Little Jean loved school. His mother never had to even wake him in the mornings. At 6 a.m., he was up, dressed with his back-pack packed, ready to wait for the bus.
Jean always made all A’s and B’s and was last year’s spelling champ.
That’s why it came as a surprise when Jean’s parents got a call from their son’s principal.
Republic Main Street shared this funny story about a wise-cracking kid.
Here’s what happened.
Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”
She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed.
My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.
I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA.
He said they love animals very much.
I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal’s office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.
I don’t understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.
I told her, “Colonel Sanders”.
Guess where I am now…
The poor kid was only being honest…
But pretty sure this little guy could be the next biggest stand-up comedian!
15 years from now his teacher will see him on the big screen…and just maybe, she’ll allow herself a chuckle.
