First Grade Learns Animal Names - One day the teacher decides to play an animal game. She holds up a picture of a giraffe and asks if anyone knows what it is. No one raises his/her hand. - The teacher says, "See it's long neck? What animal has a long neck?" Sally holds up her hand and asks if it is a giraffe. "Very good, Sally," the teacher replies. Next she holds up a picture of a zebra. None of the students holds up his/her hand. - "See the stripes on this animal? What animal has stripes?" Billy holds up his hand and says it is a zebra. "Very good, Billy," the teacher replies. Next she holds up a picture of a deer. None of the students holds up his/her hand. - "See the big antlers on this animal. What animal has horns like this?" Still no one guesses. "Let me give you another hint: it's something your mother calls your father." Johnny shouts out, "I know what it is! It's a horny bastard." --- Link: http://www.jokelibrary.net/education/school1.html#old_fashioned_catholic_discipline
