Our teacher asked what's my favorite animal
and I said, "Fried chicken."
She told me I'm not funny,
but she couldn't have been right
because everyone else laughed.
My parents told me to always tell the truth.
I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.
I told my dad what happened,
and he said my teacher is
probably a member of PETA.
He said they love animals very much.
I do, too. Especially chicken.
Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too.
Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class, my teacher asked me
what's my favorite LIVE animal?
I told her it is chicken.
She asked me why, so I told her,
"It is because you can make
them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal's office.
He laughed, and told me not to do it again.
I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest,
but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked me to tell her
what famous person I admired most.
I told her, "Colonel Sanders."
Guess where I am now...
