ROFL . . .

I should have been packing all afternoon - having skived off work for that exact purpose - but I've been feeling kinda dozy so instead I've been sitting at the computer reading funny teaching stories and education jokes. This one I just *had* to share:

Then Jesus took his disciples up the mountain and gathered them around him. He taught them saying:

are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are the meek.
Blessed are they that mourn.
Blessed are the merciful.
Blessed are they that thirst for justice.
Blessed are you when you are persecuted.
Blessed are you when you when you suffer.
Be glad and rejoice for your reward is great in heaven."

And James said "are we supposed to know this ?"
And Simon Peter said "will we have a test on this ?"
And Phillip said "I don't have any paper."
And Bartholomew said "do we have to spell correctly ?"
And Mark said "do we have to hand this in ?"
And John said "the other disciples didn't have to learn this."
And Matthew said "may I go to the toilet ?"

Then one of the Pharisees who was present asked to see
Jesus' lesson plan and inquired of Jesus:
"Where are your learning and assessment objectives ?
What range of teaching strategies did you draw from ?
Did you provide a differentiated provision ?
Can I see a cross section of pupils work ?

And Jesus wept.

Found here:

I'm sure the teachers / TAs / Ed students will appreciate why this tickled my fancy!

The jokes on that site are religion-oriented not teaching oriented, but do peruse it, some of them are delightful.
