As the story goes, there was this army drill Sargent whose wife presented him with 5 sons ranging from 7 down to 3 years old. Generally speaking his wife was the one who stayed home with the kids while dad was off to work. On weekends, when the wife was out shopping, he was the one who took care of the kids. These boys were typical youngsters who were into everything and were a lot to handle.
There came this one Saturday when the dad was in 'no mood' to put up with any antics from his boys. When everybody was up and the wife was on her way, the dad lined all five of them up, military style and at attention. He took out his paddle and gave each one of them a smack on the butt.
The older son said: "Can I ask a question Sir?"...and the dad said yes. The son asked, "What was that smack for?" Whereupon the dad said, 'That's for nothing, now try something."
That's when the 3 year old piped up and said, "Dad can I ask a question?"... and his dad said yes. Then the three year old said: "Sir, how can a guy get out of this 'chicken shit' outfit?"
