Joke of the day for June 16
An English public school was forced to raise its fees. The headmaster, Mr Jackson decided that the best way to raise the extra money was to institute an across the board 6% increase per annum. Unfortunately, when his secretary typed the letter, she missed out a crucial ‘n’ in the last word, consequently, the letter read thus:
Dear Mr Elsworth
Due to increased costs, I have decided reluctantly to raise the school fees by 7% per anum.
J.B. Jackson (Headmaster)
The following month, one concerned parent replied by saying:
I regret your increase in fees, but I would like to continue paying through the nose as before.
