Here is a joke I got in my e-mail today:
A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find
out something exciting and relate it to the class the next
When the time came to present what they’d found, the
first little boy the teacher called on walked up to the front
of the class, and with a piece of chalk, made a small white
dot on the blackboard and sat back down.
Puzzled, the teacher asked him what it was.
“It’s a period,” he replied.
“I can see that,” said the teacher, “but what is so exciting
about a period?”
“Darned if I know,” he said, “but this morning my sister
was missing one. Mommy fainted, daddy had a heart attack and
the boy next door joined the Navy.”
(Shakes head) I’d shit my pants if that happened to me while I was teaching class.
