Seventeenth Chapter

A Sunday school teacher was giving her class the assignment for the next week.

"Next Sunday," she said, "we are going to talk about liars, and in preparation for our lesson I want you all to read the Seventeenth Chapter of Mark."

The following week, at the beginning of the class meeting, the teacher said, "Now then, all of you who have prepared for the lesson by reading the Seventeenth Chapter of Mark, please step to the front of the room."

About half the class rose and came forward.

"The rest of you may leave," said the teacher, "these students are the ones I want to talk to, seeing there is no Seventeenth Chapter in the Book of Mark."

  20. Reminds me of a college professor I had. Right before the exam, he told us all to read the entire exam through before we start answering questions. Naturally, everyone started writing answers immediately. Everyone but me. When I had read all the questions, I got to the last one that said something like, "Now that you have read through this exam, put your name on the front of the exam, and turn in this paper. Do NOT answer any questions. Complying with these instructions will earn you an A; failure to do so will be an automatic F."

    Wonder who else got the A? *smile*

  23. That's a good teacher. Must've been really embarrassing.

    @Desert Songbird: Really? I'm going to read my exam papers now really carefully till the end before I start answering. I'm used to go through exams first to find the easiest questions to answer first, but that's a good new reason to read it more carefully.

  25. That´s what I learned early in school: You cannot really trust those teachers!

  26. Oh, that was genius!
    But that serves the students right. Do they seriously think that they are the only ones who are good at lying?? :D
