Little James was sitting in class doing math problems when his teacher picked on him to answer a question.
"James," she said, "if there were five birds sitting on a fence and you shot one with your gun, how many would be left?"
"None," replied James, "because I would shoot one and the rest would fly away."
"Well, the answer I was looking for is four," said the teacher, "but I like the way you are thinking."
Then Little James said, "I have a question for you now.
If there were three women eating ice cream cones in a shop, one was licking her cone, the second was biting the cone and the third was sucking the cone, which one is married?"
The teacher blushed and answered meekly, "Well, I’m not sure. I guess the one sucking the cone…"
"No," said Little James, "the one with the wedding ring on her finger, but I like the way you are thinking!"
