Final Exam Review
The final exam in electrical engineering worried my son, Brandon. On the last day of class, the professor wished the students luck as he wrote a phone number on the blackboard. "If any of you have difficulty understanding the review material, call this number," he said as he dismissed the class.
On Saturday afternoon, stumped by one of the review problems, Brandon reached for the phone and heard a recorded message from Dial-A-Prayer.
The Thesis Topic
Scene: It's a fine sunny day in the forest, and a rabbit is sitting outside his burrow, tippy-tapping on his typewriter. Along comes a fox, out for a walk.
Fox: "What are you working on?"
Rabbit: "My thesis."
Fox: "Hmm... What is it about?"
Rabbit: "Oh, I'm writing about how rabbits eat foxes."
Fox: "That's ridiculous! Any fool knows that rabbits don't eat foxes!"
Rabbit: "Come with me and I'll show you!"
They both disappear into the rabbit's burrow. After a few minutes, gnawing on a fox bone, the rabbit returns to his typewriter and resumes typing. Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the hardworking rabbit.
Wolf: " What's that you are writing?"
Rabbit: " I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat wolves."
Wolf: " you don't expect to get such rubbish published, do you?"
Rabbit: " No problem. Do you want to see why?"
The rabbit and the wolf go into the burrow and again the rabbit returns by himself, after a few minutes, and goes back to typing. Finally a bear comes along and asks, "What are you doing?
Rabbit: " I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat bears."
Bear: "Well that's absurd!
Rabbit: "Come into my home and I'll show you"
As they enter the burrow, the rabbit introduces the bear to the lion.
Moral: It doesn't matter how silly your thesis topic is. What matters is who you have for a teacher.
In the context of the working world: It doesn't matter how bad your performance is; what matters is whether your boss likes you.

A Note from the Teacher
A wise school teacher sends this note to all parents on the first day of school:
"If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at school, I'll promise not to believe everything he says happens at home."
Hygiene Teacher: How can you prevent diseases caused by biting insects?
Kyle: Don't bite any.
"Oh, master, tell me of fate."
"Ah, my son, it is what has brought great nations together. It has made the world a smaller place in which to live. It has inspired men of worth to work endless hours. It will some day enable men to span the universe and light years of travel will soon become mere seconds in time."
"And that, my master, is fate?"
"Oh, FATE! I thought you said FREIGHT."
Father to his son after final exams: "Let me see your report card."
Son: "My friend just borrowed it. He wants to scare his parents."
