Humor--Jokes From Real life.

Updated on April 19, 2015

Kids! The darndest things they wisely come up with!! If you are a teacher, then you know what we are talking about. We will never forget those days in grammar and middle school when life was easier. Actually, seems like it was the day before yesterday. Back then (1976) friends were cool and use to make clean jokes and silly pranks; nothing like getting mad for anything, not even closer to those kids from Columbine.

Let's share some joyful moments leaked from a retired school teacher. Well, let's check some answer to a real test and how smart they were...!

Karl, a middle school teacher handed the social studies questions to his students. The morning came for the ones who didn't perform good enough in social studies and history. But let's introduce "Marky." This buddy of ours did not study, as usual, the weekend before -- was going to call him "Joshy," but thought Janine would leave a longer and hilarious comment.

Marky was this 14 years old kid, who was more interested about listening (downloading for 2015) his favorite tune, and talking to his girlfriend on the phone (smartchat) than studying... as he should've been. He tried to do his "best," and probably he could've done better by doing what he was supposed to do. Without much ado, here are his answers to some 'general studies' questions

  • When did Charlemagne die?

Answer: On the day he stopped breathing

  • Where was signed our declaration of Independence?

At the bottom of the page

  • What's the first cause of divorce?

Well, that is an easy one: marriage

  • What happens if we throw a piece of chalk on a blue river?
  • It gets soaking wet
  • How can you stay awaken for 10 days non stop? (like Josh)
  • Sleep during the nights. That was a tricky one!
  • How can we hold an hippopotamus with one hand?
  • Haven't seen an hippopotamus with one hand! Not yet.
  • What cannot you eat at lunch time?
  • breakfast and dinner!! Whew!

  • If you need ten guys to build a house, how long would it take to build the same house with 5 guy?
  • None! The wall was already built by the 10 guys.
  • If you hold 2 apples and 1 orange in one hand, and two oranges and 1 apple on the other hand, what do you have?
  • Two big hands for sure!
  • What does an orange cut in half looks like?
  • Like the other half!
  • What did Pythagoras and Newton do for the human race?
  • Give us headaches and nightmares
  • Why is math so hard for you?
  • Never saw a softer math. Is hard enough to deal with!

  • If you see a friend getting drown in a swimming pool, would you jump to save his/her life?
  • Well, I can't swim for sure. But I did jump one time; that's when I got pushed from behind. Gee!

"Dear Mark,

We thoroughly appreciate your wise answers, but take this memo for your parents to read, and make sure to get it signed. Otherwise, you will stay back one more year.

Best regards, Karl Mayer."

    Marcoujor, Sure! the main cause for divorce is marriage according to this smartie! Not that we hate marriage but in a way he was right. Ops!

    @RHW, we feel for future generations. Education has been left aside for ingernational affairs and senseless wars. Hope you can teach one day. You have a great sense of humor!

    Debbie and TToombs, these kids are smarter that any politician making money at Congress. Thanks for stopping by! You ladies are awesome!

    @Easy KJ!! Still dodging your words of appreciation for this fun hub. You are so right, so many kids with that mentality had kids of their own and, we live everyday thinking if that day is our last one....but seriously, we all need to have common sense regarding internal violence. Thanks again!

    Well Joseph, I would be laughing harder than I am, but having taught for eighteen years I have seen many of these answers, and a part of me is almost in tears. LOL Great hub....wait, did you say Josh was funny? I must have missed that. I'll have to go visit his hubs again and see if I can find any humor in them. :) Oh yes, you can tell him I wrote that.

    As always, a pleasure to read.
