Joke of the Month

Graduation Day

It's graduation day, and everybody's going to get their diploma but Josh. At the assembly, the entire senior class stands up and shouts "Let Josh graduate, let Josh graduate!"

The principal agrees to give Josh one last chance. "If I have five apples in my right hand and five in my left hand, Josh, how many apples do I have?" he asked.

Josh thought long and hard and then said: "Ten."

And the entire senior class stood up and shouted, "Give Josh another chance. Give Josh another chance!"
