The Man Who Believed That Water Flows Uphill

 

(Quick notice: This post was inspired by the book: Noodles, Nitwits, And Numskulls. It’s  hilarious).

There Once Was a man in Gotham who believed that water flows uphill.

Now everyone else they believed that water flows downhill. (Right answer).

“Water flows uphill! I read it somewhere.” Said the man.

“Water flows downhill! It’s common logic.” Said the others.

So the man went away grumbling something  like: “I’ll show them hmph.”

Now the man was looking for proof so he went on a hike. (He liked hikes). Soon he came across a waterfall. There was a big tree that shaded the waterfall.

And suddenly there was a breeze and the breeze shook the tree’s branches…

Which made a bit of light that shined from the bottom and moved to the top. (He saw this).

So he gathered everybody to the waterfall… And the breeze shook the tree…

And the light appeared and moved from the bottom to the top.

“See?! Water flows uphill! Even the light agrees with me!”

“He’s right!” Said the others.

And from that moment forward, everyone in Gotham believed that water flows uphill.

The End…

And P.S: They taught this in the schools and that is just one part of how they became stupid.

 

 

 

But they were already really stupid.

  1. That tree branches thing is clever. And it’s a problem in lots of places. So now, when I hear people saying they’ve seen the light, I’ll think, “What if they have seen only the light?” Then I can tell them to look again.
