The teacher of a third grade class always took the class role call each morning and just to make it more interesting, he had the students all answer by reciting a short poem.
The first student who sat in the front row was a teachers pet. He stood up and said, “My name is Dan and when I become a man, I would like to go to Japan if I can and I think I can”.
The teacher congratulated him on his poem and updated the class register.
The next student was a little girl who sat in the middle of the room. She stood up and answered the roll call by stating, “My name is Suzy and when I become a lady I would like to have a baby. If I can and I think I can”.
The teacher congratulated her also and updated the class register.
The next student on the list was Little Johnny, a smart guy sitting in the back of the room.
He stood up and said, “My name is Johnny and I don’t give a darn about Japan but I would like to help Suzy in her plan if I can. And I think I can!”
The teacher was speechless…
