Little Moishie Goldberg was the only Jewish kid in his entire school. While he got along with mostly everyone, one teacher – Mr. White was particularly mean.

One day Mr. White was teaching his class what the world “stupid” mean. He asked his class whoever thought they were stupid to stand up.

Little Moishie stood up, alone.

Mr. White grinned and said, “Moishie, you think you’re stupid?”

“No,” Moishie replied. “But I didn’t want you standing up there alone.”
