    The Third Grade Test:

    A FIRST GRADE TEACHER was having trouble with one
    of her students.
    The teacher asked, "Johnny what is your problem?"
    Johnny answered, "I'm too smart for the first
    grade. My sister is in the third grade and I'm
    smarter than she is! I think I should be in
    the third grade too!"

    The teacher had had enough. She took Johnny to
    the principal's office.

    While Johnny waited in the outer office, the
    teacher explained to the principal what the situation
    was. The principal told the teacher he would give the
    boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his
    questions he was to go back to the first grade and
    behave. The teacher agreed.

    Johnny was brought in and the conditions are
    explained to him and he agrees to take the test.

    Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"
    Johnny: "9."

    Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"
    Johnny: "36."

    And so it went with every question the principal
    thought a third grader should know.

    The principal looks at the teacher and tells her,
    "I think Johnny can go to the third grade."

    The teacher says to the principal, "Let me ask
    him some questions". The principal and Johnny both agree.

    The teacher asks, "What does a cow have four of
    that I have only two of?"
    Johnny, after a moment, "Legs."

    Teacher: "What is in your pants that you have but
    I do not have?"
    The principal's eyes open really wide and before
    he could stop the answer, Johnny replied, "Pockets."

    Teacher: "What does a dog do that a man steps
    Johnny: "Pants."

    Teacher: "What word starts with an 'F' and ends
    in 'K' that means a lot of excitement?"
    Johnny: "Firetruck."

    Teacher: "What does a man stand up to do, a woman
    sits down to do, and a dog stand on three legs to do?"
    Johnny: "Shake hands."

    The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told
    the teacher, "Put Johnny in the fifth grade,
    I missed the last five questions myself !!!!!
