Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the room. The teacher says:

“Why are you arguing?”

One boy answers, “We found a ten dollar bill and decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie.”

“You should be ashamed of yourselves,” said the teacher,

“When I was your age I didn’t even know what a lie was.”

The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher.
