The Saddest Teacher Joke In The World
Created | Updated Jan 28, 2002
Believed to be in the public domain and passed to me by my teacher friend, Julian Capp.
Then Jesus took his disciples up the mountain and gathering them around him, he taught them, saying:
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
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 suffer.
Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is great in Heaven."
Then Simon Peter said, "Are we supposed to know this?"
And Andrew said, "Do we have to write this down?"
And James said, "Will we have a test on this?"
And Philip said, "Does this count?"
And Bartholomew said, "Do we have to hand this in?"
And John said, "The other disciples didn't have to do this!"
And Matthew said, "Can I go to the toilet?"
And Judas said, "What does this have to do with real life?"
Then one of the Pharisees who was present asked to see Jesus' Lesson Plan and enquired of Jesus,
"Where is your anticipatory set and where are your objectives in the cognitive domain?"
And Jesus wept.
