SyllablesThe first grade teacher was starting a new lesson on multi-syllable words.
She thought it would be a good idea to ask a few of the children examples of words with more than one syllable.
"Molly, Do you know any multi-syllable words?"
"After some thought Molly proudly replied with Monday."
"Great Molly. That word has two syllables, Mon......day"
"Does anyone know another word."
"I do!" replied Mikey. "OK Mikey, what is your word."
"Saturday." says Mikey.
"Great, but that has three syllables..."
Not wanting to be outdone Johnny says "I know a four syllable word."
Not thinking he can do any harm with a word that large the teacher reluctantly says, "O.K. Johnny what is your four syllable word?"
Johnny proudly says, "Mas...tur...ba...tion."
Shocked, the teacher, trying to retain her composure says, "Wow, Johnny. Four syllables! That's certainly is a mouthful."
"No Ma'am, your thinking of 'blowjob', and that's only two syllables."
