The Last Laugh

Marzo 2010

di Mark Worden

File audio:

Speaker: Chuck Rolando (Standard American accent)

This month we present a series of true conversations that took place between teachers and children in American elementary schools:

Teacher: Maria, go to the map and find North America.
Maria: Here it is.
Teacher: Correct. Now class, who discovered America?
Class: Maria.

Teacher: John, why are you doing your math multiplication on the floor?
John: You told me to do it without using tables.
Teacher: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
Donald: H I J K L M N O.
Teacher: What are you talking about?
Donald: Yesterday you said it’s H to O.

Teacher: Clyde, your composition on “My Dog” is exactly the same as your brother’s... Did you copy his?
Clyde: No, sir. It’s the same dog.

Teacher: Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?
Harold: A teacher.
