An young Irish teacher is giving her kids an English lesson. "Now kids", she says, "Can anyone give me a sentence with the word contagious in it?". Ronan, he's the teachers pet, has his hand up straaaaaight away. "Miss, everyone says to steer clear of those with the flu, because it's contagious." "Well done, anyone else?", asks the teacher. "Yes miss" says Katie, "When I had the measles, ma said I hafta stay home as it's contagious". At this point the teacher is rather impressed, even moreso when she sees little Seamus up the back, still with his hand up. "Yes Seamie, a sentence too?" She asks. Seamus replies, "Yesterday me Da was watching our neighbour trying to paint his house with a 2 inch brush, says it's gonna take the contagious".
