Once upon a time there was a little boy going to school.

Once upon a time there was a little boy going to school. One day he was very bold and the teacher was going to punish him. "If you no not slap me I will bring you the bantam's egg in the morning." When the boy was going home from school he had to pass through a field of turnips. He pulled and peeled a small turnip. Next morning he walked bravely to the master and said "Here's the egg I said I'd bring you."
"But this is not an egg Joe", said the master.
It is what she laid said Joe.
