logo- community news & viewsThe late Art Linkletter of TV fame used to have a program where he asked youngsters questions just to find out exactly what the kids were thinking.  Some of the answers were extremely funny and that’s why his TV show lasted so long.

Well, this reporter has come up with some good comments made to teachers during school years:

Teacher:  “Maria, go to the map and find North America.”

Maria:  “Here it is!”

Teacher:  “Correct.  Now class, who discovered America?”

CLASS:  “Maria!”


Teacher:  “John, why are doing your math multiplications on the floor?”

John:  “You told me to do it without using tables.”

Teacher:  “Glenn, how do you spell ‘crocodile’?”

Glenn:  “K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L.”

Teacher:  “No, that’s wrong!”

Glenn:  “Maybe it is wrong but you asked me how I spell it.”


Teacher:  “Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?”

Donald: “H I J K L M N O.”

Teacher:  “What are you talking about?”

Donald:  “Yesterday you said it was H to O.”


Teacher:  “Winnie, name one important thing we have today that we didn’t have ten years ago.”

Winnie:  “ME!”


Teacher:  “Glenn, why do you always get so dirty?”

Glenn:  “Well, I’m a lot closer to the ground than you are.”


Teacher:  “Millie, give me a sentence starting with ‘I’.”

Millie:  “I is…..”

Teacher:  “No Millie….Always say, “I am.”

Millie:  “All right…I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.”


Teacher: “George Washington not only chopped down his father’s cherry tree, but also admitted it.  Now Louie, do you know why his father didn’t punish him?”

Louie:  “Because George still had the ax in his hand.”


Teacher:  “Now Simon, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?”

Simon:  “No sir, I don’t have to.  My Mom is a good cook!”


Teacher:  Clyde, your composition on ‘My Dog’ is exactly the same as your brother’s.  Did you copy his?

Clyde: “No, teacher.  It’s the same dog.”


Teacher:  Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?”

Harold:  “A teacher.”


If you think the answers from kids were interesting, let’s look at grown-ups in the everyday working world:

A lady went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco.  She asked the person behind the counter for “minimal lettuce.”  He said that he was sorry, but they only had iceberg!


Did you hear about the individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the sake of her own life, couldn’t understand why her system would not turn on?  This happened at a Dallas County Sheriff’s office!


In a semi-rural area a new neighbor called the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on her road.  The reason:  Too many deer were being hit by cars and she didn’t think that her road was a good place for the deer to be crossing anymore!

Laugh and the world laughs with you!  When you’re down and out, look around you.  If you wait for a few minutes, something interesting will catch your eye and give you a good laugh.  Nothing is better than people-watching!  AND, nothing is better for you than a good laugh!!
