What Does Your Daddy Do?

It's the first day of school and the teacher thought she'd get to know the kids by asking them their name and what their father does for a living.

The first little girl says: "My name is Mary and my daddy is a postman."

The next little boy says: "I'm Andy and my Dad is a mechanic."

Then one little boy says: "My name is Jimmy and my father is a striptease dancer in a cabaret for gay men."

The teacher gasps and quickly changes the subject, but later in the school yard the teacher approaches Jimmy privately and asks if it was really true that his Dad dances nude in a gay bar. He blushed and said, "I'm sorry but my dad is a trial lawyer and I was just too embarrassed to say so."

(When I was younger, I heard a cleaner version of this one, where the teacher asked the kids to draw what their fathers did for a living. One kid was drawing circles on the page. "What does your father do?" the teacher asked. "He's a doctor. He makes rounds.")
