Dear  Dad

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished  to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he  saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It  was addressed, "Dad". With the worst premonitions, he opened the envelope  and read theletter with trembling hands:

Dear Dad:   

It is  with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you.  I had to  elope
with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with mom and  you.
I've been finding real passion with Joan and she is so nice, even with  all
her piercings, tattoos, and her tight motorcycle clothes. But  it's not only
the passion dad; she's pregnant and Joan said that we will be  very happy.
Even though you wouldn't care for her as she is so much older  than me, she
already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of  firewood big enough
for the whole winter.  She wants to have many more  children with me, and that's
now one of my dreams too.  Joan taught me  that marijuana doesn't really
hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us  and trading it with her friends for
all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In  the meantime,we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Joan can  get better.  She sure deserves it!! Don't worry Dad, I'm 16  years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure  we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your son,

PS: Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's  house.

I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in  life
than my report card that's in my center desk drawer.  I love  you!

Call when it is safe for me to come  home
