A boy and his mom were walking down the street and the boy pulled on his mom’s arm and said, “Mom look! There’s a bow-legged man over there!”
His mother shushed him quickly telling him it’s not nice to call people bow-legged.
A week later they were walking together and he pulls on his mom’s arm and says, “Look mom! There’s that bow-legged man again!”
This time the mother takes him straight home saying, “I’ve told you before it’s not nice to call people bow-legged.”
Once they arrived at home the mother handed the boy a book of Shakespeare saying, “Go to your room and read this book! Hopefully it will teach you some manners!”
So the boy read the book, and a week later they were walking down the street, and the boy pulls on his mom’s arm and says, “Hark! What manner of men are these? Who wear their legs in parentheses?”
