OKLAHOMA CITY -- After Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin  compared teachers protesting for increased education funding for public schools to teenagers wanting a better car, teachers responded with a chant Wednesday.

Teachers followed Fallin up stairs at the Capitol, took out their keys and chanted "Where's my car!" Watch below:

In an interview with CBS on Tuesday, Gov. Mary Fallin said, "Teachers want more. But it's kind of like a teenager wanting a better car."
