I am a high school history teacher in Sonoma, California. Today I was teaching the students about the Ancient Israelites. I had them do a warmup by writing all they knew about Judaism in a paragraph. One kid wrote nothing. I came over and asked her the easy question, "Well, do you know where the Hebrews lived?" as a way to get an answer out of her. She replied very seriously, "Aren't they from Switzerland?"
. I have to teach these kids for the rest of the school year.
This overweight chocolate lab came into the doggy daycare place I work at today. It turns out this lab had eaten the owner's wallet earlier in the day and wanted to let him know if we could recover anything. Sure enough, the dog threw up several unidentifiable items along with a 5 dollar bill that had been ripped into at least 10 different pieces. This guy I work with picked through the vomit and managed to find and tape all the pieces together. He said it was worth it.

My friend was telling me a story about this mom and her kids at the mall he works at. Apparently the kids were playing on one of those rides that just move around, while ignoring their mothers orders to get off so they could leave. This is when she said "Last one to the car is gay" and both kids immediately sprinted off the ride and to the car.
