Ya Gotta Know Your History


             The Indian Boy

              Just in case you haven’t already done so, be sure to read “Intro to the Funny Bone Zone” in the “Boolmer Angst” category. Just so you know what this funny little section is all about.

It was the first day of school and a new student named Chandrashekhar

Subrahmanyam entered the fourth grade.

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 Chandrashekhar, 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 Chandrashekhar.


“Abraham Lincoln, 1863,” said Chandrashekhar.


The teacher snapped at the class, “Class, you should be ashamed. Chandrashekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do.”


She heard a loud whisper: “F**k the Indians.”

“Who said that?” she demanded.


Chandrashekhar put his hand up. “General Custer, 1862.”


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


The teacher glares around and asks “All right! Now, who said that?”


Again, Chandrashekhar says, “George Bush to the Japanese Prime

Minister, 1991.”


Now furious, another student yells, “Oh yeah? S*ck this!”


Chandrashekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts

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.”

Chandrashekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice, “Gary Condit

to Chandra Levy, 2001.”


The teacher fainted. And as the class gathered around the teacher

on the floor, someone said, “Oh shit, we’re f**ked!” And Chandrashekhar said quietly, “George Bush, Iraq, 2005.”

  1. You think that more socialism is going to help Detroit?

    Talk about digging in deeper.

  2. More socialism…? Not quite sure I’m following you, likwidshoe. Give me a bit more to go on and hopefully I can put together a better response. I’m all for digging in deeper, but you gotta give me something to dig with.

    Thanks for stopping by, and hope to hear from you again soon.
