Trouble with Harry
Trouble with Harry
A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks was having trouble with Harry, one of her students. The teacher asked, "Harry what is your problem?"
Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the first-grade. My sister is in the second-grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the third-grade!"
Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office. While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained the situation to the principal. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give
the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his questions he was to o back to the first-grade and behave. She agreed.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.
Principal: "What is 3x3?"
Principal: "What is 6x6?"
And so it went with every question the principal thought a third-grade should know.
The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the third grade."
Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions?"
The principal and Harry both agree.
Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"
Harry, after a moment, "Legs."
Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"
Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"
Ms. Brooks: "What starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious, and contains a thin whitish
Ms. Brooks: "What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?"
The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry was taking charge.
Ms. Brooks: "What does a man do standing up, a woman do sitting down and a dog do on three legs?"
The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer.
Harry: "Shake hands"
Ms. Brooks: "Now I will ask some 'Who am I' sort of questions, okay?"
Ms. Brooks: "You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do. Who am I?"
Ms. Brooks: "A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you're bored. The best man always has me first. Who am I?"
The Principal was looking restless and a bit tense.
Harry: "Wedding Ring"
Ms. Brooks: "I come in many sizes. When I'm not well, I drip. When you blow me, you feel good. Who am I?"
Ms. Brooks: "I have a stiff shaft. My tip penetrates. I come with a quiver. Who am I?"
Ms. Brooks: What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?
Harry: "Fire truck"
The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last ten questions wrong myself."
