Friday Funnies #47 Difference Between Men Women & More

Man, two weeks into the new year and things are already starting to pop. I’ve finished testing a plugin I bought late last year and I’ve just purchased another one this week. Each could help me to maximise this blog and I highly recommend you join my list so that you don’t miss out. It’s so easy, just click on the sign up image at the end of the post.

But we’ll get to that later because today it’s all about making you laugh. After all, that is what Friday Funnies is all about isn’t it? Especially after you’ve had a crappy week at work. This first one is all about a teachers experience while teaching her young class about an interesting fact during a biology class.

A Teachers Story ABout Stuttering

A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students. “Human beings are the only animals that stutter,’ she says 

A little girl raises her hand. ‘I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.’

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked the girl to describe the incident.

“Well,” she began, ‘I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!’

‘That must’ve been scary,’ said the teacher.

‘It sure was,’ said the little girl. My kitty raised her back, went “Ffffff!, Ffffff!, FfffffF,”

Teaching People The Proper Way To Comment

Most people probably don’t realize this but there was a time when I was studying to be a teacher and I only had a semester to complete to get my degree before I gave it all away. There were many reasons for this but the main reason was I discovered near the end that I didn’t have a passion for it and so I decided I would be doing all those kids a disservice were I to continue on.

Now seeing as how I have all that experience I wondered if I could use it to teach people the proper way to comment on a blog. I know there are a whole lot of posts out there that have tried to educate people the proper way to leave a comment, I even wrote one myself called Commenting 101 Important Rules For 2009, yet even with this wealth of information I find there’s a lot of people out there who just don’t get it.

Perhaps they think they understand the proper technique but for some reason they’ve missed some vital point, and so they continue to leave comments that can be so bad some people interpret it as spam and send them to Akismet Hell.

I’m hoping this post will solve that problem and the way I’m hoping to do that is by grading every comment out of 10. That means that I will allow all comments, even the spam ones, and with each grade I will give a reason as to why they got that score.

A warning though, even though I will leave comments that I would normally delete or spam I will remove the url. So, what are some of the things that will cause points to be deducted?

  1. Comments that do not follow the Comment Policy!
  2. Poor grammar, which includes being too slack to use capitals and punctuation. I will make special consideration for those to whom English is a second language.
  3. If I feel your comment has nothing to do with the post, by which I mean you probably didn’t read it.
  4. If I feel you didn’t put any effort or thought into your comment.
  5. All spam comments will obviously receive a score of ZERO

OK, I may add to that list if anything else comes to mind. I reckon it will be very interesting to see what sort of comments this post will solicit. Be warned that I will not hold back because I’m not one who believes being soft on students is a good tactic, and certainly doesn’t teach them anything. :devil_tb:

You may want to tweet this post so it will get maximum exposure.
