Joe Dirt, the Tall Tale

A few weeks ago, I mentioned a Tall Tale that one of my students wrote that sounds vaguely like the screenplay for the movie Joe Dirt.  Here is the completed work, for your enjoyment:

"When Joe Dirt was 8 he had got lost at mount rushmore.  And 20 years later he was poor and he did not have any friend.  Until he saved karen puppy dog and she like him.  

Joe Dirt was starting his jurney to find his parents.  He had lost Kim and she was heartbroken. he had found an astrode but it turned out to be a pile of mud.  

Joe Dirt had saw his favorite car on sale.  an old lady said that he can have it and a storm came up and had to put rock in the hot air ballon.  and he had fell in it and flew to pensulvanya.

And he came to look like his dad and know one knows what happen to Joe Dirt.  next but I know he chaned the world a little"
