Passing the Buck

“Ooooooooh, shiny!” Mindy picked up the loonie and was instantly surrounded by every grubby-fingered toddler on the playground. “Back, you brats!” she shouted, holding it high. “It’s MINE!”

“I’ll take that,” said the principal.

“I’ll take that,” said the government.

Effective Government

Dear Mister Mayor,

I wish that you would make it a holiday on every day. It would be a Great Idea.

Sincerely,

Timmy

Sincerely,

The Mayor
