Fridays Funnies #3 Larry Griswold And A Teachers Woes

G’day peeps, man that week went quickly didn’t it. Even though I have to work tomorrow I still love Fridays because I know I only have one more day to go, oh, and I get to share a bit more humor with you :tongue_laugh_ee:

I found this next joke to be quite funny and even though I haven’t seen it before I suspect that someone has manipulated the last line to reflect what they thought us poor Aussies were in for when Julia Gillard became Australia’s Prime Minister, after virtually knifing Kevin Rudd in the back. I say that because it obviously takes place in an American classroom and so that last line probably referred to something that happened in the States.

The Little Smart Foreign Exchange Student

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American history.

Who said ‘Give me Liberty, or give me Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Hodiaki  a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand up: ‘Patrick Henry, 1775’, he said.

‘Very good!’

Who said, ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?’

Again, no response except from Little Hodiaki, ‘Abraham Lincoln, 1863’.

‘Excellent!’, said the teacher continuing, ‘let’s try one a bit more difficult…’

Who said, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?’

Once again, Hodiaki’s was the only hand in the air and he said:

‘John F. Kennedy, 1961’.

The teacher snapped at the class, ‘Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves, Little Hodiaki isn’t from this country and he knows more about our history than you do.’

She heard a loud whisper:  ‘F . . k the Japs,’

‘Who said that? I want to know right now!’ she angrily demanded.

Little Hodiaki put his hand up, ‘General MacArthur, 1945.’

At that point, a student in the back said, ‘I’m gonna puke.’

The teacher glared around and asks,  ‘All right! Now who said that!?’

Again, Little Hodiaki said, ‘George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.’

Now furious, another student yelled, ‘Oh yeah? Suck this!’

Little Hodiaki jumped out of his chair waving his hand and shouted to the teacher, ‘Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!’

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, ‘You little shit. If you say anything else, I’ll kill you.’

Little Hodiaki frantically yelled at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the child witness testifying against him, 2004.’

The teacher fainted.

As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, ‘Oh shit, We’re screwed!’

Little Hodiaki said quietly, ‘The Australian people, 2011.’ :lol_tb:

Oh well, I liked it :wink_ee: I’ve just put this joke on YouTube. I called it Hodiaki The Smart Foreign Exchange Student.

And now for a little video. I loved this one and hope that you will also. It’s, as they say, an oldie but a goodie. It was filmed way back in 1951on the Frank Sinatra Show and depicts Larry Griswold.

Larry Griswold And The High Dive Act

Now you have to admit that was pretty entertaining, even in our day of special effects.

    1. Yeah, that was an amazing video. Makes you wonder why the guy lied like that doesn’t it?

      Glad you liked the jokes Larry.

  1. Good one! I can actually imagine something like that happening.

    Thanks again for the laughs and have a nice weekend!

    1. Glad you liked it Lily and you have a great weekend too.

    1. No you didn’t Tony, at least not until now :wink: I’m glad you like them. Now all you have to do is tweet one or two :wink_ee:

  2. Hey Sire,

    Well I really enjoyed the insider’s joke (the one with the transit officer LOL) and these jokes were really cool too.

    I must say I did got scared a few times from watching the trampoline video but it was VERY entertaining to watch, that guy surely had a lot of talent.

    Speak soon and keep them coming mate!


    PS. I do like your jokes mate haha so just care about the people that do have a sense of humour! ;-)

    1. Hey Sergio,

      I’m enjoying these posts and I’m glad you guys are enjoying them as well so I reckon I’ll make them a regular thing.

      Thanks for the Tweet too Sergio :drunk_tb:

  3. Sire, you’re hilarious! I read the funny via email (which I actually think was better than this and your non-email subscribers are missing out) and had to get over to read this one too! Oh yes, this is one way to ensure your readers have a sense of humor!

    1. Hey Kimberley,

      every now and again I do try to give my subscribers that little extra because I you guys really deserve it :clap:

      Glad you made it here and liked the jokes enough tog give it a tweet. Thanks so much for that :thumbup_ee:

  4. Amusing joke, but I admit the changed punchline goes over my head since I’m not Australian. Out of curiosity I looked up the original version of this joke. Apparently the original one ends when the teacher faints. So the MJ line was the original punch line. Interesting how an existing joke can be modified to reflect circumstances in a different country.

    1. Only amusing Jeremy? :tongue_laugh_ee:

      It is interesting the way people make the joke country specific just by changing a few things around. Glad you like it Jeremy.

  5. That was a great little story. No wonder the kids got peed off with a little foreign kid who knew more than they did. I enjoyed the video too. Comedians needed real athletic skills in the old day Sire. Keep the concept going each week.

    1. I intend to Peter, especially considering how you guys seem to enjoy the posts.

  6. That was one funny video there Sire. You just got me searching youtube for more Larry Griswold antics. And I also learned that he was actually a co-inventor of the trampoline (with George Nissen) back in 1934-35.

    And I haven’t been really reading on international issues, so I think I’ll soon have to google on why Australia got screwed in 2011. :)

    1. Hey James, we got screwed when Julia Gillard became the PM of Australia. :doh_tb:

  7. That really is funny. Americans are often so proud of their freedoms, but so ignorant about how they got them.

    1. I reckon that applies to a lot of different nationalities Jeff

  8. Hey great funny friday this week that joke is epic made me laugh anyway so job well done keep them coming.

    1. I’ll keep them coming, that’s one thing you’ll be able to rely on Ryan

  9. I love watching classical movies and this one is very entertaining. He was known as “The Diving Fool”. I love gymnast but sad to say that I can’t do it. I don’t have guts to do it. I thought he already broke his bone in the first fall. Very entertaining and I love watching it.

    1. Don’t feel bad Farrell, I can’t do it either :tongue_laugh_ee:

  10. Ok, so I didn’t get this until after the weekend but it was a good start to my Monday…and heaven knows I need it today. Thanks

    1. Can’t see why you can’t drop in on Mondays instead of Fridays Jim and have a great start to the week. :thumbup_tb:

  11. Lovin’ these Friday funnies, but the sad thing is that kids today really don’t know hardly any history or geography… my friend just told me that she thought Scandinavia was a country! can you believe that?
    Claire recently posted…The Secret Survey Review – My OpinionMy Profile

    1. So glad you’re enjoying the series Claire and yes I can believe that :laugh_tb:

  12. That last line could have 100 different responses, depending on where and when it’s told. Hilarious though, and the first time I heard it.

    1. That is so true Michael and I’m sure there probably are that many, if not more, different variations.

  13. “oh shit we are screwed”- half the people who believe in 2012 apocalypse said it at the birth of new year 2012.

    1. And I reckon they will all be proved to be wrong John

  14. Yea, I didn’t get the Australia reference, but the Japs bit made me lol. Could have left it there for me.

    1. At least something made you laugh :wink_ee:

  15. Larry Grisworld is amazing; always has been, always will be. I’m really enjoying these Fridays Funnies; lost the best part of an hour tracking back through them all so far. I’m sure I was supposed to be doing something else. :P

    1. Hey Stefan, in case you’re wondering why your comments aren’t appearing it’s because I had to fish them all out of the spam folder. So glad you’re enjoying the Friday Funnies Series.
