Subj:     Daddy Sleeps Naked (S621, S767)
          From: mauryschu on 12/4/2008
      and From: virv on 9/24/2011

 'Late again,' the third-grade teacher said to little Sammy.

 'It isn't my fault this time, Miss Crabtree.  You can blame
 this'un on  my daddy.  The reason I'm three hours late is
 my daddy sleeps naked!'

 Now Miss Crabtree had taught grammar school for thirty-some-
 odd years.  Despite her mounting fears, she asked little
 Sammy what he meant by that.

 Full of grins and mischief, and in the flower of his youth,
 little Sammy and trouble were old friends, but he always
 told her the truth.

 'You see, Miss Crabtree; out at the ranch we got this here
 low down Coyote.  The last few nights he done et six hens
 and killed Ma's best milk goat.  Last night, when Daddy
 heard a noise out in the chicken pen, he grabbed his shot
 gun and said to Ma, 'That coyote's back again, I'm a gonna
 git him!''

 'Stay back,' he whispered to all us kids.  He was naked as
 a jaybird, no boots, no pants, no shirt!'

 'To the hen house he crawl ed, just like an Injun on the
 snoop.  Then he stuck that double barreled 12 Gauge shot
 gun through the window of the coop.  As he stared into the
 darkness, with coyotes on his mind, our old hound dog Zeke
 had done woke up and comes sneaking' up behind Daddy.  Then
 as we all looked on plumb helpless, old Zeke stuck his cold
 nose in Daddy's crack!

 'Miss Crabtree, we all been cleanin' chickens since three
 o'clock this Mornin.

Subj:     Little Johnny Scares Little Mary (S583c)
          LABLaughsAdult on 3/21/2008
Little Johnny
from Yahoo! Images
 Little Johnny and Little Mary were walking home from school
 one day. As they walked along, they saw two dogs knotted up
 along side the road,doing it, well, doggy style.

 "What are they doing, Johnny?" Mary asked. Well, Little
 Johnny, being a man of the world for all his 12 years, knew
 what they were doing but was embarrassed to say it, so he
 said, "Well, he's scaring her." Little Mary said, "Oh."

 They walked a little farther, and Little Mary said, "Scare
 me, Little Johnny." Well, Little Johnny thought, "What the
 Hell." So he took her into the bushes and "scared" her.

 After they were finished, they started walking home again.
 Pretty soon,they walked past a stallion mounting a mare in
 the field. "What are they doing, Little Johnny ?", she asked.
 "Well, he's scaring her." So LittleMary said, "Scare me
 again, Johnny." Well, Little Johnny took her into the bushes
 and "scared" her again.

 After they were finished, they started walking home again.
 Pretty soon,you guessed it, they saw a bull and a heifer in
 the field, going at it.

 "What are they doing, Little Johnny?" she innocently (?)
 asked again. "Well, he's scaring her" Little Johnny said
 once again. After a few more minutes of walking, Little Mary
 said, "Scare me again, Little Johnny."

 Now Little Johnny, being a little tired by now, had just
 about had enough, so he yelled out,
 "Boo, damn it, boo!"

Subj:     What The Teacher Said (S628c)
          From: LABLaughsClean on 1/22/2009

  What the teacher says and (what the teacher means)

  1. Your son has a remarkable ability in gathering
     needed information from his classmates.
     (He was caught cheating on a test).

  2. Karen is an endless fund of energy and viability.
     (The hyperactive monster can't stay seated for five

  3. Fantastic imagination! Unmatched in his capacity for
     blending fact with fiction.
     (He's definitely one of the biggest liars I have ever

  4. Margie exhibits a casual, relaxed attitude to school,
     indicating that high expectations don't intimidate her.
     (The lazy thing hasn't done one assignment all term).

  5. Her athletic ability is marvelous. Superior hand-eye
     (The little creep stung me with a rubber band from 15
     feet away).

  6. Nick thrives on interaction with his peers.
     (Your son needs to stop socializing and start working).

  7. Your daughter's greatest asset is her demonstrative
     public discussions.
     (Classroom lawyer! Why is it that every time I explain
     an assignment she creates a class argument).

