It was parent conference day at the local elementary school and
Martha was talking to the teachers about her seven sons all named
Leroy. The boys' teachers were wondering how the Martha can separate
the boys since they all have the same name. Their teacher asked "So
Martha, when you want one of the boys to clean his room what do you
Oh, that's easy, replied Martha, I just yell for Leroy and they all come running to clean up.
"Well, what if you need one of the boys to come in and set the dinner table"? asked the teacher.
"I do the same thing, just yell for Leroy and they all come in and help me set the table" replied Martha.
"What about if you only want one of your boys to do something and not all seven of them, what then" asked the teacher?
"Oh, well in that case I just use their last names."
