1、The New Teacher
George comes from school on the first of September.
George, how did you like your new teacher? Asked his mother.
I didn't like her, Mother, because she said that three and three were six and then she said that two and four were six too.
2、The Fish Net
Can you tell me what the fish net is made of, Ann?
A lot of little holes tied together with strings. Replied the little girl.
3、A man wrote a letter to a small hotel he planned to visit on his vacation: "I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?"
An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who said, "I've been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls. I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you're welcome to stay here, too."
愚人节 April Fool's Day 愚人节的由来
1582年，法国国王查理九世决定采用新改革的纪年法——格里高利历(即通用的阳历)，以元旦为一 对这种改革，依然按照旧的历法在这天送新年礼，庆祝新年。主张改革的人把守旧派这些做法大加嘲弄，给他们送假礼物，邀请他们参加假的聚会。从此，在这天捉弄人便流传开来。当人上当受骗的时候，捉弄他的人会大声叫：“四月之愚”(“POISSON D'AVRIL”)，意为“四月恶作剧”。
