One Smart Boy (Joke) : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

The grade school principal dropped into the third grade teacher's room on the first day of school and asked how things were going.

"One problem, sir," the teacher replied, "that little boy in the front row should be in the second grade, but he insists on staying here. He's so smart I hate to send him back."

"He can't be that smart," the principal replied, "ask him some questions."

The teacher called the boy forward and asked, "What does a dog do on three legs that a man does on two legs and I do sitting down?"

"Shake hands," the boy said.

"What does a cow have four of that I have two of?" she asked.

"Legs," the boy replied.

"What is a four letter word meaning intercourse?" she continued.

"Talk," the boy replied.

The teacher turned to the principal. "Well, what should I do?"

He drew her aside and whispered. "Promote him to the fourth grade. I missed all three questions."

Okay Ken,

One bad joke deserves another...

A father and his son decided to try ice fishing for the first time. The two gathered their gear, headed out on the ice, and started fishing. Neither of them were having any luck. After a few hours, the son looked around and saw several people with stringers of plump fish lying beside them on the ice. The father told his son to scout around and find out what their secret was. A few minutes later, the boy came running back breathless. "Dad! Dad! First you've got to drill a hole!!

Hear about the three dimwits who drowned trying to put a basement under their ice shack?

Ken, I do not know what to think of the following:

I was reading some of the chicken jokes to my kids except the two not for kids jokes. [Thanks to you everyone. We had the most enjoyable evening laughing together.]

But, when I saw Ken's joke I changed it a bit. I didn't read the teacher/principal dialogue. I just read this one part: "What does a dog do on three legs that a man does on two and I do sitting down?"

Our son quickly answered,"Pee!" I looked shocked, but a giggle, then another came out. I know I shouldn't have laughed but I was already in a giggling mood after all those chicken jokes.

He was so very logical and serious as he explained why his answer was correct. (Male dog, a man, a woman.) He couldn't understand why I was laughing! In fact, he convinced me there was nothing to laugh about. After all, he is right!
