An Elephant

Five-year old students were learning to read.
One of them pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said,"Look at this! It's a frickin' elephant!"

The teacher took a deep breath, then asked..."What did you call it?

"It's a frickin' elephant!It says so on the picture!"

And so it does...

" A f r i c a n Elephant "

Hooked on phonics! Ain't it wonderful?

LOL! This reminds my when my niece was learning to read, she couldn't grasp the fact that balogna was spelled the way it was. She kept telling her teachers the book was wrong! There's no "g" in baloney!
