Jenkins, a 5th grade teacher at Muncie High School, Indiana, set her class
the following math problem: "A wealthy man dies and leaves behind ten
million dollars. One-fifth is to go to his wife, one-fifth is to go to his son,
one-sixth to his butler, and the rest to charity. Now, what does each get?"
After a very long silence in the classroom, little Johnnie raised his hand and
Miss Jenkins asked him for his answer. With complete sincerity in his voice,
little Johnnie answered, "A lawyer!"
lawyers & judges: #7, #25, #68, #89, #90, #91, #175, 239, 263, 348, 349
