Little Johnny strikes again and more!

The teacher asked the class to use the word 'fascinate' in a sentence.

Molly put up her hand and said, 'My family went to my granddad's farm and we all saw his pet sheep.  It was fascinating.'

The teacher said, 'That was good, but I wanted you to use the word fascinate, not fascinating'.
Sally raised her hand.  She said, 'My family went to see Rock City and I was fascinated.'

The teacher said, 'Well, that was good Sally, but I wanted you to use the word 'fascinate.'

Little Johnny raised his hand.  The teacher hesitated; she’d been burned by little Johnny before.

She finally decided there was no way he could damage the word 'fascinate', so she called on him for his offering.

Johnny said, 'My aunt Carol has a sweater with ten buttons, but her boobs are so big she can only fasten eight.'

The teacher sat down and cried.

Name the 50 states

Father William, the old priest, made it a practice to visit the parish school one day a week. He walked into the 4th grade class, where the children were studying the states, and asked them how many states they could name. They came up with about 40 names.  Father William jokingly told them that in his day students knew the names of all the states.

One lad raised his hand and said, "Yes sir, but in those days there were only 13 states."
