Little Johnny, instead of an apple, would daily bring his new teacher a pretzel from his uncle’s bakery.
She always thanked Little Johnny but one day she said,
“These pretzels are very good but do you think your uncle could make them with no salt?”
Every day afterwards the pretzel was salt-free.
After a while, the teacher felt she was making too much extra work for Little Johnny’s uncle to make them without salt, especially for her.
“Little Johnny, I hope your uncle is not going to have a great time preparing the pretzel without salt?”
“Oh no,” replied Little Johnny,
” he doesn’t make them without salt. I lick the salt off.”
