Daily Joke: Teacher Asks Pupils about Their Fears and One of Them Gives a Surprising Answer
A teacher was conducting her usual Science lesson, and the students sat silently, solving their daily worksheets. After some time, they began handing her the solved papers, and she decided to give them a piece of good news.
"Dear students, I'm happy with your performance in the class tests and daily readings so far. So as a reward for your hard work, we won't be studying in the next period," said the teacher.
The entire class started clapping their hands, and their faces lit up with sheer excitement and joy. They were over the moon to hear the teacher's announcement, and some of them had already become curious as to what they'd do in the next period.
"Teacher, if we won't be studying, what else would we do?" asked one student.
"Oh, we'll talk about a couple of fun things, and trust me, you'll enjoy the session," replied the teacher.
She then got up from her seat, walked over to stand close to the students' desks, and said,
"Okay, let's begin. I'll ask you all a few questions, and you have to give me your honest answers. That's how we'll take along the discussion," suggested the teacher.
Seeing the students' eager faces, she began asking the questions.
"Tell me, what do you want the most in life?" asked the teacher.
"I want an endless supply of chocolates," replied Tom.
"I want to meet my favorite cartoon characters," said Emily.
"I'd very much like to celebrate my next birthday party in Disneyland," answered Lily.
One by one, all the students shared their desires, except for Stanley, who sat silently in his seat.
"What about you, Stanley? What do you want the most?" asked the teacher.
"I want to know how long it will take to prove that there is a possibility of life on Mars," responded Stanley.
The teacher was impressed with his smart reply, and all the students began staring at him out of sheer bewilderment.
"Okay, next question. What's the one thing you enjoy doing the most?" asked the teacher.
"I love playing with my friends," replied Tom.
"I enjoy traveling with my parents," said Emily.
"I always enjoy visiting my grandparents' house," answered Lily.
"I have a great time listening to Beethoven's ninth symphony," responded Stanley.
Once again, the entire class, including the teacher, was taken aback by Stanley's answer.
"Okay, now tell me, children, what's your biggest fear?" asked the teacher.
"I'm scared of snakes," said Tom.
"I'm afraid of lions," replied Emily.
"I'm scared of the unbelievable senselessness of life, and that we will all die a terrible death in our nightmares!" answered Stanley.
"I'm scared of Stanley," said Lily in a nervous tone.
No wonder, Stanley's responses were unusual, and scary enough for the rest of the class.
