A 6th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parks, asked her class,
"Which human body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?"
No one answered until little Mary stood up, angry, and said,
"You should not be asking 6th graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents,
and they will go and tell the principal, and you'll get fired!".
She then sat back down. Mrs. Parks ignored her, and asked the question
again, "Which body part increases to 10 times its size when
Little Mary's mouth fell open, and she said to those around her,
"Boy, is she gonna get in big trouble!"
The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class, "Anybody?"
Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, "The body
part that increases to 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye."
Mrs. Parks said, "Very good, Billy." Then turned to Mary and continued,
"As for you, young lady, I have three things to say: First, you have a
dirty mind. Second, you didn't read your homework. And third, one day you are going to be VERY, VERY disappointed!
