    Jokes # 2

    Hi teachers,


    1) Girl: Can you drive with one hand?
    Boy (with excitement): Yes of course,
    Girl: Then wipe your nose with other hand.

    2) Always keep your picture in your pocket. You know why?
    Whenever you face problems, just see your picture & say 3 times. "If I can face this, I can face anything."

    3) Sunny: (reading from book of facts) "Do you know that every time I breathe a man dies?"
    Wicky: "Why don't you use a mouth wash?"

    4) A little girl asked her father that all fairy tales begins with "once upon a time"?
    The father replied, "No, some begins with - If I am elected."

    I would like to ask if there's any grammar mistake like symbols?

    Many thanks in advance.

    See above for my amendments. What do you mean when you say "grammar mistakes, like symbols"? Do you mean the punctuation?

    Hello, david.
    Well, I don't quite agree with you on that point.
    The father says, "No,....."
    If the girl asked why, then the father would probably reply, "Because..." or something similar.

    What do you think?

    Hello,

    The father didn't agree with what the girl is saying(From what I have understood).

    "No(Not all the tales begin with "Once upon a time"), some begin with - If I am elected."

    As emsr2d2 pointed out, "if" is correct. You could also use "whether".

    Can we ask questions with "If or Whether"?
