Cheeky Boy!

24 Nov
Jack and Jill (nursery rhyme)

Spud was in his English class.  Someone had never heard of the word ‘pail’.  The teacher explained it was a bucket as in,

Jack and Jill
went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.

As she paused, Spud interjected,

Instead they found whiskey,
got a bit frisky
and now they have a daughter.

That’s my boy!

    Jack and Jill went up the hill
    For some hanky panky
    Jill had forgotten to take her pill
    And now there’s little Franky.

      He gets away with murder because his teachers like him.

      Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

    What a poet, just like his mom (or his dad?).

    Nice one, I love Spud’s sense of humour – think he must be following in your footsteps Tilly!

      He is extremely funny, it’s true 😉

    Like mother like son, that was funny. If I had been the teacher, they would have heard my laughter all the way into France. That is how loud my laugh can get, I have a real belly laugh. You would have heard it I’m sure.

      I would love to; there’s nothing better than a loud laugh 🙂

    Do I detect the next Benny Hill? There is nothing like British humor – it’s the best!

    I’m beginning to believe that a sense of great humor is genetic! 🙂

    That’s awesome! But, did the teacher appreciate the wit and timing?

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
