HAPPY FRIDAY: What drives teachers to drink

IF you’ve ever taught kids before, you or your fellow teachers are likely to have come across something like this before. Some of these test answers indicate artistic minds at work or supreme logical thinking. There’s never a dull moment in the classroom, but many teachers use results like these as their excuse to drink. Enjoy!

HAPPY FRIDAY: Vertaan jy rugby? Do you understand rugby?

WE’RE going to have to explain some of these to our non-South African friends. When the Rugby World Cup comes around many struggle to get to grips with how the game of rugby works. It’s a strange and spiritual sport that may need some explaining.

ABC: The new alphabet for kids in the digital age

Learning the alphabet was fun. Singing the alphabet song has got to be one of the highlights of early life. When we started school many years ago, we had to learn the ABC. Kids still do, but the only thing that stayed the same is that A still stands for Apple!

The Banana Test and the Broke Old Lady

SOMETHING SILLY: Banana Test & the Broke Old Lady

WHEN I SAY I’M BROKE – I’M BROKE!

A little old lady answered a knock at the door one day to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

“Good morning”, said the young man. “If I could take a couple minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.”

“Go away!” piped the old lady. “I’m broke and haven’t got any money!” and she proceeded to close the door.

Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open. “Don’t be too hasty!” said he. “Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.” And with that he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto her hallway carpet.

“Now, if this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.”

The old lady stepped back and said, “Well let me get you a fork, ’cause they cut off my electricity this morning.”

THE BANANA TEST

There was a very, very tall coconut tree and four animals, a lion, a chimpanzee, a giraffe, and a squirrel, who pass by. They decide to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree. Who do you guess will win? Your answer will reflect your personality. So think carefully. Try and get it within 30 seconds.

Got your answer? Now scroll down to see the analysis.

If your answer is:

  • Lion = you’re dull.
  • Chimpanzee = you are a moron.
  • Giraffe = you’re a complete idiot.
  • Squirrel = you are just hopelessly stupid.

A coconut tree doesn’t have bananas!

Obviously you’re stressed and overworked. You should take some time off and relax, banana brain. Try again next year.

Happy Friday !

IRONY: An illustration

IRONY:- “The use of words to convey the opposite of their literal meaning; a statement or situation where the meaning is contradicted by the appearance or presentation of the idea. Three kinds of irony are commonly recognised. Verbal irony: a trope in which the intended meaning of a statement differs from the meaning that the words appear to express. Situational irony: an incongruity between what is expected or intended and what actually occurs. Dramatic irony: an effect produced by a narrative in which the audience knows more about present or future circumstances than a character in the story”.
