My teacher friends will love this one!!!! 





Levity, anyone?..... 

(and particularly, anyone in possession of a slide rule (or even knows what one is) guaranteed to be subversive and clearly up to no good!)   


TEACHER ARRESTED IN NEW YORK  - A public school teacher was arrested today at JFK International Airport as he attempted to board a  flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass,  a slide-rule and a calculator.   At a morning press  conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the  man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. 


He  did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with  carrying weapons of math instruction.  'Al-Gebra is a  problem for us', the Attorney General said. 'They derive  solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on  tangents in search of absolute values.'  They use secret code names like 'X' and  'Y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have  determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis  of medieval with coordinates in every country.  As the  Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides to  every triangle'.  

When asked to comment on the arrest,  President Obama said, 'If God had wanted us to have better  weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers  and toes.'     

White House aides told reporters they  could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by  President Obama -  It is believed that another Nobel Prize will follow---
