Little Johnny wasn't very good at spelling.
During an oral
spelling exam, the teacher wrote the word "new" on
the
blackboard. "Now," she asked Johnny, "what word would we

have if we placed a "K" in the front?"

After a moment's
reflection, Johnny said, "Canoe?"

THE teacher announced that to
practice
spelling, each member of the class would say what their fathers did

for a living and then spell the occupation.
Mary went first. "My Dad
is a baker, b-a-k-e-r, and if he were here,
he would give everyone
a cookie."
Next came Tommy. "My dad is a banker, b-a-n-k-e-r, and
if he were
here, he'd give each of us a quarter."
Third came
Jimmy. "My dad is an electrician.'' But after struggling
through a
number of attempts to spell the word, the teacher asked him
to sit
and think about it for a moment while she called on someone else.

She then turned to Johnny.
"My dad's a bookie, b-o-o-k-i-e," Johnny
said. "And if he were
here, he'd lay you 8 to 5 that Jimmy ain't
never gonnaspell
electrician."
