A woman was out shopping and her son was with her. They boy spotted a man
who was bowlegged. The boy pulled on Mom's hand and said, " Momma, look at
the bowlegged man."
Mom was mortified and told her son that it was not polite to point to a
person and make that sort of comment. For punishment, the boy had to read
a play by Shakespeare. He couldn't go shopping again until he finished
reading the play.
Finally he finished and his mom took him out again to the mall shopping.
Once again he spied a bowlegged man, but remembered what happened the last
So he pulled on his mother's hand and said, "Lo, what manner of men are
these, who wear their balls in parentheses?"
