Stuff to make you laugh

What's green and grows and has wheels? (Answer at end of post)

How does a homeschooler change a lightbulb?

First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life.
Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles.
Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five dollar bill.
On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill.
Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed.
And there is light.

Heaven is: French chefs, British police, German mechanics, and Italian lovers, all organized by the Swiss.
Hell, on the other hand, is: British chefs, German police, French mechanics, and Swiss lovers, all organized by the Italians."

    British police? Britain is becoming a surveillance society where individuals are filmed hundreds of times a day by security cameras and where firms 'data mine' to build customer profiles. Hardly the place I would want to visit let alone live.
