You can’t say you weren’t warned

Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprimand the child. Smiling sweetly, the Sunday school teacher said:

— Johnny, when I was a little girl, I was told if that I made ugly faces, it would freeze and I would stay like that.

Little Johnny looked up and replied:

— Well, Ms Smith, you can’t say you weren’t warned.
