(Looking at a pupil's copybook) "Well, Dennis you should
never begin a sentence with 'because'".
Dennis: "Why not?"
Teacher: "Because I say so."
Dennis: "I ain't got a pencil."
Teacher: "Dennis, please, it's 'I haven't got a pencil, you haven't got a pencil, he hasn't got a pencil, she hasn't got a pencil'".
Dennis: "Well, who 'as got a pencil then?"
Teacher: "Dennis, please, give me a sentence that begins with 'I'".
Dennis: "I is ..."
Teacher: "No, no Dennis, you should always say 'I am'".
Dennis: "OK then, 'I am the ninth letter of the alphabet'".
