Did you know that high school boys get really hungry just before lunch? Even if lunch is served at 10:53 a.m.? I am well aware of that fact. Every year I hear about how they are starving. About how lunch smells SO good! It doesn't help that my room is right across the hall from the kitchen. Kids can't concentrate on anything else if they're hungry.
We were down to the last few minutes before the bell, debating on whether Chicken Noodle Soup is the same as Chicken and Noodles. One is a lunch menu staple every couple of weeks. Our cooks have never served the other one. I insisted that they are two different entrees, while a student swore that they are one and the same. A clever negotiator proposed that they are made out of the same thing, except that the Chicken and Noodles is made with egg noodles, while the soup is not. We agreed to disagree.
During the next two minutes, we told beef and pork jokes. That's because one student complained that the math assignment was a puzzle. Problems had to be answered correctly so a number would match a corresponding letter, leading to the answer of a riddle at the bottom of the page. Here's the original riddle, along with some jokes that resulted. Answers will follow.
1. "What did the cops put on a bad pig?"
2. "What do you call a cow with two legs?"
3. "What do you call a cow with no legs?"
4. "What does a pig put on his burn?"
2. lean beef
3. ground beef
Don't hate me because I am working your dream job. Hate me because I am a connoisseur of fine beef and pork jokes.
