Difficulties of a Student

The Evening School classes in a town in the West of Scotland were attended for the most part by workers in the adjoining ship-yards in the days when Scottish shipbuilding was a major employer. As the students had been showing commendable zeal in their desire to overcome certain deficiencies in their earlier education, a Professor of English was invited to visit the class in his subject with the object of adding a further stimulous to their efforts at self-improvement.

No sooner had the Professor entered the classroom than a voice from the back benches was heard to exclaim : *Hey Sir! A've nae pencil!"
Seizing the opportunity to introduce a touch of learning, the Professor addressed the class in general and the interrupter in particular :-
    "I have no pencil
    Thou hast no pencil
    He has no pencil
    We have no pencils
    You have no pencils
    They have no pencis."
    "Weill" came the aggrieved voice again "whae's got aw the bloomin pencils?"
