Teacher Gets The Most Ridiculous Answer And Would Have Be Smart Not To Ask The Question Again

In the following joke, we hear about a teacher who asked a student a question and when they didn’t get the answer they wanted, they began to ridicule the child. In the end, we are left laughing and the teacher learned a lesson that they won’t forget.

Teacher: “If I gave you 2 cats and another 2 cats and another 2, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Seven.”

Teacher: “No, listen carefully… If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Seven.”

Teacher: “Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples and another two, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Six.”

Teacher: “Good. Now if I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Seven!”

Teacher: “Johnny, where in the world do you get seven from?!”

Johnny: “Because I’ve already got a cat!”
