A first grade teacher, Ms. Brooks was having trouble with
one of her students. The teacher asked, "Harry, what is your problem?"

Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister
is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter that she is! I think I should be in
the 3rd grade too!" Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the
principal's office.

While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher
explained to the principal what the situation was. The
principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test and if he
failed to answer any of this questions he was to go back
to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed. Harry was brought
in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal: "What is 3 x 3?" Harry: "9"

Principal: "What is 6 x 6?" Harry "36"

And so it went with every question the principal thought a
3rd grader should know. The principal looks at Ms. Brooks
and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade."

Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions." The
principal and Harry both agreed. Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have
four of that I have only two of?" Harry, after a moment: "Legs."

Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do
not have?" The principal wondered, why does she ask such a question!
Harry replied: "Pockets"

Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"
Harry: "Pants"

Ms. Brooks: "What starts with a C and ends with a T, is
hairy, oval, delicious and contains a thin, whitish liquid?"
Harry: "A coconut"

Ms. Brooks: "What goes in hard and pink then comes out
soft and sticky?"
Harry: "Bubblegum"

Ms. Brooks: "What does a man do standing up, a woman do
sitting down and a dog does on three legs?" The principal's eyes
open really wide, but before he could stop the answer,
Harry answers "Shake hands."

Ms. Brooks: "What word starts with F and ends in K that
means alot of heat and excitement?" Harry: "Firetruck"

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the
teacher, "Put Harry in the 5th grade, I got the last
seven questions wrong."
