Great Loss



George W. Bush was visiting an elementary school, and the 4th grade class he sat through began a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the President if he would like to lead the class in a discussion of the word “tragedy.” So, George W. asked the class for an example of a tragedy.



One boy stood up and said, “If my best friend who lives next door is playing in the street and a car comes along and runs him over, that would be a tragedy.” “No,” said Bush, “that would be an accident.



” A girl raised her hand and said, “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone on board, that would be a tragedy.” “I’m afraid not,” the President said. “That’s what we would call a Great Loss.”



The room went silent. No other children volunteered. President Bush searched the room and asked, “Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?” Finally, way in the back of the room, Johnny raised his hand, and in a quiet voice, he said, “If Air Force One, carrying Mr. and Mrs. Bush, was struck by a missile and blown up to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.” “That’s right! And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?” asked the President. ”



Well,” Johnny said, “because it wouldn’t be an accident and it sure wouldn’t be a Great Loss…”

Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was

really pissed.



She told him “Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the

driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE !!”



The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke

up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box

gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway.



Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought

the box back in the house.



She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.



Bob has been missing since Friday.



A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, “Everyone who thinks they’re stupid, stand up!”



After a few seconds, Little Johnny stood up.



The teacher said, “Do you think you’re stupid, Johnny?”



“No, ma’am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!”



The fourth-grade teacher had to leave the room for a few minutes. When she returned, she found the children in perfect order, everybody sitting absolutely still.



She was shocked and stunned. “I’ve never seen anything like this before. This is wonderful. But, please tell me, what came over all of you? Why were you so well-behaved and quiet?”



From the back of the room Little Johnny piped up, “One time you said that if you ever came back and found us quiet, you’d drop dead.”

A priest is walking down the street one day when he notices a very small boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street.

However, the boy is very small and the doorbell is too high for him to reach. After watching the boy’s efforts for some time, the priest moves closer to the boy’s position. He steps smartly across the street, walks up behind the little fellow and, placing his hand kindly on the child’s shoulder leans over and gives the doorbell a sold ring. Crouching down to the child’s level, the priest smiles benevolently and asks, “And now what, my little man?”

To which the boy replies, “Now we run!”
