Johnny Gets Bumped Up To Fifth Grade

It’s been awhile and I reckon it’s time for a bit of humour.

It all began when Johnny decided that he was too smart for the first grade and that he should really be in the third grade. Unuble to contain himself any longer he goes up to his teacher and insists she puts him in the third grade. At first she ignores him but he persists until she ushers him into the principal’s office and explains the situation to him.

The principal decides to test Johnny while his teacher watches, but first he lays down the rules and tells johnny that if he fails to answer any of the questions he is to go back to the first grade and behave himnself. Johnny agrees.

“What is three times three?” says the principal.

“Nine”, says Johnny.

“What is six times six?”


“What is nine time nine?”


The questioning goes on for awhile and Johnny keeps getting them all right. The principal then turns to the teacher and tells her that in his opinion Johnny is ready for the third grade.

The teacher who knows hoy Johnny has the tendency to revert to sexual wisecracks asks the principla if she could ask him some questions. The principal tells her to go ahead.

She asks, “What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?”

“Legs,” replies Johnny.

“What is in your pants that you have that I don’t have?” asks the teacher.

The principals eyes open wide and before he can interject to stop Johnny’s expected answer, he says, “Pockets.”

The principal breathes a sigh of relief and says to the teacher, “I think that Johnny deserves to be in the 5th grade because I missed those last two questions myself.”
