Pulled the pin

.... on face b00k. Got and email from a friend, saying my photo was all over some other site?! (knew I shouldn't have used that naked shot on my profile!... i'm kidding!) That was the last straw. Pulled the pin.

Didn't really like it anyway. I like my blog. And reading my friend's blogs. ;) Who needs stinkin' FB when all my friends are here?!!

I just opened this in my email... my goodness... I really needed a good laugh! Hope you get a chuckle out of it too!!! Specially you Janet, Polar Bear Mama & Shannon! (and any other teacher that I've shamefully neglected!)

Kids are quick. . .

TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America .
MARIA: Here it is.
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America ?
CLASS: Maria.
TEACHER: John, why are you doing your math multiplication on the floor?
JOHN: You told me to do it without using tables.
TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell 'crocodile?'
TEACHER: No, that's wrong
GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.
TEACHER: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
TEACHER: What are you talking about?
DONALD: Yesterday you said it's H to O.
TEACHER: Winnie, name one important thing we have today that we didn't
have ten years ago.
TEACHER: Glen, why do you always get so dirty?
GLEN: Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you are.
TEACHER: Millie, give me a sentence starting with 'I.'
MILLIE: I is..
TEACHER: No, Millie..... Always say, 'I am.'
MILLIE: All right... 'I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.'
TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry
tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louie, do you know why his father didn't
punish him?
LOUIS: Because George still had the axe in his hand.
TEACHER: Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?
SIMON: No sir, I don't have to, my Mom is a good cook.
TEACHER: Clyde , your composition on 'My Dog' is exactly the same as
your brother's. Did you copy his?
CLYDE : No, sir. It's the same dog.
TEACHER: Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when
people are no longer interested?
HAROLD: A teacher

Of course, no offense is intended on the last one... but geez, it does apply to some teachers!!!

Ooo! I just remembered something funny H-man said the other day.
He was standing in line, at school, and he kept running out of line to go pick up a stick, or run around etc. I got all cranky at him and said "That's enough. You need to stand in line, and listen to your teacher. You better not behave like this when I'm not here. I'm tellin' ya, you better pull your socks up mister". Him and his friend standing next to him, both look down at H-man's feet. He's wearing sandals. H-man looks all confused "but I don't have socks on?"!! I couldn't help it, I bust out laughing. And explained, it was a figure of speech - just something people say, when they mean you need to be on your best behaviour. H-man still looks confused and says "but what's it got to do with socks?"!!!

Geez it was funny. He's right. What does good behaviour have to do with socks?!!!

I only joined FB so I could read something Pug Mama sent me. I just never quite understood why everyone liked it so much.

Thanks for the laugh this morning!

*Snort* (and here you thought I was only about the sheep.)

Believe me, I hate feet. When I say 'pull your socks up' I MEAN it ;0)

I LOVED it! Especially the "I am the ninth letter of the alphabet. Tee hee. I could just SEE that happening to me!
