How will his teacher like this one?

First graders do a lot of poetry memorization here. Every week or two, Benjamin comes home with a new poem he has to learn and then recite in class. This week, in the spirit of Christmas, he brought home a poem about Santa Claus.

It was supposed to start something like this:
    "If I were Santa Claus,
    And if I were tired,
    I would like to rest in a big stork's nest (nid de cigogne)."

But when Benjamin recites it, he says this:
    "If I were Santa Claus,
    And if I were tired,
    I would like to rest in a big bed of cigars (lit de cigares)."

Personally, I think his way is much funnier.
