How to tell if a woman is married by the way she handles her ice cream
The 16-year-old Jimmy, a typical teenager, was sitting in class one day and hardly paid attention to his teacher, Mrs. Jones.
Even when Jimmy paid attention, he did participate in class because maths wasn't his forte. He was more interested in sports, anyway.
This Monday in class was no different, and Jimmy had to think fast. For similar jokes, follow us on Twitter @amomama_usa, and scroll down for Jimmy's answer.
Thankfully, he was witty and had a quick mind. It usually saved him from tricky situations.
Mrs. Jones told the class that five birds were sitting on the fence. She asked her students how many would be left if a hunter shot one of them.
When nobody in the class raised their hands, Mrs. Jones called on Jimmy for an answer. Quick as a flash, he answered that there would be none remaining.
Mrs. Jones said he was wrong, there would four left, but Jimmy disagreed. He explained that all the birds would fly away at the sound of the shotgun.
His teacher still insisted that he was wrong but said she likes the way he thinks. This only inspired Jimmy to ask a question of his own.
He wanted to know: if three women were sitting on a bench eating ice cream, how would one be able to tell which one was married?
The woman who only licked the ice cream, the one who bit into the cone, or the one who was sucking on it.
Mrs. Jones was embarrassed but decided not to show it. She answered, "The one sucking the cone, I guess?"
Jimmy, trying very hard to contain his laughter, simply said: "No ma'am, the one with the wedding ring on her finger. But I like the way you think!"
