Little Johnny Goes Down To The Pond. –

One day, Marie sent her little boy Johnny down to the pond to get some water for cooking dinner.

As he was dipping the bucket in the water,

he saw two big eyes looking back at him from the water.

He dropped the bucket and hightailed it back to the kitchen.

“Now, where’s my bucket and my water?” Marie asked him.

“I can’t get any water from that pond, Momma” cried Johnny.

“There’s a BIG ol’ alligator down dere!”

“Now don’t you mind that ol’ alligator, johnny. He’s been there for a few years now, and he ain’t never hurt nobody. Cher, he’s probably as scared of you as you are of him!”

“Well, Momma,” replied Johnny,

” if he’s as scared of me as I am of him, then dat water ain’t fit to drink!”
