The following are REAL summer vacation essays from children around the country. If your child has a funny report, send it to Ooze, and if we print it we'll send you a check for Fifty (50) Cents! Aren't these kids cute? This summer vacation I went to the state of Arkinsaw. People wore funny hats and spat brown stuff at my dad. He got mad and yelled but the man pulled out a double barreled 10 gauge shotgun and shooteted out our windows. Daddy says he wants to go to Pennsylvania next year.

So I went up to the hairy man's room and he "made me his woman". It wasn't much fun, but then he burned to death with my mom. That was my summer.
