Outside the box

Mrs. Jones, the math teacher, asks little Jimmy, "If there were 5 birds sitting on a phone line and you shot and killed one, how many would be left?"

Jimmy answers "None."

Mrs. Jones shakes her head. "No," she explains, "if there were 5 birds and you shot one, then 5 take away 1 leaves 4 birds left."

Jimmy shakes his head and replies, "No. If I shot and killed one of the birds, the others would fly away, 'cause they'd see how good a shot I was."

Mrs. Jones smiles and says "Good point. I like the way you think.:

Jimmy looks up and says "Now I have a question for you. Three woman are eating ice cream, and one is licking it, one is sucking it, and one is biting it. Which one is married?"

Mrs. Jones thinks for a bit and says, "Ummmmm..., the one biting it?"

Jimmy smiles and says, "No, the one with the wedding band on. But I like the way you think."
