On the first day of school after vacation, Miss Clarke addressed her second grade class with special instructions:
"Now children, please tell the class about your vacation, and try to use adult words, as we must practice our vocabulary."
Little Bobby Thompson raised his hand.
"On my vacation, I saw a-choo choo," Bobby said.
"A train, Bobby, you saw a train. Please try to use the proper, adult word."
"Ok, I saw a train."
"Good. OK, now Sharon, what did you do on your vacation?"
"I got to pet a moo-moo," Sharon excitedly blurted.
"Sharon, please use the correct word. You went to a farm, and what did you do?"
"Um, I got to pet the cow."
"Good job. Now, Katie. What did you do on vacation?"
Katie sat thinking at her desk for a moment.
"Well, I read a book. It was called Winnie...the Shit."
