“I say these chiljen are incompetent! They are all going to fail!”
“The children, you say?”
“Yes, yes, the chiljen!”
The assistant wrote a word on the board. Then she pointed at it with her meter stick.
“Repeat after me, professor: ‘chil…drrren. Chil…drrrrrrrrren.’ Repeat!”
The professor piped up: “Chil…jen. Chil…j-j-jen.”
The assistant spanked the black off his bottom.
