Joke of the Week

One day a little girl came home from school, and said to her mother, "Mom, today in school I was punished for something that I didn't do."

The mother exclaimed, "But that's terrible! I'm going to have a talk with your teacher about this... by the way, what was it that you didn't do?"

The little girl replied, "My homework."
