After the lesson had ended, the teacher said to his class: ” George Washington not only chopped down his father’s cherry tree, but he also admitted doing it.”

“Now” added the teacher, “do you know why his father didn’t punish him?”

One student put up his hand and said: “Because George still had the axe in his hand.”
