Mrs Daly: "Gerald, would you care to decline a noun today?"
Gerald: "gladly"
Mrs Daly:"then why aren't you getting up and going to the chalkboard?"
Gerald: "I declined, didn't I? I'll decline the verb too, and anything else that would make me get out of this chair "
*THWAP* (eraser hits Gerald) *POOF* (cloud of chalk dust erupts)
Mrs Daly: "You were saying, Gerald?"
