A academy teacher, Ms. Fanny, was having trouble
with one of her students. The teacher asked,
"Michael, what's your problem?"
Michael answered, "I'm too smart for the 9th grade.
My brother is in the 11th grade and I'm smarter than
he is! I think I should be in the 11th grade too!"
Ms. Fanny had had enough.
She took Michael to the Stuperintendent's office.
While Michael waited in the outer office, the teacher
explained to Dr. LaBeaver what the situation was.
LaBeaver told Ms. Fanny he would give the boy a test.
If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to
go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.
Michael was brought in and the conditions were
explained to him and he agreed to take the test.
LaBeaver: "What is 3 x 3?"
LaBeaver: "What is 6 x 6?"
And so it went with every question LaBeaver thought
a 9th grader should know. LaBeaver looks at Ms. Fanny
and tells her, "I think Michael can go to the 11th grade."
Ms. Fanny says to LaBeaver, "Let me ask him some questions."
LaBeaver and Michael both agreed.Ms. Fanny asks,
"What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"
Michael, after a moment: "Legs."
Ms. Fanny: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"
LaBeaver wondered why she would ask such a question!
Michael replied: "Pockets."
Ms. Fanny: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"
Ms. Fanny: What starts with a C, ends with a T,
is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?"
LaBeaver sat forward with his mouth hanging open.
Ms. Fanny: "What goes in hard and pink then
comes out soft and sticky?"
LaBeaver's eyes opened really wide and before he
could stop the answer, Michael replied, "Bubble gum."
Ms. Fanny: "What does a man do standing up,
a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?"
Michael: "Shake hands."
LaBeaver was trembling.
Ms. Fanny: "What word starts with an 'F'
and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?"
LaBeaver breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher,
"Put Michael in the 12 grade,
I got the last seven questions wrong....
