Kids Say the Darnest Things

When they decide to send special teachers to the hills of Tennessee to educate the younger hillbillies, Miss Jones jumped at the chance. First thing she did was study the local economy.It quickly became clear the importance of having a pig in each family.

She tell this true story of her first day in class. Now, the mind of a six year old is wonderful, when Miss Jones, was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class this is what happened.

She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home.

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

The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?"

One little boy raised his hand and said, "I think he said 'Holy Shit! A talking pig!"
