were doing their maths homework. It was
‘Why is ten scared of seven?’ asked Ned.
‘I don’t know’ said Nellie.
‘Because seven ate nine, and ten is next!’
Nellie didn’t laugh.
‘That’s not very funny’ she said.
‘Why?’ asked Ned.
‘Because they shouldn’t eat each other of course’.
They went back to their homework.
‘What about this’ said Ned. ‘If I’m holding six oranges with my left hand and five apples with my right hand, and I drop one apple and two oranges, what do I have?’
‘Very big hands!’ laughed Nellie.
‘That wasn’t supposed to be a joke’ said Ned, ‘It’s
in our homework, look’.
‘Oh, right’ said Nellie.
‘Ned, why isn’t your nose twelve inches long?’
question?’ asked Ned looking at his homework book.
‘It’s a riddle silly!’ said Nellie.
‘Oh, because erm…..because I don’t tell lies?’
‘Because it would be a foot’ giggled Nellie.
Ned didn’t laugh. ‘I don’t get it’.
’ she shouted pointing to his shoe and then his ruler.
Daddy walked into the room. ‘If there were four pizzas, one big bowl of chips, three vanilla ice creams and one chocolate ice cream, two cokes and bottle of wine, what would we have?
‘No’ said Daddy.
Now hurry up and finish your homework, Mummy and I are starving!’
