Strong competition

Mr Overbite, Mr Four-Eyes and Mr Follicly-Challenged were competing to see who could be the most self-deprecating.

“The perverse arrangement of my teeth gives me a weak chin, which reflects badly on my character,” asserted the first.

Determined to outdo him the second said, “Far from making me look intelligent, my spectacles only accentuate the fact that I have weak eyesight and so renders me vulnerable.”

The third scoffed, “That’s nothing, my bald pate has younger men thinking I’m older and less virile than I am and therefore a total pushover.”

The sound of the school bell interrupted their discussion and they had to jump out of the way of the crowds rushing full pelt into the playground.
