Who Signed It?

A Kentucky teacher was quizzing her students. “Johnny, who
signed the Declaration of Independence?” He said, “Damn if I
know.” She was a little put out by his swearing, so she told him
to go home and to bring his father with him when he came back.

Next day, the father came with his son, sat in the back of the
room to observe. She started back in on her quiz and finally got
back to the boy. “Now, Johnny, I’ll ask you again. Who signed
the Declaration of Independence?” “Well, hell, teacher,” Johnny
said, “I told you I didn’t know.” The father jumped up in the
back, pointed a stern finger at his son, and said, “Johnny, if
you signed that damn thing, hell, you damn well better admit it!”
