    That's got to be the first line of a joke, but it's not in my Bumper Book of Jolly Jokes by Arty Lafter.

    Does anybody know how it continues?

    I am not a teacher.

    That's what I thought too but a little search on the internet revealed that it's just an example of the present continuous from 'Advanced Grammar in Use" by Martin Hewings.

    But we shouldn't let that stop us from making up the rest of the joke though.

    So, the man turns to the kangaroo and says, "That was ace! How did you do that?" and the boomer hops away muttering, "Don't be a dill, mate. Roos can't talk."
