Little Johnny is a junior reporter for a small-town newspaper,
Johnny is sent out on his first assignment.
When he comes back, he submits the following report to his editor.
“Mrs Smith was injured in a car accident today.”
She is recovering in hospital with lacerations.
The editor reads this, then scolds the junior reporter,
“ This is a family paper, son. We don’t use words like around here now go back and write something more appropriate!”

Finally, he hands the editor the following: “Mrs Smith was injured in a car accident today.
She is recovering in hospital with lacerations on her.
