School Bet


The day is slipping away.

So just a joke today.


The elementary school teacher liked to mix in a little education with everything, so on the first day of school, she was asking all the children to tell her their name, then what one of their parents did for a living, and then spell that job title.

First little girl says, "My name is Amy. My mom's a baker. That's b-a-k-e-r."

The next student says, "My name is Rayford. My dad's an electrician. That's e-l-e-k- ... no, e-e-l- ... no, sorry ... e-l-e-x- ... uh ..."

The teacher interrupts and says, "That's okay Rayford, you just think about it for a bit and we'll come back to you."

Then the next little boy says, "My name is Billy and my father is a bookie. That's b-o-o-k-i-e and I'll give you ten-to-one that Rayford don't ever spell electrician."
