That statement alone is funny, but couple it with what happened in class today ...
When I give spelling tests, I say the word twice, followed by a sentence which I make up using the word, and then the word a third time. Today, the word "children" was on the list.
"I believe that children are the future; teach them well and let the lead the way.
"That's the in the Bible, isn't it?"
"No, that's something George W. Bush said."
