That was the headline on page 16 of the 21/8/2010 edition of Uganda’s paper ‘Saturday Vision’. I thought it so funny I have reproduced it in full below.

The Biology teacher asked students during class:

Would you please name the organ of the human body, which under the appropriate conditions, expands to six times its normal size, and define the conditions?”

One girl shot up: Teacher, I don’t think that is a proper question to ask. I assure you the headmaster will hear of this! Our parents …” With that she sat down.

Unperturbed, the teacher asked again the same question. Another student put up his arm and with composure, replied, “The pupil of the eye, in dim light.” “Correct!” said the teacher, as he turned to the first student. “As for you, I have three things to say to you: “One, you did not read the chapter I told you to read, two, you have a dirty mind and three, you will some day be faced with dreadful disappointment.”
