The School Dance
OK, this one is silly and juvenile. But every time I see it I laugh, so....
It was the last dance of the school year, and as usual two kids did nothing but watch from the sidelines: Jimmy, who only had one eye, and whose family could only afford a cheap wooden prosthetic, and Jane, who had a hare lip. No one would ever ask them to dance.
The last song was announced, and Jimmy knew it was now or never. He wrestled up his courage and walked over to Jane.
"Um," he stammered, "Would you like to dance?"
"Would I?" she said with glee. "Would I?!"
His hopeful face turned to disgust.
"Hare lip!" he yelled, and turned and stomped away.
