On his first day at a new school, a headmaster was making rounds when he heard a terrible commotion from one of the classrooms. Marching in, he spotted one boy, taller than the others, who seemed to be making most of the noise. So he seized the lad, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there until he was excused.
Returning to the classroom, the headmaster restored order and lectured the class for ten minutes on good behaviour.
"Now," he concluded. "Any questions?"
One girl stood up timidly and asked: "Please, sir. May we have our teacher back?"
"Yes, where exactly is your teacher?"
The girl replied: "He's in the hall, sir."
