Three Syllable Word

Little Johnny was in class and the teacher asked the class if anyone could think of a three syllable word.

Johnny starts waving his arms frantically and the teacher says, " yes Johnny?"

"Contageous" says Johnny.

"Thats very good Johnny but do you know what that means?" dad and I were watching from the livingroom window while mom shovelled snow and my dad said, "at this rate, it will take the cunt ages."
