The rhyme which follows *just * made it onto this page ... [sent in by a nine-year-old, so we figured most parents / teachers wouldn't object] ... ( please don't send in anything worse than this!! )

Mary had a little lamb
She tied it to a pylon
Ten thousand volts went up its bum
And turned its wool to nylon.

.................................................................................................... Solomon [aged 9]

(this was sent in as a true story .....)

An MIT student spent an entire summer
going to the Harvard football field every day
wearing a black and white striped shirt,
walking up and down the field for ten or fifteen minutes
throwing birdseed all over the field,
blowing a whistle and then walking off the field.

At the end of the summer,
it came time for the first Harvard home football game,
the referee walked onto the field and blew the whistle,
and the game had to be delayed for half an hour
to wait for the birds to get off the field.

The guy wrote his thesis on this, and graduated.

This was sent to us recently. We don't know where it originated (though we'd be very happy to credit the author!) Read it slowly and very carefully:

I'm not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate.
Read the full description before looking at the picture.

You are going to look at a photo which has two identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary's Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical.

A closely monitored, scientific study of a test group revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress will find differences in the two dolphins.

If there are many differences found between both dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a great amount of stress. Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences, you may be in desperate need of time away from work! Now click here .....

And just received:

A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment
to a couple of his friends late one night.
When they made it to the bedroom, they saw a big brass gong next to the bed.

"What's a big brass gong doing in your bedroom?" one of the guests asked.

"It's not a gong. It's a talking clock," the drunk replied.

"A talking clock? Seriously?" asked his astonished friend.

"Yup," replied the drunk.

"How's it work?" the friend asked, squinting at it.
"Watch," the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave the gong an
ear-shattering whack, and stepped back.

The three stood looking at one another for a moment.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed,
"You stop that, it's ten past three in the morning!" .....
