Default OT: Monday Humor

Jesse Jackson is visiting a primary school and he
visits one of the
classes. They are in the middle of a discussion
related to words and their
meanings. The teacher asks the Rev. Jackson if he
would like to lead the
discussion on the word "tragedy". So the illustrious
leader asks the class
for
an example of a "tragedy".

One little boy stands up and offers: "If my best
friend, who lives
on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway
tractor comes along and
knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy."
No," says the Great Jesse Jackson," that would be an
accident."

A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus
carrying 50
children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside,
that would be a
tragedy."
"I'm afraid not," explains the exalted spiritual
leader. "That's
what we would call a great loss."

The room goes silent. No other children volunteer.
Rev. Jackson searches the room. "Isn't there someone
here who can
give me an example of a tragedy?"

Finally at the back of the room a small boy raises his
hand. In a
quiet voice he says: "If a jet carrying the Rev. &
Mrs. Jackson were
struck by a missile and blown to smithereens, that
would be a tragedy."
"Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson, "That's right. And can
you tell me
why that would be tragedy?"

"Well," says the boy, "because it certainly wouldn't
be a great
loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."
