One day, a teacher was attempting to teach the names of animals to a class of 5-year-olds. She held up a picture of a deer, and asked one boy, "Billy, what is this animal?" Little Billy looked at the picture with a disheartened look on his face and responded, "I'm sorry Mrs. Smith, I don't know." The teacher was not one to give up easily, so she then asked Billy, "well, Billy, what does your Mommy call your Daddy?" Little Billy's face suddenly brightened up, but then a confused look came over his face, as he asked, "Mrs. Smith, is that really a pig?"

Oh! ........Dear!!!!!!!!!
Not a joke, but an hilarious moment I had a few years ago : I was TRYING to teach 'so do I' & ' neither do I' to my 14-year-old students.......I told them a few things about myself, & expected them to react with one of the tags. It worked SO well that most of them really wanted to react, & one big boy suddenly shouted : ' SO DO ME' - which, pronounced by a French speaking person, sounds : so-do-my!!!!!!!!!!!!
....Er...........;-)) Another one - true!!!!!!!! : One of our Special Needs was called Kitti - which is VERY strange to a French ear ;-))) During a parents'meeting, one of the staff asked about the boy's name, & Mum replied : ' You know, it's after this American actor ........Kittiswood.'

I totally agree with you dear Liette.Nothing's gonna compare the days we spend in class with students.Every day is a new day with a new experience.Many funny things happen.Sometimes we laugh, and sometimes we get disappointed and frustrated.This is what makes our job a wonderful one!!
