The Biggest Lie

SCRIPT

Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the class room.

T:   Why are you arguing?
B:     We found a ten dollar bill and we were arguing about who should

        take the money.
        And we finally decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie.
T:     Oh, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
        When I was your age I didn't even know what a lie was.

The boys gave the money to the teacher.
