Teacher: You'd better have a good excuse for handing in your homework a day late.
Student: Well, yesterday my brain boiled dry in the heat.
Teacher: I've never heard such rubbish!
Student: But it's true, Miss, I promise.
Teacher: Stop wining and hand over the work.
Student: Here it is.
Teacher. Hm, not too bad considering the overcooked brain. I'll give you, 'Pass'.
Student: Oh, thank you, Miss.
