- As told to me today by Atticus, Hatfield and the Mister, all individually, all thinking that they were the first to share this funny. They were adorable, thinking they each got the scoop, and I laughed just as hard the first time as I did the third.
So here goes:
A boy was walking home from school on a sidewalk. All of a sudden, he heard lots of loud voices chanting "Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!"
He realized that the noise was coming from behind a fenced-in backyard. "Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!" It got louder and louder, but the fence was quite tall and the boy couldn't see anything.
Spying a knotty hole in the wooden fence, the boy went up to it to peek. The moment he put his face up to the hole, somebody's finger stuck through and poked him right in the eye!
Surprised and hurting, he fell back. And suddenly he heard the loud chorus of voices chanting "Fourteen! Fourteen! Fourteen!"
