Funny News issue number 11 conversation,reading and writing prompts None of the stories are fiction. Some deal with historical individuals.These short stories can be used with conversation for some very interesting communication. I also use the stories as writing prompts. These prompts have produced some very interesting and creative 4 and 5 paragraph essays. Thank you for all your support. Kevin

You might have a problem with "little buggers". A funny expression perhaps, but some may find a "bugger" to be offensive.

I am sorry for the word you disaproved of         posted by teacherflorida
I was referring to a fly which is a bug hence the word bugger.
I in no way intended to offend anyone.
Now that I think about it the only way someone would be offended is if they think they are an insect.
now I am bugged (sorry bothered) LOL
Have a good day
In a way itīs also a News Paper and in America we have freedom of the press. Oh well sorry again.

Please accept my most sincere apology.
