It was the first day of school in the USA for a new Indian student named Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade.
The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty or give me Death’?”
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand up.
“Patrick Henry, in 1775,” he said.
“Very good! Who said ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth’?”
Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar. “Abraham Lincoln, in 1863,” said Chandrasekhar.
The teacher snapped at the class, “Class, you should be ashamed… Chandrasekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do.”
She heard a loud whisper, “Damn those Indians.”
“Who said that?” she demanded.
Chandrasekhar put his hand up. “General Custer, in 1862.”
A brave young man indeed! 😉
And yeah, you’re the Friday Groaner.
Oh, oh, oh……..how delightful to start my day with a grin. 🙂
With apologies to all my blonde friends and relatives, I share this “blonde” joke with you – sent to me by my blonde sister-in-law.
A blonde woman was speeding down the road in her little red sports car and was pulled over by a woman police officer who was also a blonde.
The blonde cop asked to see the blonde driver’s license. She dug through her purse and was getting progressively more agitated.
‘What does it look like?’ she finally asked.
The policewoman replied, ‘It’s square and it has your picture on it.’
The driver finally found a square mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman. ‘Here it is,’ she said.
The blonde officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying, ‘OK,you can go. I didn’t realize you were a cop.’
PS – I also apologize to any female law enforcement officers who may read this. It’s all in fun.
This one is really subtle, isn’t it?! Thanks for sharing.
I’m so sorry you couldn’t leave notes. There must have been a strange burp in the system. Now you can? I sure hope so. I would dearly miss you if you couldn’t visit me.
