A novice teacher enters the classroom and tries to motivate his students by telling a joke, "Guess how many coins I have in my pocket."

One student asks, "If I guess right, will you give me one of them?"

The teacher replies, "If you guess right, I'll give you both of them!"




Look how the students can try to kid their teacher.



Student: I'm in a big trouble!

Teacher: Why is that?

Student: I saw a mouse in my house!

Teacher: Oh, well, all you need to do is use a trap.

Student: I don't have one.

Teacher: Well then, buy one.

Student: Can't afford one.

Teacher: I can give you mine if you want.

Student: That sounds good.

Teacher: All you need to do is just use some cheese in order to make the mouse come to the trap.

Student: I don't have any cheese.

Teacher: Okay then, take a piece of bread and put a bit of oil in it and put it in the trap.

Student: I don't have oil.

Teacher: Well, then put only a small piece of bread.

Student: I don't have bread.

Teacher: Then what is the mouse doing at your house?
