Teacher: If two people told you they walked five miles in a straight line into a desert how many miles would they have walked together?
Little Johnny: They would have walked 10 miles together.
Teacher: That isn’t correct Johnny, they walked 5 miles together, so the answer is 5 miles and not a combined total of 10 miles.
Little Johnny, nope, it’s 10 miles and I’ll betcha a buck.
Teacher: You’re on! Now explain to the class how you arrived at 10 total miles. BTW, I’ll let you off the hook for the dollar.
Little Johnny: You said two people told me they told me they’d walked in a straight line five miles into the desert. How could they have told me this unless they walked backed? That’s ten miles in my book and I’m not letting you off the hook, change will be fine.
Teacher: "Little Johnny can you tell the class what the word Pejorative means?"
Little Johnny: "Pejorative, an adjective, having a disparaging, derogatory, or belittling effect or force."
Teacher: "I'm impressed, you must have been studying."
Little Johnny: " Not really, I was channel surfing and happened to be on C-Span when the remotes battery died."
Little Johnny raised his hand in class. The teacher asked, “Do you have a question Little Johnny?”
Little Johnny replied, “What time IT IS?”
The teacher then replied slowly and clearly, “What time IS IT...”
With a puzzled look on his face Little Johnny said, “If I knew that I wouldn’t have asked you.”
