#506: South Africa: Mind your I's and your Are's


Every morning, when the old lady teacher came to the Afrikaans students
for an English lecture she greeted them with "Good morning, class!"

Yet everytime one boy out of the whole class room would get up to greet
the teacher in return.

This happened time and again until she decided to call him up to her
desk and ask him, loud enough for everyone to hear, "Why is it that
every time I greet the whole class, only you stand up to greet me?"

He replied to the teacher in his best English: "It is 'cause I are the
only person in this class what's name are Klaas!"
