We who have taught, or love children who have been taught, know this is funny!
From the diary of a Pre-School Teacher
My five-year old students are learning to read.
Yesterday one of them pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said,
“Look at this! It’s a frickin’ elephant!”
I took a deep breath, then asked…”What did you call it?”
“It’s a frickin’ elephant! It says so on the picture!”
And so it does…
“A f r i c a n Elephant”
Hooked on phonics! Ain’t it wonderful?
Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often
Here is the 2500 page Obama Care condensed to 4 sentences…..
As it seems to be working, this is according to plan!
In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.
Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured.
To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges
to be re-insured.
The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became
un-insured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original
un-insured can be insured, free of charge to them.
An elderly man in the Atherton Tablelands in Queensland had owned a large farm for several years.
He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, a barbecue and some apple and peach trees.
One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn’t been there for a while, and look it over.
He grabbed a twenty litre bucket to bring back some fruit.
As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.
As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.
He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end.
One of the women shouted to him, ‘we’re not coming out until you leave!’
The old man frowned, ‘I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.’
Holding the bucket up he said,
‘I’m here to feed the crocodile…’
Some old men can still think fast.
Received this email from family. Thought it should be shared. Although from last year, I certainly hadn’t heard of it until now.
A large percentage of our country doesn’t know of or cares about Normandy. My guess is it has been removed from the text in History
A few weekends ago, British artists Jamie, accompanied by numerous volunteers, took to the beaches of Normandy with rakes and stencils in hand to etch 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen people into the sand. Titled The Fallen 9000, the piece is meant as a stark visual reminder of the civilians, Germans and allied forces who died during the D-Day beach landings at Arromanches on June 6th, 1944 during WWII. The original team consisted of 60 volunteers, but as word spread nearly 500 additional local residents arrived to help with the temporary installation that lasted only a few hours before being washed away by the tide.
