  3. A father who is very much concerned about his son’s bad grades in math decides to register him at a catholic school. After his first term there, the son brings home his report card: He’s getting an A in math.

    The father is, of course, pleased, but wants to know: “Why is your math grade suddenly so good?”

    The son explained, “when I walked into the classroom the first day, and I saw that guy on the wall nailed to a plus sign, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t that guy.”

  4. Neodymium glass will actually look two different colors depending on the ligting–red under incandescent and blue under fluorescent.

    Sort of like how some RINOs look red on the daylit campaign trail and blue under the lights of the congressional chamber.
