If there is one thing I have learned about children in my life, it is the fact that they are a lot smarter than people give them credit.
We might, at times, give them the benefit of the doubt when they are trying to resolve a problem but we aren’t often going to trust their input when the situation is important. That being said, if you were to ask any teacher, they would tell you that some kids are too smart for their own good. That is what we see in the following joke, when a brilliant little girl put a snide teacher in her place.
The teacher asked a little boy:
TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass outside?
TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see if you can see the sky.
TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a minute later) Yes, I saw the sky.
TEACHER: Did you see God?
TEACHER: That’s my point. We can’t see God because he isn’t there. He doesn’t exist.
A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions. The teacher agreed, and the little girl asked the boy:
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the grass outside?
TOMMY: Yesssssssss (getting tired of the questions by this time).
LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky?
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher?
LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?
LITTLE GIRL: Then, according to what we were taught in the school today…she must not have one!!
