Winnie the WHAT?

A kindergarten class was trying very hard to adjust to first grade. The biggest hurdle the kids faced was that the teacher insisted on NO baby talk! "You need to use big people's words," she was always reminding them.

She asked John what he had done over the weekend. "I went to visit my nana," he told the class.

"No, you went to visit your GRANDMOTHER. Use big people's words!"

She then asked Michelle what she had done.

"I took a ride on a choo-choo," Michelle answered.

She said. "No, you took a ride on a TRAIN. You must remember to use big people's words."

The teacher then asked little Alex what he had done? "I read a book," he replied. "That’s WONDERFUL!," the teacher responded. "What book did you read?"

Alex thought real hard about it, then puffed out his chest with great pride and said, "Winnie the Shit.”
