The Teacher and the Student



A teacher walked into the class and said, "Today, children, we are going to do some maths problems. Tell me, Billy, if three birds are on a fence and you shoot one of them how many would be left?"  



Billy replied, "None, the shot bird would fall to the ground and the other two birds would be frightened away by the noise."  



The teacher said, "The actual answer is two, but I like the way you're thinking."



"Let me ask you a question," said Billy. "Three women are eating a lollipop, one is licking it, one is crunching it and one is sucking it. Which of the three women is married?"



"I'm not sure Billy, I'll say the one who is sucking it," said the teacher.



"No," said Billy, "the correct answer is the one wearing the wedding ring, but I like the way you're thinking!"