  8. John enjoys the thrill of engaging challenges with
     his peers.
     (He's a bully).

  9. An adventurous nature lover who rarely misses
     opportunities to explore new territory.
     (Your daughter was caught skipping school at the
     fishing pond).

 10. I am amazed at her tenacity in retaining her
     youthful personality.
     (She's so immature that we've run out of diapers).

 11. Unlike some students who hide their emotion,
     Charles is very expressive and open.
     (He must have written the Whiner's Guide).

 12. I firmly believe that her intellectual and
     emotional progress would be enhanced through a
     year's repetition of her learning environment.
     (Regretfully, we believe that she is not ready
     for high school and must repeat the 8th grade).

 13. Her exuberant verbosity is awesome!
     (A mouth that never stops yacking).

Subj:     No Child Left Behind - Football Version (S607b)
          From: bweidel on 8/23/2008

 The football version of what is going on in education
 right now. (If you're not an educator, this may not make
 a lot of sense to you.  But send it to your friends who
 are in education.  They will love it!)

 For all the educators. In or out of the system.


 1. All teams must make the state playoffs and all MUST win
 the championship.  If a team does not win the championship,
 they will be on probation until they are the champions,
 and coaches will be held accountable.  If after two years
 they have not won the championship their footballs and
 equipment will be taken away UNTIL they do win the

 2. All children will be expected to have the same football
 skills at the same time even if they do not have the same
 conditions or opportunities to practice on their own.  NO
 exceptions will be made for lack of interest in football,
 a desire to perform athletically, or genetic abilities or
 disabilities of themselves or their parents.


 3. Talented players will be asked to workout on their own,
 without instruction.  This is because the coaches will be
 using all of their instructional time with the athletes
 who aren't interested in football, have limited athletic
 ability or whose parents don't like football.

 4. Games will be played year round, but statistics will
 only be kept in the 4th, 8th, and 11th game.

 It will create a New Age of Sports where every school is
 expected to have the same level of talent and all teams
 will reach the same minimum goals.  If no child gets
 ahead, then no child gets left behind.

Subj:     Wet Pants In Third Grade (S527b)
          From: darrell94590 on 2/12/2007

 Come with me to a third grade classroom...  There is a nine-
 year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there
 is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are
 wet.  He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot
 possibly imagine how this has happened.

 It's never happened before, and he knows that when the boys
 find out he will never hear the end of it.  When the girls
 find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as he lives.

 The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head
 down and prays this prayer, "Dear God, this is an emergency!
 I need help now!  Five minutes from now I'm dead meat."

 He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a
 look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.  As the
 teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is
 carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water.  Susie
 trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the
 bowl of water in the boy's lap.

 The boy pretends to be irritated, but all the while is saying
 to himself, "Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"

 Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule,
 the boy is the object of sympathy.  The teacher rushes him
 downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants
 dry out.  All the other children are on their hands and knees
 cleaning up around his desk.  The sympathy is wonderful.  But
 as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his
 has been transferred to someone else - Susie.

 She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. "You've done

 Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the
 bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, "You did that
 on purpose, didn't you?"

 Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."

Subj:     The Polite Way To Pee (S526)
          From: jbcary1 on 2/21/2007
Little Johnny
from Yahoo! Images
 During one of her daily classes a teacher trying to teach
 good manners, asked her students the following question:

 "Michael, if you were on a date having dinner with a nice
 young lady, how would you tell her that you have to go to
 the bathroom?"

 Michael said, "Just a minute I have to go pee."

 The teacher responded by saying, "That would be rude and

 What about you Peter, how would you say it?" Peter said,
 "I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom.
 I'll be right back."

 "That's better, but it's still not very nice to say the
 word bathroom at the dinner table

 And you, little Johnny, can you use your brain for once
 and show Us your good manners?"

 I would say: "Darling, may I please be excused for a
 moment?  I have to shake hands with a very dear friend
 of mine, whom I hope you'll get to meet after dinner."

 The teacher fainted.
