Little Johnny

The teacher announced that to practice spelling, each member of the class would say what their fathers did for a living and then spell the occupation.

Mary went first. ”My Dad is a baker, b-a-k-e-r, and if he were here, he would give everyone a cookie.”

Next came Tommy. ”My dad is a banker, b-a-n-k-e-r, and if he were here, he’d give each of us a quarter.”

Third came Jimmy. ”My dad is an electrician.” But after struggling through a number of attempts to spell the word, the teacher asked him to sit and think about it for a moment while she called on someone else.

She then turned to Johnny. ”My dad’s a bookie, b-o-o-k-i-e,” Johnny said. ”And if he were here, he’d lay you 8 to 5 that Jimmy ain’t never gonna spell electrician.”

  1. That's a pretty funny one! If I was one of those kids, I'd want my dad to be a cop as it's easy to spell :-)
