An irate father stormed into the principals office. I demand to know, he screamed, why my son Winslow was given a zero on his English examination. Now, dont get excited, said the principal. Well get your Winslows English teacher in here. Im sure she has some explanation. A few minutes later, the English teacher arrived. Why did you give Winslow a zero on his English final? demanded the father. I had no choice, said the schoolmarm. He handed in a blank paper with absolutely nothing on it. Thats no excuse, shouted the father. You could have at least given him an A for neatness!
