mickey mouse built a house...

My wife's aunt and uncle built a very nice house, which they lived in for some time. Eventually they sold it for a goodly amount, and moved to another town.

The new owners immediately had their family over to enjoy their new house -- as they sat downstairs in the fancy parlor, someone upstairs used the guest bath for the first time. Turns out there was a copper fitting that had never gotten soldered...

The water leaked into the wall and a large portion of the ceiling downstairs came down on the heads of the people in the parlor -- water and wet sheetrock everywhere.

My wife's uncle had it all fixed for them. I guess they were gracious about it. I know it's not funny, but... okay, its' funny. At least to me.

A lovely holiday tale... And their guests exclaimed as he drove out of sight, "Chicken Little, the sky is falling!"
