One day after lunch, sixth grade science teacher Mrs. Ward asks her class: “Who can tell me which organ of the human body expands to 10 times its usual size when stimulated?”

Not one student raised their hand, so Mrs. Ward calls on the first student to look her way. “Kelly, can you tell me which organ of the human body expands to 10 times its usual size when stimulated?”

Kelly stands up, her face is extremely red. “How dare you ask such a question?” she says. “I’m going to tell my parents, who will complain to the principal, who will have you fired!”

Mrs. Ward is stunned by Kelly’s reaction, but undaunted. She asks the class the question for a second. This time Robbie raises his hand. “Yes, Robbie?” says Mrs. Ward.

“Ma’am, the correct answer is the iris of the human eye.”

“Very good, Robbie. Thank you.” Mrs. Ward replied.

Then she turns to Kelly and says, “Kelly, I have 3 things to tell you: first, it’s clear that you have not done your homework. Second, you have a dirty mind. And third, I fear one day you are going to be sadly disappointed.”
