Bringing up boys: What ARE they teaching them at school!!!!!

Much giggling and snickering as only little boys can do was going on last night as The Boy had a friend for a sleepover, the very first one we have hosted. I couldn't help but eavesdrop and my how illuminating I found it when I could make out the words over the sound of laughter. I am surprised The Boy could say anything at all he was cracking up so much. I was quite concerned about some of the things I heard, much of it very ribald but I suppose I had better get used to it  living with boys!
Curious to know from whence he learned such a ribald rhymes I asked over breakfast. He looked at me straight and said they were taught it by the maths teacher!!!!!
Now I wonder what mathematical principal he was trying to illustrate......

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
I don't know what they did up there
But they came back down with a daughter!
