Little Johny's Trouser Pocket

Miss Smith was testing her 2nd grade class's imagination. She put
her hand in a box, removed something without the class seeing what
it was, put her hand behind her back and asked, "Class I am holding
something in my hand, it's round, red and is edible, what is it?

Several hands went up. Miss Smith said, "Yes Robert"

Robert, "Is it an apple?"

Miss Smith replied, "No Robert. Who else can try?" Peter called
out, "It's an orange."

The young teacher said, "No." James shouted, "It's a tomato!"

"Very good James, that's correct," the teacher answered.

Little Johnny's hand shot up as he said "Miss Smith, I also want to
test the class's imagination."

Miss Smith was reluctant to call on Little Johnny due to his
propensity to use foul language, but said, "Okay, go ahead"

Johnny putting his hand in his trousers pocket says, "I am holding
something in my hand, its three inches long and has a head, what is

The class was quiet and no one had their hand up. The teacher
thought quickly and said in a disgusted voice, "Johnny sit down and
keep quiet. I don't want to hear any of your silly jokes."

Johnny, smiling, removes his hand from his pocket and says, "It's a
match stick, Miss Smith, but you have a lot of imagination."
