The #2 pencil…

Standard

The value of a Catholic education and a #2 pencil (this is too cute) …. You don’t even have to be Catholic to appreciate this one.

Little Mary Margaret was not the best student in Catholic School. Usually she slept through the class.

One day her teacher, Sister Mary Michael, called on her wh ile she was sleeping. ‘Tell me Mary Margaret, who created the universe?’

When Mary Margaret didn’t stir, little Johnny who was her friend sitting behind her, took his pencil and jabbed her in the rear.

‘God Almighty!’ shouted Mary Margaret.

Sister Mary Michael said, ‘Very good’ and continued teaching her class.

A little later Sister Mary Michael asked Mary Margaret, ‘Who is our Lord and Savior?’

But Mary didn’t stir from her slumber Once again, Johnny came to her rescue and stuck Mary Margaret in the butt.

‘Jesus Christ!!!’ shouted Mary Margaret and Sister Mary Michael once again said,’Very good,’ and Mary Margaret fell back asleep.

Sister Mary Michael asked her a third question…’What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?’

Again, Johnny came to the rescue.

This time Mary Margaret jumped up and shouted, ‘If you stick that thing in me one more time, I’ll break it in half!’

Sister Mary Michael fainted.
