THE SPOTTED DOG
The preschool children were playing outside when the fire truck went by with its siren screaming. Upon their return to the classroom, one student asked the teacher why the “Spotted Dog” was beside the driver. Being a good teacher, she turned it into a learning experience and asked the students for their ideas.
Several students thought it was for crowd control at the site of the fire.
“The dog keeps the spectators back so the firemen can do their jobs”. Others thought it was a continuation of a tradition which brought good luck to the firemen.
Finally, Johnny said: “When they get to the fire, that’s the way they find the fire plug!”
THE BATHROOM SCALE
Two five-year-olds were examining a bathroom scale.
“How does this thing work?” asked Peter.
“I’m not exactly sure”, said his friend.
“All I know is you stand on it and it makes you angry”.
