Tommy's parents had tried everything to help his math grade: tutors, flash cards, Hooked on Math, special learning centers, everything. When nothing worked, in desperation they enrolled him in the local Catholic school.
On the very first day, he came home with a serious look on his face, went straight to his room, and started studying. His mother was amazed. Books and paper were spread out everywhere, and Tommy was hard at work. As soon as dinner was through, he went right back up to his room without a word to study some more. This went on for weeks, until he proudly brought home his report card and showed it to his parents:
"Look! An A in math!"
"Tommy! This is great! I'm so proud of you, son! Tell us, what was it? What helped to motivate you? Was it the nuns?"
Tommy shook his head.
"Well, then, was it the books? The discipline? The structure? The uniforms? What?"
Tommy looked at his mother and said, "Well, Mom, it's like this. When I saw that guy in the lobby nailed to a plus sign, I knew they weren't screwing around."
We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)
