A first grader was sitting in class as the teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs. She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to acquire building materials for his home.

She said,  "...And so the pig went up to the man with a wheelbarrow full of straw and said 'Pardon me sir, but might I have some of that straw to build my house with?' "

Then the teacher asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?"

My friend's son raised his hand and says,  "I know! I know!, he said...

. . . . . 'Holy smokes! A talking pig!!' "

Needless to say, the teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes.
