Dad's Brownies

A father of some teenage children 
had the family rule that they could not 
attend PG-13 or R rated movies. His three 
teens wanted to see a particular popular 
movie that was playing at local theaters. 

It was rated PG-13. The teens interviewed 
friends and even some members of their 
family's church to find out what was 
offensive in the movie. The teens made 
a list of pros and cons about the movie 
to use to convince their dad that they 
should be allowed to see it. 

The con's were that it contained ONLY 
3 swear words, the ONLY violence was 
a building exploding (and you see that on TV 
all the time they said), and you actually did 
not "see" the couple in the movie having sex 
it was just implied sex, off camera. 

The pros were that it was a popular movie 
- a block buster. Everyone was seeing it. 
If the teens saw the movie then they would 
not feel left out when their friends 
discussed it. The movie contained a good 
story and plot. It had some great 
adventure and suspense in it. There were 
some fantastic special effects in this movie. 

The movie's stars were some of the most 
talented actors in Hollywood. It probably 
would be nominated for several awards. 
Many of the members of their Christian 
church had even seen the movie and 
said it wasn't "very bad". 

Therefore, since there were more pros 
than cons the teens said they were 
asking their father to reconsider his 
position on just this ONE movie and 
let them have permission to go see it. 

The father looked at the list and thought 
for a few minutes. He said he could tell 
his children had spent some time and 
thought on this request. He asked if he 
could have a day to think about it before 
making his decision. 

The teens were thrilled thinking; 
"Now we've got him! Our argument is 
too good! Dad can't turn us down!" 
So, they happily agreed to let him have 
a day to think about their request. 

The next evening the father called in his 
three teenagers, who were smiling 
smugly, into the living room. There on 
the coffee table he had a plate of 
brownies. The teens were puzzled. The 
father told his children he had thought 
about their request and had decided that 
if they would eat a brownie then he would 
let them go to the movie. But just like 
the movie, the brownies had pros and cons. 

The pros were that they were made 
with the finest chocolate and other 
good ingredients. They had the added 
special effect of yummy walnuts in them. 
The brownies were moist and fresh with 
wonderful chocolate frosting on top. 

He had made these fantastic brownies 
using an award-winning recipe. And best 
of all, the brownies had been made 
lovingly by the hand of their own father. 
The brownies only had one con. The father 
had included a little bit of a special ingredient.

The brownies also contained just a little bit
of dog poop. But he had mixed the dough well 
- they probably would not even be able 
to taste the dog poop and he had baked 
it at 350 degrees so any bacteria or 
germs from the dog poop had 
probably been destroyed. 

Therefore, if any of his children could 
stand to eat the brownies which included 
just a "little bit of crap" and not 
be effected by it, then he knew they 
would also be able to see the movie 
with "just a little bit of smut" 
and not be effected. 

Of course, none of the teens would eat 
the brownies and the smug smiles had left 
their faces. Only Dad was smiling smugly 
as they left the room. 

Now when his teenagers ask permission 
to do something he is opposed to the 
father just asks, "Would you like me to whip 
up a batch of my special brownies?"
