Joke of the Day



What organ can expand to 10 times it's size...

What organ can expand to 10 times it's size...

The 6th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parks, asked her class, "Which human body part increases to ten times its size when stimulated?"

No one answered so the teacher picked on a random student

Little Mary stood up and said, "You should not be asking sixth graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the principal, who will then fire you!"

Mrs. Parks ignored her and asked the question again, "Which body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?"
Little Mary's mouth fell open. Then she said to those around her,

"Boy, is she going to get in big trouble!"

The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class,

"Anybody?"

Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, "The body part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye."

Mrs. Parks said, "Very good, Billy," then turned to Mary and continued.

"As for you, young lady, I have three things to say:
One, you have a dirty mind. Two, you didn't read your homework And three, one day you are going to be very, very disappointed."

Dammit!

I was just posting in the why you won’t leave Louisiana thread and it vanished.

So here it is.

Louisiana was colonized by the French and Spanish who from the start were here to make themselves and their families wealthy. Nepotism was the way it worked. That legacy of thinking has persisted over the centuries.

So why leave a cushy setup? You may call it corruption but to me it’s a great way to earn a living.

I ain’t going no where especially to Nebraska where your state history textbook is probably 10-12 pages.
