'The General shouted at the troops before letting down the regiment'.

There were others but I can't remember off hand.

I really shouldn't try to drink coffee while reading this kind of stuff! It's a miracle my monitor and keyboard survived!

Those are hysterical! I've actually seen quite a few of them, but each time they come around, they have multiplied. Some great additions this time.

Ah ok, thanks Fran. We don't have that test in Florida. From the description on the site you gave it would seem that our equivelant is the FCAT, which needs some serious tweaking if you ask me. That test is BEYOND difficult!!!

Funny answers though, I'm sure many have been added by people thinking they're clever over the years.
