    Default What Child wrote about his retired Grandparents for a school assignment

    RETARDED" GRANDPARENTS


    Written by a third grader , on what his grandparents do.

    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 Florida . Now they live in a tin box that has wheels, but it's strapped to the ground. 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 just 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.

    I had to re-read it to see that retarded meant retired. The first time I thought it was the kids term for dementia and/or Alzheimers.

    You'd have to be retarded to believe a 3rd grader writes that well, but it's funny anyhow.

    I've seen that story many times, so decided to Google search for the oldest version.

    The oldest I found was 1999, near the bottom of this page. It might be much older, as I think I've seen a printed version before 1999.
