One day in Billy's 3rd grade class, the teacher asked each kid to stand up and tell what their father did for a living.

When it was Billy's turn, he stood and looked down shyly.

"Well" he said, "my dad was arrested once for armed robbery, was caught selling drugs and went to jail for a while and is now an exotic dancer at some bar."

"When he's home, he's always yelling at us, even if we not doing anything wrong." he said sadly.

"Thank you Billy," the teacher said. Billy sat down and the rest of the kids finished their stories.

After class, the teacher asked to talk with Billy.

"Billy," she said, "Did all of that really happen to your father."

"Well," he said, "I lied."

"I thought so," said the teacher.

"What does your dad really do?" she asked.

"He works for George Bush and I was to embarresed to tell anyone!"
