to take our minds off the election ! by irishmanufan on 5 November 2004 9:54pm
 
no ofence meant to any and all americans who might hapen to read this . diamond was kind enough to send this and i nearly fell off my chair laughing :0)

At Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport today, an individual, later discovered to
be a public school
teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a
ruler, a protractor, a set
square, a slide rule, and a calculator. At a morning press conference,
Attorney General John
Ashcroft said he believes the man is a member of the notorious al-gebra
movement. He is
being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult," Ashcroft said. "They desire average
solutions by means and
extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute
value. They use secret
code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but
we have determined they
belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates
in every
country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'there are 3
sides to every triangle'.

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had
wanted us to have
better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers
and toes."

No offense, Irishmanufan, but that does NOT take my mind off the election. But it's still cute.
