A fish and a monkey enter a classroom

"The classroom is full of different animals, fish and monkeys, but also squirrels, penguins, birds, dogs, cats and sheep. It’s a nice mix. The teacher comes into the classroom and tells them that there will be an exam today. He opens the window and points towards a tree. The test consists of climbing that tree. The fish cannot move from their water and the sheep are looking at each other puzzlingly. The penguins have already accepted they will fail. The birds know it will require little effort. The monkeys and cats need to plan a bit how they will climb the tree, but it shouldn’t be too difficult. The dogs will find it quite a struggle."(Hon Evarist Bartolo Minister for Education and Employment, 30 November 2016)
