Humor - Late for the Exam


It was the final examination for an introductory English course at the local university. Like many such freshman courses, it was designed to weed out new students, having over 700 students in the class!

The examination was two hours long, and exam booklets were provided. The professor was very strict and told the class that any exam that was not on his desk in exactly two hours would not be accepted and the student would fail. 1/2 hour into the exam, a student came rushing in and asked the professor for an exam booklet.

"You're not going to have time to finish this," the professor stated sarcastically as he handed the student a booklet.

"Yes I will," replied the student. He then took a seat and began writing. After two hours, the professor called for the exams, and the students filed up and handed them in. All except the late student, who continued writing. 1/2 hour later, the last student came up to the professor who was sitting at his desk preparing for his next class. He attempted to put his exam on the stack of exam booklets already there.

"No you don't, I'm not going to accept that. It's late." The student looked incredulous and angry.

"Do you know WHO I am?"

"No, as a matter of fact I don't," replied the professor with an air of sarcasm in his voice.

"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" the student asked again.

"No, and I don't care." replied the professor with an air of superiority.

"Good," replied the student, who quickly lifted the stack of completed exams, stuffed his in the middle, and walked out of the room.


Cool Fact


What medieval church is made entirely of salt?


The Wieliczka Salt Mine, located in Krakow, Poland, has over 125 miles (200 km) of underground passages and more than 2000 chambers carved entirely out of salt!

The largest chapel, the Chapel of the Blessed Kinga, is a chamber over 160 feet (50 m) long, 50 feet (15 m) wide, and 40 feet (12 m) high, located 330 feet (100 m) underground!

The mine, which has been a source of rock salt since the late 13th century, contains beautiful bas-relief sculptures, altars, immense chandeliers, and dozens of life-size or larger statues hewn out of the salt walls. In addition to the chapels, the mine houses an entire underground museum and a sanitarium for people with respiratory illnesses.


Humor - Ice Fishing


A drunk decides to go ice fishing, so he gathers his gear and goes walking around until he finds a big patch of ice. He heads into the center of the ice and begins to saw a hole.

All of sudden, a loud booming voice comes out of the sky. "You will find no fish under that ice."

The drunk looks around, but sees no one. He starts sawing again. Once more, the voice speaks, "As I said before, there are no fish under the ice."

The drunk looks all around, high and low, but can't see a single soul. He picks up the saw and tries one more time to finish. Before he can even start cutting, the huge voice interrupts. "I have warned you three times now. There are no fish!"

The drunk is now flustered and somewhat scared, so he asks the voice, "How do you know there are no fish? Are you God trying to warn me?" "No", the voice replied. "I am the manager of this hockey area!

Quotes by Steven Wright


I once tried to microwave instant coffee, and went back in time.

Black holes are where God divided by zero.

All those who believe in psychokineses raise my hand.

For Sale: Parachute. ONly used once, never opened, small stain.

Join the Army, meet interesting people, kill them.

I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.




A freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment.

In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide." And for plenty of good reasons:

1. It can cause excessive sweating and vomiting

2. It is a major component in acid rain

3. It can cause severe burns in its gaseous state

4. Accidental inhalation can kill you

5. It contributes to erosion

6. It decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

7. It has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients


He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical. Forty- three said yes and six were undecided. Only one knew that the chemical, "dihydrogen monoxide," was water.

The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?" He feels the conclusion is obvious.
