A first-grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students.
The teacher asked, “Little Johnny what is your problem?”
Little Johnny answered, “I’m too smart for the first-grade. My sister is in the third-grade and I’m smarter than she is! I think I should be in the third-grade too!”
The teacher had had enough.
She took Little Johnny to the principal’s office.
While Little Johnny waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was.
The principal told the teacher he would give the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the first-grade and behave.
The teacher agreed.
Little Johnny was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.
Principal: “What is 3 x 3?”
Little Johnny: “9”.
Principal: “What is 6 x 6?”
Little Johnny: “36”.
And so it went with every question the principal thought a third-grade should know.
The principal looks at the teacher and tells her, “I think Little Johnny can go to the third-grade.”
The teacher says to the principal, “Let me ask him some questions?”
The principal and Little Johnny both agree.
The teacher asks, “What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?”
Little Johnny, after a moment, “Legs.”
Teacher: “What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?”
The principal wondered, why does she ask such a question!
Little Johnny replied, “Pockets.”
Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”
Little Johnny: “Pants”
Teacher: What’s starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin whitish liquid?
Little Johnny: Coconut
The principal’s eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer,
Little Johnny was taking charge.
Teacher: What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?
Little Johnny: Bubblegum
Teacher: 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.
Little Johnny: Shake hands
Teacher: Now I will ask some “Who am I” sort of questions, okay?
Little Johnny: Yep.
Teacher: You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do.
Little Johnny: Tent
Teacher: A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you’re bored. The best man always has me first.
Principal was looking restless and bit tense.
Little Johnny: Wedding Ring
Teacher: I come in many sizes. When I’m not well, I drip. When you blow me, you feel good.
Little Johnny: Nose
Teacher: I have a stiff shaft. My tip penetrates. I come with a quiver.
Little Johnny: Arrow
Teacher: What word starts with an ‘F’ and ends in ‘K’ that means a lot of excitement?
Little Johnny: Firetruck
The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, “Put Little Johnny in the fifth-grade, I missed the last ten questions myself.”
