ABC Wednesday, I for Interesting facts about history

Thank you Denise Nesbitt for creating ABC. We must thank Roger too for the weekly job to find  ten bloggers for each of the ABC Team members  to visit and to read their posts. This will be now the letter  I.

Some years ago I got this from one of my students, who got it from a friend of his.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following were answers provided by 6th graders during a history test. Watch the spelling! Some of the funniest answers are those that are misspelled...



1. Ancient Egypt was inhabited by mummies and they all wrote in hydraulics.They lived in the Sarah Dessert. The climate of the Sarah is such that all the inhabitants have to live elswhere.







2. Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without ingredients. Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the Ten Commandments. He died before he ever reached Canada.


3. Solomon had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines.

 

4. The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we wouldn't have history. The Greek also had myths. A myth is a female moth.

 

5.Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. After his death his career suffered a dramatic decline.

 

6. In the Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled biscuits, and threw the java.



7. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be king. Dying, he gasped out "Tee hee, Brutus."

 

8. Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was canonized by Bernard Shaw.

 

9.Queen Elizabeth was the "Virgin Queen". As a queen she was a success . When she exposed herself before her troops they all shouted, "Hurrah!"

Oh my goodness, Wil....stop or I'll end up choking! SO SO funny! I think I'll print this out and have my grandson (who is entering grade 6 tomorrow) see if he can figure out why this is so funny. It'll be a challenge for him. Have a great week.

Wil, this is so funny I am going to share the link with friends. The climate of Sarah will, of course, be contested by my friend Sarah! So sad, in a way, that these were sixth graders, because WOW! The answers are incredibly lame... Thanks again! Amy

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh those 700 porcupines were probably way too much for that poor King ;>))). I love this kind of wordplay humor. Very cute post.

uberrhund said...

I think Porcupines might be a very apt translation for where they were going with that one!~
Fine entertainment, thanks.

Ann said...

So cute, love #2.
