    The third-grade teacher was teaching English and repeated for her
    class: "Mary had a little lamb, whose fleece was white as snow/And
    everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go."

    She explained this was an example of poetry, but could be changed to
    prose by changing the last line from "the lamb was sure to go" to "the
    lamb went with her."

    A few days later, she asked for an example of poetry or prose. Johnny
    raised his hand and said,

    "Mary had a little pig --
    An scrawny little run.
    He stuck his nose in Mary's Clothes
    And smelled her little . . ."

    He stopped, turned to the teacher, and asked, "Do you want poetry or
    prose?"

    "Prose!" the teacher said weakly.

    So Johnny said, " . . . A**hole."
