Once there were two skunks named In and Out.

When In was out, Out was in.

One day Out was in and In was out.

Mother Skunk, who was in with Out, asked Out to go out and bring In in.

So Out went out, and brought In right in.

“How did you find In so quickly?” asked Mother Skunk.

“It was easy,” said Out. “Instinct.”


(In stinked.)


You may groan now.
