Two boys are walking down the street. The first boy says, “Ive been really busy this summer. I’ve been teaching my dog to talk.”
His friend responds, “Wow! I can’t wait to have a conversation with your dog.”
The first boy shakes his head. “I said I’ve been teaching him. I didn’t say he learned anything.”
