A school teacher decides that she was going to give her class a lesson about vegetables. She turned and asked her class, “What vegetable makes your eyes water?”
Little Johnny, always ready with a wisecrack, replied, “A turnip, miss.”
“No Johnny,” the teacher said, “I believe you are thinking of an onion, aren’t you? It’s an onion that makes your eyes water.”
“No miss,” Little Johnny replied, “I guess you have never been hit in the balls with a turnip?”
Here’s a really funny sketch about turnips by comedian John Pinette. Well worth a watch and listen if you have 2 1/2 minutes.
