A teacher asks her class to use the word 'contagious'. Roland the teacher's pet, 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 a bug going round, and it's contagious.' 'Well done, Katie,' says the teacher. 'Anyone else?' Little Sean jumps up and says in a broad Dublin accent, 'Our next door neighbour is painting his house with a 2 inch brush, and my dad says it will take the contagious.'
