Retarded Grandparents

Recieved in an email from Swaer!

I like this—- Soooo true

(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 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.
