Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

Schools are getting closer and closer to getting out for summer. Here are some scholarly jokes for your enjoyment.

Just before the final exam in 
my college finance class, a less-than-stellar student approached me.

“Can you tell me what grade 
I would need to get on the exam 
to pass the course?” he asked.

I gave him the bad news. “The exam is worth 100 points. You would need 113 points to earn a D.”

“OK,” he said. “And how many points would I need to get a C?”

*****

One hard thing to explain to teens is how legitimately exciting it used to be when someone would wheel in an overhead projector.

*****

“Give me a sentence about a public servant,” the teacher instructed her second-grade student.
“The fireman came down the ladder pregnant,” he answered.
“Umm … Do you know what pregnant means?”
“Yes,” said the boy. “It means 
carrying a child.”

*****

Question on second-grade math quiz: “Tony drank 1/6 of a glass of juice. Emily drank 1/4 of a glass of juice. Emily drank more. Explain.”

My grandson’s answer: “She was more thirsty.”

*****

Interviewing a college applicant, the dean of admissions asks, “If you could have a conversation with someone, living or dead, who would it be?”

The student thinks it over, then answers, “The living one.”

      I have to say, the one about the teacher bringing in the overhead projector really rang true to me … of course I’m considerably older than many, so the thrill may be limited to my age group. 😉
