Today's #jokeoftheday is brought to you be a student's witty answer to a teacher's basic math problem to solve.

Having different students only means getting different answers, some being excellent and others being below average. 

One teacher had an encounter with her student whose answer to a basic math problem made her burst with laughter. 


One day in class, a preschool teacher asked the class a simple math question: "If I gave you two cats and another two cats and then another two, how many would you have?"

Little Johnny quickly answered with confidence and enthusiasm, "seven!" The teacher then said that he was wrong and asked him to listen carefully as she repeated the problem.

She said:

"If I gave you two cats, and another two cats, and another two, how many would you have?"


Little Johnny again replied, "seven." By this time, the teacher was already getting frustrated. She slowly rubbed her temples, took a deep breath, and said:

"Come on, Johnny, you're better than this. Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples, and another two. How many would you have?"


The student then replied, "six," which somewhat made the teacher think he was on the right track. She asked again:

"Good. Now, if I gave you two cats, and another two cats, and then another two, how many would you have?"


Johnny replied, "seven!" Finally, the teacher lost control and said: "Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!?!" Johnny replied:

"Because I've already got a freaking cat!"


In another preschool class, the students each brought gifts for their teacher. The florist's son gave the teacher flowers.

The sweet girl whose family owns a candy store gave the teacher a box of candy. Then the little boy whose dad owns a liquor store came up with a big, heavy box.


The teacher got it from him and noticed there was a little leak, so she got a drop of the liquid with her finger and put it to her mouth. She asked:

"Is it wine?"

The boy shook his head in excitement, and so she had another taste of the drop and asked, "champagne?" The little boy once again shook his head and said:

"It's a puppy!"
