One night, three University students stayed out late, partying and having the time of their lives. They could not be bothered about the I.A they had scheduled for the next day and didn’t study. In the morning, they hatched a plan to get out of taking their test and resting. They covered themselves with grease and dirt and went to the H.O.D’s office on Monday morning. Once there, they said they had been to a funeral on Saturday and on their way back the previous day they got a flat tire and had to push the car back to campus as there were no mechanics and they could not leave the car.
The H.O.D listened to their tale of woe and felt sorry for the young men. He offered them a retest three days later. They thanked him, accepted the offer and went to bed.
When the day of the test arrived, they went to the H.O.D. The three were put in separate rooms for the I.A. They were fine with this since they were well prepared to take the I.A. Then they saw the questions. There were only two of them.
1) Your Name __________ (2 marks)
2) Which tire got burst on your way back from the funeral? __________ (98 marks)
(a) Front Left (b) Front Right (c) Back Left (d) Back Right

A camel and her calf were lying around under a tree. Then the calf asked, “Why do camels have humps?”
The mother camel considered this and replied, “We are desert animals so we have humps to store water so we can survive with very little water.”The baby camel thought for a moment then said, “Ok…why are our legs long and our feet rounded?”
Her mama replied, “They are meant for walking in the desert.”The baby paused. After a minute, the calf asked again, “Why are our eyelashes long? Sometimes they get in my way.”
The mama responded, “Those long thick eyelashes protect your eyes from the desert sand when it blows in the wind.
The calf thought and thought. Then she said, “Ok. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking through the desert and these eye lashes protect my eyes from the desert then why are we in the Zoo?”

A man walked to the top of a mountain to talk to God. The man asked, “God, what’s a million years to you?” and God said, “A minute.”
Then the man smiled and asked, “Well, what’s a million dollars to you?” and God said, “A penny.”Smiling even wider, the man asked, “God, can I have a penny, please?” and God said, “Sure, in a minute.”
Moral: God has the final say. Look up to Him. Have a good weekend.
