An outraged fellow pupil at the back of the class immediately shouted: "Why was Mohammed allowed time off to spend his holidays at bingo?" "No, Mecca is a place." "I know it is, Sir," the enraged pupil exclaimed, "It's just down the road."
The teacher retorted: "No, it's a sacred place!" "That's what my Nan said to Granddad, so he is not allowed to go on Saturdays", came the reply.
Apparently, the Muslim boy sat through this exchange looking bemused.
