Joke 290

8 Jan

The kids had all arrived in the high school sophomore English class, and were chatting away, making new friends.  In walked a very stern looking English teacher and a hush fell over the room as the kids scurried to their seats.  The teacher silently panned his gaze across all the kids.  After about a minute or so, he spoke:

“From the outset, I want you all to know that there are two words that are absolutely unacceptable in this classroom.  You cannot use them as you recite, or in any of your papers, tests, or homework.  Using these words even once, will get you a failing grade for that quarter.  The first one is “gross” and the other one is “cool”.  Are there any questions?”

After a few moments of silence, a gawky teen at the back of the room raised his hand, and the teacher called upon him.  In a pubescent croaking voice, the kid asked, “So, what are they?”

    I love teacher humor. You just know those creatures in the last cartoon are going to eat the fat kid. Dianne


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
