A matter of size

The following joke came up during today's lecture on vision:

Mrs. Jones' Grade One class was learning about the five senses. As a primer to her lesson, she posed a question: "What body part grows to ten times its normal size when excited?"

Little Sally stuck up her hand. "Mrs. Jones, that's disgusting! What kind of filth are you trying to teach six-year-old schoolchildren? I'm going to tell the principal about this!"

Mrs. Jones paused, then turned to little Sally and reprimanded, "Sally, please, put your hand down and be quiet. Try to show some respect." Then she continued, "Now let me ask again, does anybody know what body part grows to ten times its normal size when excited?"

Sally burst out again, "Mrs. Jones! Ew! You have a dirty mind! You better stop or I'm going to call Children's Aid."

Mrs. Jones, becoming exasperated, again chastised, "Sally, please be quiet. Now I'm going to ask one more time - does anyone know what body part grows to ten times its normal size when excited?"

Little Johnny put up his hand, slightly red in the face. "Yes, Johnny?" prompted Mrs. Jones. "Well... I think I might know the answer..." began Johnny. "It's... the pupil!"

"Yes! That's correct," gushed Mrs. Jones. Then, turning to Sally, she frowned and added, "As for you, young lady, I have three things to say. First of all, you should learn to read your homework before answering in class. Second of all, you have a very dirty mind. And thirdly, you're going to be very disappointed when you grow up."
