    Default a joke

    Hello teachers could explaine to me to me the follwing joke espicially the last line which is "Now there are two!"


    A farmer has a field of watermelons. One day he
    notices that some of the local kids have been
    helping themselves to them (they've been taking
    watermelons and eating them).

    The farmer isn't happy and thinks of a way to stop
    them taking his watermelons. He puts up a sign in
    the field that says,

    "Warning:
    One of these watermelons contains cyanide!"

    The farmer returns a week later to discover that
    none of the watermelons have been eaten. He is
    very happy, but then notices that someone has
    written the following on his sign,

    "Now there are two!"

    Now there are two watermelons in the field containing cyanide.

    One of the local kids wrote "Now there are two!" to scare the farmer into believing that the kids put cyanide in another watermelon. They didn't of course, or maybe they did. The joke is that the farmer doesn't know for certain if there is a watermelon with cyanide in it. So, he can't eat or sell any of his watermelons. :(
