A Little Humor: Classroom Questions

I recall going to school in South Philadelphia some years ago with my friend Dan. 

Dan was not very bright. 

One day in English class the teacher asked the students, “What do we call a phrase or sentence that negates itself.”

The teacher’s pet, a goofy little guy named Norman, yelled out, “An oxymoron!”

Dan looked at me and said, “Isn’t an oxymoron a dumb ox?”

Today Dan is a congressman.
