    First Day Of School

      Little Johnny was attending his first day of school. The teacher advised the class to start the day with the pledge of allegiance, and instructed them to put their right hands over their hearts and repeat after him. He looked around the room as he started the recitation, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..." When his eyes fell upon Little Johnny, he noticed his hand over the right cheek of his buttocks.

    "Little Johnny, I will not continue until you put your hand over your heart."

    "Because, every time my Grandma comes to visit, she picks me up, pats me here, and says, ‘Bless your little heart,’ and my Grandma wouldn't lie!"
