Boy Tells Teacher He’s Too Smart For The First Grade. What Follows Is Absolutely Priceless


A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students. Out of frustration one day, she asked Johnny what his problem was to which Johnny promptly replied, “I’m too smart for the first grade, my sister is in the third grade and I’m smarter than her too.”

Stunned and unable to decide on how to handle the situation, she took Johnny to the principal. She decided that she would question Johnny about everything a third grader should know and very rightly, if he can answer correctly, he would be promoted. This is how the principal’s session went:

Principal: “What is 3 x 3?”
Johnny: “9.”

Principal: “6 x 6?”
Johnny: “36.”

After an hour of quizzing Johnny, the principal told the teacher, “I see no reason why Johnny can’t go to the third grade, he answered all of my questions right.”

Still unconvinced, Johnny’s teacher asked the principal if she could also question Johnny before the final decision is made. The principal told her to go right ahead and clear her doubts about Johnny’s promotion. This is how the teacher’s session went:

Teacher: “What does a cow have 4 of that I only have 2 of?”
Johnny: “Legs”

Teacher: “What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?”
The principal gasped in horror but before he can stop the boy from answering, Johnny answered: “Pockets.”

Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”
Johnny: “Pants.”

Teacher: “What starts with F and ends with K and means a lot of excitement?”
Johnny: “Fire truck.”

After the question answer session was over, the principal breathed a huge sigh of relief and said, “Put Johnny in the fifth grade, I got the last 4 questions wrong myself.”
