it takes a minute to 'get' this one so persevere!)
A teacher asks her class to use the word 'contagious' in a sentence.
Roland the class swot, gets up and says, "Last year I got the measles
and my Mum said it was contagious." "Well done, Roland" says the
teacher. "Can anyone else try?" Katie, a sweet little girl with
pigtails, says, "My grandma says there's a bug going round, and it's
contagious." "Well done, Katie" says the teacher. "Anyone else?" Little
Irish Shaun jumps up and says in a broad Irish voice, "Our next door
neighbour is painting his house with a two-inch Brush and my Dad says it
will take the contagious."
