    I love this saying.

    For some reason it came to mind last night.

    One bright day in the middle of the night,
    Two dead boys got up to fight,
    Back to back they faced each other,
    Drew their swords and shot each other,

    One was blind and the other couldn't see
    So they chose a dummy for a referee.
    A blind man went to see fair play,
    A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"

    A paralyzed donkey passing by,
    Kicked the blind man in the eye,
    Knocked him through a nine inch wall,
    Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,

    A deaf policeman heard the noise,
    And came to arrest the two dead boys,
    If you don't believe this story’s true,
    Ask the blind man he saw it too!

    Haven't heard this in years. The version I remember ends like this...

    "A deaf policeman heard the noise
    And came to kill the two dead boys."

    found it this way, too

    [FONT=&quot]Ladies and Gentlemen, skinny and stout,[/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    I'll tell you a tale I know nothing about;
    The Admission is free, so pay at the door,
    Now pull up a chair and sit on the floor.

    One fine day in the middle of the night,
    Two dead boys got up to fight;
    Back to back they faced each other,
    Drew their swords and shot each other.

    A blind man came to watch fair play,
    A mute man came to shout "Horray!"
    A deaf policeman heard the noise and
    Came and killed those two dead boys.

    He lived on the corner in the middle of the block,
    In a two-story house on a vacant lot;
    A man with no legs came walking by,
    and kicked the lawman in his thigh.

    He crashed through a wall without making a sound,
    into a dry creek and suddenly drowned;
    The long black hearse came to cart him away,
    But he ran for his life and is still gone today.

    I watched from the corner of the big round table,
    The only eyewitness to facts of my fable;
    But if you doubt my lies are true,
    Just ask the blind man, he saw it too.

    You really have to ask?

    This day and age? Im sure somebody will get offended by it and sue the school or something.

    The following was inscribed on a headstone in a Revolutionary War era cemetery in Boston on John Decoster's tombstone dated late 1700s:

    "Stop here my friend and cast an eye

    As you are now so once was I

    As I am now so you must be

    Prepare for death and follow me."


    Pretty eerie on a cemetery tour at 11 at night...
