A first grade teacher was talking to her class about the effects of a person who stutters. She explained that they can’t help it and that they are never in any real danger. Just then, Mary raised her hand and said, “Teacher, that’s not true”. The little girl went on….”We had a cat who stuttered. There was a big rotweiler that lived over the fence from our house and we could hear it barking at our cat who liked to tease it by sitting there and stuttering. One day, the dog broke thru the fence and came after our cat. She just sat there with her hair raised and back arched going “Ssssss, Sssss, Sssss”, and before she could say “shit”, the dog ate her”.

The teacher had to leave the room.
