“Dad, I don’t want to go to school today,” said the boy.”
“Why not, son?” the dad replied.
The boy said, “Well, one of the chickens on the school farm died last week and we had chicken soup for lunch the next day. Then three days ago one of the pigs died and we had roast pork the next day.”
The dad was confused and said, “But why don’t you want to go today?”
The boy started to cry and said, “Because our English teacher died yesterday!”
