STORY

THERE WAS A GIRL WHO WENT TO WESTERN ONTARIO COLLEGE AND HER BOY
FRIEND CAME TO PICK HER UP FOR A FORMAL DANCE. HE WAS SITTING
IN THE LIVING ROOM WHICH WAS DIVIDED BY A STAIRWAY. THE PARENTS
COULDN'T SEE THEIR DAUGHTER AS SHE BEGAN COMING DOWN THE STAIRS.
THE GIRL'S SHOE CAUGHT IN HER DRESS AND PULLED IT DOWN TO HER WAIST.
HER DATE SAW THIS AND HER PARENTS DIDN'T AND SO TO DISTRACT
ATTENTION FROM THE GIRL, HE SAID, "OH, LOOK OUT ON THE LAWN. THE
PARENTS LOOKED OUT ON THE LAWN AND THERE WERE TWO DOGS ENGAGED
IN "HANKEY-PANKEY." THE FATHER DIDN'T WANT THIS KIND OF A BOY
TAKING OUT HIS DAUGHTER, THEREFORE FORBAD HIS DAUGHTER GOING OUT
WITH HIM. BUT THE GIRL CALLED HER MOTHER UPSTAIRS AND EXPLAINED
WHAT HAD HAPPENED. EVERYTHING WAS STRAIGHTENED OUT.
