay where everyone lives in nice little houses, and so they don't
    have to mow the grass anymore!

    They ride around on their bicycles and scooters and wear name tags because they 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.

    PRICELESS! Remember to send this to all your "retarded grandparent" friends and give them a laugh too!!

    I just sent this to so many friends. Is this what we're all striving for?

    I work at a medical clinic and saw this once on a history sheet completed by an elderly man.

    Under occupation, he had written "retard". When I saw that, my first thought was "Awww, poor guy!" But then I stopped to think about where I live......Texas......and had to laugh. What he meant was not "RE-tard", but "re-TARD" (that's retired, for all you non-Texans).
