Mothers Can Be Embarrassing

(I hope I do not offend anyone)

One day a fourth-grade teacher asked the children what
their mothers did for a living.

All the typical answers came up — teacher, nurse,
businesswoman, Saleswoman, doctor, lawyer, and so forth.

However, little Justin was being uncharacteristically
quiet, so when the teacher prodded him about his mother,
he replied, “Well my mother’s an exotic dancer in a
cabaret and takes off all her clothes in front of men
and they put money in her underwear. Sometimes, if the
offer is really good, she will go home with some guy and
stay with him all night for money.”

The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly
set the other children to work on some exercises and then
took little Justin aside to ask him, “Is that really true
about your mother?”

“No,” the boy said, “She works for the Democratic
National Committee
and is helping to get Hillary Clinton
to be our next President, but I was too embarrassed to
say that in front of the other kids.”
