There was this boy who had this babe of a teacher. She was
hooked on candybars. The boy really wanted to see this chick

When she was about to go home, he said to her, can I go home
with you. “No,” the teacher replied. He then said, “I’ll give
you a candybar.” So she agreed.

When she was about to get into the shower, he asked her, “Can I
get in with you?” And again the teacher said no, and again the
boy said, “I’ll give you a candybar.” And she said yes.

Then when she was about to get into bed, he asked, “Can I sleep
with you?” Again the teacher refused, the boy again said, “I’ll
give you a candybar.” And again she said yes.

Well the boy asked if he could touch her belly button, she said,
no and he said, “I’ll give you a candybar.”

Suddenly the teacher said, “Hey that ain’t my belly button!” The
boy replied, “That ain’t my finger!”

Singing University of Michigan Fight Song

An Ohio State University mortician student walked into the
embalming room where a cadaver was lying on the table. Confident
that he knew enough now to begin the procedure without his
instructor, he began to examine the body. When he rolled it
over, he was shocked to see a cork in the man’s butt. Mystified,
he pulled it out and immediately heard the University of
Michigan fight song come out of the guy’s butt.

Shaken by what had happened, he quickly shoved the cork back
into it’s original resting place. He then ran to get his
instructor, nervously shouting, “Sir, you must come, you won’t
believe what I discovered!!”

Annoyed by the interruption, the professor said, “Let’s take a
look at this astounding discovery.”

When they entered the morgue, the teacher was also surprised to
see the cork, so he approached the table and promptly removed
the cork.

Upon hearing the University of Michigan fight song, he quickly
replaced the cork in the cadaver’s butt and said, “What’s so
surprising about that? I’ve heard thousands of assholes sing
that song!”

Lil’ Johnny vs. Bus Driver

One day Little Johnny was on the school bus and he was sitting
right behind the bus driver and he was saying to himself, “If my
daddy was a lion and my mommy was a lion then I would be a baby
lion.” He kept on talking to himself like this.

After 10 minutes of this, the bus driver had enough of it and
said, “What would happen if your daddy was a drunk and your
mommy was a whore?” Little Johnny replied, “Then I would be a
bus driver.”

Purple Blurple

One day while Jonny was in class, his friend dared him to ask
what a purple blurple is. So Jonny raised his hand and the
teacher called on him, cuz everyone knows Jonny. Jonny asked,
“Whats a purple blurple?”

“Jonny! How dare you ask such a horrible question! I’m taking
you to the principal’s office!” The teacher screamed. So she
took Jonny to the principal’s office and threw him on the
waiting couch. When it was Jonny’s turn, the principal said,
“Come in Jonny, did your teacher have you come down to give me
some thing or tell me something?” Cuz everyone knows Jonny.
Jonny steeped in and said, “Well, all I did was ask the teacher
what a purple blurple is…” “Jonny! Take your things and
leave school, never come back!” the principal raged. So Jonny
left school and went home to his house. He knocked on the door
and his mother answered.

“Why hi Jonny, whats up? Why are you home early?”His mother
asked. “Well, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office and
the principal sent me home!”Jonny explained. “Why…did that
happen?”His mother asked. “Cuz all I did was ask what a purple
blurple is!”

“Jonny! Go up to your room and have your father deal with you
once he gets home!”She yelled. So Jonny went up to his room and
waited for three hours when he heard a knock. “Come in,” Jonny
said. Jonny’s father entered and said, “Jonny why is your
mother so upset?” Jonny replied, “Well, my teacher sent me up
to the principal’s office, who sent me home, then mom sent me up
to my room and that’s it!” “Why did all this happen?” Jonny’s
father asked. “Cuz I asked what a purple blurple is.”

“Jonny! Pack your bags! I want you out of this house in ten
minutes!!” His father screamed. So Jonny packed what was
important and that he could carry and walked out the door. He
was walking down the street when Bob the cab driver came. “Hi
Jonny!” Cuz everyone knows Jonny. “What’s with all the luggage?
Why don’t I give you a ride and you can explain.” So Jonny
Climbed into the cab and started, “My teacher sent me to the
principal’s office…the airport please…and the principal sent
me home and my mom sent me to my room and my dad threw me out of
the house!” “And why did that happen? What did you do?” Bob
asked. “All I did was ask what a purple blurple was.” he

“Jonny! Get out of this cab!” Bob yelled as he slammed onthe
breaks. Jonny got out of the cab and took his luggage. By this
time Jonny was only 100 feet away from the airport so he walked
the rest of the way. He had no money so he slid in a corner and
slept there.

A flight attendant found him in the morning, “Hi Jonny!” Cuz
everyone knows Jonny. “Why are you in a corner in the airport.”
“It’s a realy long story, I was kicked out of my house.” Jonny
summarised. “Ohhh, that’s horrible, how about we give you a
free trip to anywhere.” So, Jonny went on a jet to anywhere and
everywhere. The pilot greeted him, “Hi Jonny!” Cuz everyone
knows Jonny. “What brings you here?” Jonny explained all that
had happened. “Why?” Is all the pilot had to ask. “All I did
was ask what a purple blurple was!” The pilot got a parachute
on Jonny and threw him out the door. Jonny landed next to the
president of Amierica.

“Hi Jonny!” Cuz everyone knows Jonny. “What brings you to
Rome?” Jonny explained what happened.”…And then the pilot
threw me out the window!” “Well, that’s quite an interesting
story. Why did, ah, that happen?” the president asked. “Well,
all I asked was what a purple blurple is!”

“Jonny! What an inappropriate question! You need to go talk to
the Pope!!” So, the president takes Jonny over to the Pope.
“Hi Jonny!” Cuz everyone knows Jonny. “Tell me your story.”
Jonny explained everything to the Pope. “But, why, my son?” “I
asked what a purple Blurple is.”

“Jonny! I need you to go talk to my councelor, he overheard
everything, just go talk with him.” So, Jonny stepped over to
the councelor. “Hi Jonny!” Cuz everyone knows Jonny. “I know
your story, let’s cross the street and get some ice cream and
talk this over.” So the councelor walked across the street and
motioned Jonny to do so. Jony was hit by a car.
