One day in class
brought a bag full of fruit
. "Now class, I'm going to reach into the bag and describe a piece of fruit, and you tell what fruit I'm talking about. Okay, first: it's round, plump and red."
Of course, Johnny
raised his hand high, but the teacher, wisely ignored him and picked Deborah, who promptly answered "An apple." The teacher replied, "No Deborah, it's a beet, but I like your thinking
." Now for the second. It's soft, fuzzy, and colored red and brownish."
Well, Johnny is hopping up and down in his seat trying to get the teacher to call on him. But she skips him again and calls on Billy."Is it a peach?"Billy asks."No, Billy, I'm afraid it's a potato. But I like your thinking,"the teacher replies. Here's another: it's long, yellow, and fairly hard."
By now Johnny is about to explode as he waves his hand frantically. The teacher skips him again and calls on Sally. "A banana," she says. "No," the teacher replies, "it's a squash, but I like your thinking."
Johnny is kind of irritated now, so he speaks up loudly. "Hey, I've got one for you teacher; let me put my hand in my pocket. Okay, I've got it: it's round, hard, and it's got a head on it." "Johnny!" she cries. "That's disgusting!" "Nope," answers Johnny, "it's a quarter
, but I like your thinking!"
A little girl
was talking to her teacher
. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.
The little girl stated that Jonah
was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, "When I get to heaven
I will ask Jonah". The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell
?" The little girl replied, "Then you ask him"
Two men Tom and Paul are chatting as they work.
Tom says: "I've been attending night classes for 5 months now and I have an exam next week."
Tom: "For example, do you know who is Graham Bell?"
Tom: "He's the inventor of the phone in 1876. If you take night courses you would know this."
The next day, the same discussion took place.
Tom: "Do you know who Alexander Dumas is?"
Tom: "He's the author of 'The 3 Musketeers'! If you take night courses, you would know this."
The next day, once again:
Tom: "And do you know who Jean Jacques Rousseau is?"
Tom: "He's the author of 'Confessions', if you take night courses, you would know this."
This time, Paul got irritated and said: "And you, do you know who John Smith is?"
Paul: "He's the guy roaming with your wife! If you stop night courses, you would know!"
