From the mouths of babes…
A teacher asked her students to use the word “fascinate” in a sentence.
Mary said, “My family went to the New York City Zoo, and we saw all the animals. It was fascinating.”
The teacher said, “That was good, Mary, but I wanted you to use the word ‘fascinate.’”
Sally raised her hand and said, “My family went to the Philadelphia Zoo and saw the animals. I was fascinated.”
The teacher said, “Good Sally, but I wanted you to use the word ‘fascinate.’”
Little Johnny raised his hand.
The teacher hesitated because Johnny was notorious for his bad language. She finally decided there was no way he could damage the word “fascinate,” so she called on him.
Johnny said loudly, “My sister has a sweater with 10 buttons.”
The teacher said, “That was good, Johnny. However, you did not use the word ‘fascinate’ in your sentence.”
Little Johnny continued, “But her boobs are so big, she can only fasten eight!”
