Sunday Funnies 2011.08.21

School starts this week, both for the kids (Yay!) and me (Boo!). It's like the Circle of Life, but with books.

Q: What do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?

A: A college professor

Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son.

'Wake up, son. It's time to go to school'

The son whined 'But why, Mom? I don't want to go.'

Mom said 'Give me two reasons why you don't want to go.'

The son replied 'the students hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!'

Mom: 'Oh, you're exaggerating. Now get up and get ready.'

Son: 'Give me two reasons why I should go to school.'

'Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the Dean!'

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education. - Mark Twain

I took a test in Existentialism. I left all the answers blank and got 100. - Woody Allen

My school was so tough the school newspaper had an obituary section. - Norm Crosby

The 3rd grader is excited about learning new things (bless her little heart), the 8th grader is anxious to see friends and the senior is freaked out.

The mother is delightfully counting down the hours.
