The Meanest Thing To Say
Title: The Meanest Thing To Say
Author: Bill Cosby
When a new boy in class tries to get the other students to play a game that involves saying the meanest things possible to one another, Little Bill shows him a better way to make friends.
Michael Reilly has introduced a new game to Little Bill and his friends. You get twelve chances to say something mean to another kid—and whoever comes up with the biggest insult is the winner.
Insults start flying: “Jose hops with the frogs in science lab!” “Andrew eats frogs for dinner!” “Little Bill shoots baskets like a girl!”
Little Bill tries to think of really mean things to say in retaliation. But Dad teaches him a strategy that enables Little Bill to save face while remaining the nice kid that he really is!
