Bob was a little clingy as Jeff was dropping him off at Sunday school. The sweet, young teacher, Miss Maria, was working to engage Bob in an art project.
“Look Bob, today we are making these jellyfish.”
“Hey, check those out Buddy. Aren’t they cool?” said Jeff.
“That’s a plate?” Bob asked.
“That’s right. We take half of a paper plate and we’ll use that as the jellyfish’s body. You can color it. Would you like to make one?”
“Bob, let’s say that nicely,” said Jeff.
“Yes please, Miss Maria.”
“Sure, Bob. We can use these colorful streamers to make his testicles,” said Miss Maria. She paused, and instantly paled as she realized her anatomical gaffe. Jeff smiled.
“Tentacles, we’ll make tentacles,” corrected Miss Maria.
“We can do both, Miss Maria?” asked Bob.
Contrary to the evidence, Miss Maria is not a blood relative.
