One says he thought the greatest invention was the Thermos. One guy piped up with, "what's so great about the Thermos? All !t does is keep liquids cold or hot." The reply was, "well sir, what's great about it is - how's it know to keep it warm or hot?" Class Assignment From Danny Matthews The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get your parents to tell you a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day they came back and began to tell their stories. There were all the regular+types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved. Only William was left. "William, do you have a story to share?" "Yes, ma'am. My daddytold a story about my Aunt Karen. She was a pilot in Desert Storm and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy terri- tory, and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife. She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break. Her parachute landedher right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops. She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets. She killed four more with the knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands." ~'Good Heavens," said the teacher. "What did your daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?" "Stay away from Aunt Karen when she's been drinkin'." Kids Dad was packing for a business trip. His three-+year-old daughter was play- ing on the bed. At one point she said, +4 'Daddy, look at this,' and stuck out two Of her fingers. Trying to keep her entertained, Dad / reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in his mouth and said, 'Daddy's gonna -' eat your fingers,' pretending to eat them. Dad went back to packing, looked up again and his daughter was standing on the bed "staring at her fingers with a devastated look on her face. Dad said, 'What's wrong, honey?' She replied, 'What happened to my booger?'
