Little Johnny Strikes Again??

Postby blackyb » Thu Feb 05, 2015 7:57 pm

Ed Milliband was visiting a London primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.


The teacher asked Mr Milliband if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'.


So our illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a 'Tragedy'


A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playin' in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.'


'Incorrect,' said Milliband. 'That would be an accident.'


A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everybody inside, that would be a tragedy.'


'I'm afraid not', explained Milliband, 'that's what we would refer to as a great loss'.


The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Milliband searched the room.


'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'


Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raised his hand and said:


'If a plane carrying you and Mr Balls and Mrs Harmen and all the other LAB members was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile & blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'


'Fantastic' exclaimed Milliband, 'and can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?'


'Well', said Johnny, 'it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be a accident either!'
