A teacher is giving a lesson about math. She says to the class, “If you have three birds sitting on a fence, and you shoot one of them, how many are left?” A little boy stands up and says, “None.” The teacher shakes her head and says, “Why?”. The little boy says, “because the shot scared them all off.” The teacher says, “No, two. But I like the way you’re thinking!” The boy decides to give his own lesson. He says, “If you see three women coming out of an ice cream parlor, and one is licking her ice cream, one is sucking her ice cream, and one is biting her ice cream, which one is married?” The teacher replies, “The one sucking her ice cream.” “No”, says the boy, “the one with the wedding ring. But I like the way you’re thinking!”
