# Joke time (Fall 2006)

Each semester, I offer students a last chance for extra credit by writing their favorite joke or riddle on their crib sheet, with extra credit assigned based purely on how funny I think it is. This semester’s pickings were a little scarce, with most of these jokes being repeated at least once. In fact, the single joke I got the most often was

Q: Why is 6 afraid of 7?
A: Because 7 8 9.

A young mother gave birth to twin boys, but being poor she had to give them up for adoption. One boy went to a family in Egypt, where they named him Ahmul.

When the picture arrived, the mother was at first ecstatic, but then suddenly started to cry. When her husband asked what was wrong, she said, “Oh, I wish a had a picture of our other son too!” The husband smiled and replied, “Honey, they’re twins. If you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Ahmul.”

The redhead stood before the mirror and said, “I think… that I’m the smartest girl here.” Poof! A sack of gold appeared. The blonde stood before the mirror and said, “I think…” Poof! She disappeared.
