A second-grade teacher was having problems with one of her students. One day, she asked Johnny what was his problem and he replied, “I’m too smart for the second grade, my sister is in third grade and I’m smarter than her.
“The teacher took him to the principal’s office and explained the situation to him. The principal told him that he would test Johnny and if he did not answer one question, he would go back to grade two and be quiet. The teacher and Johnny both agreed.
Principal: “What is 3 x 3?” Johnny: “9.” Principal: “6 x 6?” Johnny: “36.”So, it went on like this.
The principal asked him every question a third grader should know.
Finally, after about an hour, he told the teacher, “I see no reason why Johnny can’t go to the third grade, he answered all of my questions right.
“The teacher asked if she could ask him some questions.
The principal and Johnny agreed.
Teacher: “What does a cow have 4 of that I only have 2 of?”Johnny:
“Legs.”Teacher: “What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?”
The principal gasped, but before he could stop him from answering, Johnny answered.
Johnny: “Pockets.”Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”
Teacher: What starts with F and ends with K and means a lot of excitement?”
The principal breathed a big sigh of relief and said: “Put Johnny in the fifth grade, I got the last 4 questions wrong myself.”
This Kid Wanted A Car And Made A Deal With His Dad
I laughed aloud when I found this story yesterday and I just had to share it with you. Shared joy is a double joy!
Laughter is the best medicine, as they say – and I tend to agree with this cliche. In fact, I’ve actually heard scientists claim that laughing well and often leads to a longer life, and I have no problem believing it is true. In any case, here is the story!
A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.
The dad said he’d make a deal with his son:
“You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut. Then we’ll talk about the car.”
The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.
After six weeks his father said, “Son, you’ve brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I’m disappointed you haven’t had your hair cut.”
The boy said, ”You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there’s even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.”
To this, his father replied, “Did you also notice that they walked everywhere they went?”
