One of my students, whose intelligence does not match his achievement, told me this joke in class yesterday. The ensuing conversation REALLY took place
Two men are talking. One says, " I don't know what I'm going to do about my dog."
"What do you mean?" said the second man.
"He chases anyone on a bicycle."
"What are you going to do? Chain him up? Give him away?"
"No, I think I'll just take away his bike."
Some giggled, some groaned,
"Wait....dogs don't ride bikes...."
"I don't get it"
"That's not fair- he can't just take peoples bikes"
"But dogs can't...."
By now, I've just had to put my head down. I'm telling you, these 4 girls talked about this for 5 minutes! People had to explain. the. joke. slowly.
I feel really bad for laughing until I cried. I'm sure I embarrassed them.
Well, not really, but I will if one of the parents calls and complains...
