Johnny’s teacher tells her class, “Class, I’m going to ask you a question at 2:55 p.m. every Friday, and whoever answers it correctly will be excused from school on Monday.”

The students got really excited about this and were anxiously awaiting Friday afternoon to arrive. At precisely 2:55 pm, the teacher addressed the class. She said, “Students, this week’s question is, ‘What is the Pythagorean theorem?’”
After a long pause she said, “Well, I guess I’ll see you all on Monday.”

The teacher was teasing the children. She always planned to ask a question that no fifth grader could ever answer. Johnny was getting wise to the teacher’s scam. The following Friday, Johnny brought both his parents’ bowling balls to school. At 2:54 p.m., he rolled them down the aisle, and they crashed into the teacher’s desk. The teacher jumped up, came around the front of the desk, and yelled, “All right, who’s the comedian with the big balls?”
Johnny says, “Eddie Murphy! See you Tuesday!”

Last night I did stand-up in a bowling alley parking lot.
