Crazy Teacher?

The teacher noticed that Johnny had been daydreaming for a long time. The teacher decided to get his attention.

"Johnny," the teacher said, "If the world is 25,000 miles around and eggs are sixty cents a dozen, how old am I?

"Thirty-four," Johnny answered unhesitatingly.

The teacher replied "Well, that's not far from my actual age*. Tell me...how did you guess?"

Oh, there's nothing to it," Johnny said. "My big sister is seventeen and she's only half-crazy."

[* Note that the equivocal answer suggests that the teacher was in fact female :-)]
