Anybody? Anybody?

An important job had to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done. - Anonymous (or Anybody)

I'll have to use this with my students next year when we tackle indefinite pronouns.

I stumbled on this years ago and have kept it in my files. Fun.
