“Teacher: You missed school yesterday, didn’t you? Pupil: Not very much!”

A pun about missing school is:

Teacher: You missed school yesterday, didn’t you?
Pupil: Not very much!


The joke—with “Not a bit!” as the punchline—was printed in many newspapers in July 1961.


10 July 1961, Austin (TX) Statesman, “Fun Time—The Riddle Box,” pg. 18, col. 5:
Teacher: Billy, you missed school yesterday, didn’t you?
Billy: Not a bit!
