We used to think we knew everything when we were young and naïve. However, something or someone in our lives showed us that we didn’t know nearly as much as we thought we did. You’d think that as adults, we’d grow out of this period, but we nevertheless find ourselves having to relearn the same lessons from time to time. It frequently occurs when we take things at face value rather than investigating further. These misunderstandings can lead to some hilarious moments, but they can also land us serious difficulty. She rapidly learns a vital lesson when a little girl jumps to the wrong conclusion with the false teacher in the following joke.
“Who can tell me which organ of the human body swells to 10 times its normal size when stimulated?” Mrs. Samson, a sixth-grade science teacher, asks her class.
Nobody raises their hand, so she summons the first student who turns to face her. “Mary, can you tell me which organ in the human body when stimulated swells to ten times its normal size?”
Mary rises to her feet, flushed profusely. She scoffs, “How can you pose such a question?” “I’m going to report you to my parents, who will report you to the principal, who will dismiss you!”
Mrs. Sampson is taken aback by Mary’s attitude, but she is unfazed. She poses the question to the students once more, and Sam raises his hand this time.
Mrs. Sampson asks, “Yes, Sam?” “Ma’am, the proper answer is the human eye’s iris.”
“Wonderful, Sam. “Thank you very much.”
“Mary, I have three things to tell you: first, it’s evident that you haven’t done your homework,” Mrs. Sampson adds. Second, your mind is filthy. Third, I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed one day.”
