Jokes - It Is Graduation Day


05/30/2007

It was graduation day and Mom was trying to take a picture of their son in a cap and gown, posed with his father.
"Let's try to make this look natural "she said. "Junior, put your arm around your dad's shoulder."
The father answered, "If you want it to look natural, why not have him put his hand in my pocket?"


You know our education system has problems when Hallmark comes out with a new line of "Easy-to-read" graduation cards.



It's graduation day, and everybody's going to get their diploma but Jon. At the assembly, the entire senior class stands up and shouts 'Let Jon graduate, let Jon graduate!'

The principal agrees to give Jon one last chance. 'If I have five apples in my right hand and five in my left hand, Jon, how many apples do I have?' he asked.

Jon thought long and hard and then said: 'Ten.'
And the entire senior class stood up and shouted 'Give Jon another chance. Give Jon another chance!'



After Graduating from High School, a boy moves away from home to study at University. One of his letters home reads:
Dear Father,
University i$ really great. I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard. With all my $tuff, I $imply ¢an't think of anything I need, $o if you would like, you can ju$t $end me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you.
Love,
Your $on.

After receiving his son's letter, the father immediately replies by sending a letter back.

Dear Son,
I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics, and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep even an hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task, and you can never study eNOugh.
Love,
Dad


Isabel Waxman
It is indeed ironic that we spend our school days yearning to graduate and our remaining days waxing nostalgic about our school days.

Theodore Roosevelt
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

Robert Orben
A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that 'individuality' is the key to success.

Garry Trudeau
Commencement speeches were invented largely in the belief that outgoing college students should never be released into the world until they have been properly sedated.

Bill Cosby
People will frighten you about a graduation. They use words you don't hear often. 'And we wish you Godspeed.' It is a warning, Godspeed. It means you are no longer welcome here at these prices.
