Zachary in School

  1. little zachary was doing very badly in math. his
    parents had tried everything: tutors, mentors, flash
    cards, special learning centers, in short, everything
    they could think of to help his math.
    finally, in a last ditch effort, they took zachary
    down and enrolled him in the local catholic school.

    after the first day, little zachary came home with a
    very serious look on his face. he didn't even kiss
    his mother hello. instead, he went straight to his
    room and started studying. books and papers were
    spread out all over the room and little zachary was
    hard at work.

    his mother was amazed. she called him down to dinner,
    to her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back
    to his room without a word. in no time he was back
    hitting the books as hard as before.
    this went on for some time, day after day, while his
    mother tried to understand what made all the

    finally, little zachary brought home his report card.
    he quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room,
    and hit the books. with great trepidation his mom
    looked at it, and to her great surprise little
    zachary got an "a" in math.

    she could no longer hold her curiosity. she went to
    his room and said: " son, what was it? was it the
    nuns?" little zachary looked at her and shook his
    head no. "well then, " she replied, "was it the
    books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms?
    what was it?"

    little zachary looked at her and said, "well, on the
    first day of school, when i saw that guy nailed to the
    plus sign, i knew they weren't messing around."
