A teacher asks her class to use the word 'contagious'.
Roland, the class geek, gets up and says, "Last year I got the measles and my Mum said it was contagious."
"Well done, Roland" says the teacher. "Can anyone else try?"
Katie, a sweet little girl with pigtails, says, "My grandma says there's bug going round, and it's contagious."
"Well done, Katie" says the teacher, "Anyone else?"
Little Irish Shaun O'Malley jumps up and says in a broad Irish voice, "Our next door neighbor is painting his house with a two-inch brush and my Dad says "it will take the contagious".
