Wednesday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!


WELCOME to Wednesday August 8, 2018.

A ten year-old Jewish boy was failing math. His parents tried
everything from tutors to hypnosis; but to no avail.

Finally, at the insistence of a family friend, they decided to
enroll their son in a private Catholic school.

After the first day, the boy’s parents were surprised when he
walked in after school with a stern, focused and very
determined expression on his face. He went straight past them,
right to his room and quietly closed the door.

For nearly two hours he toiled away in his room with math books
strewn about his desk and the surrounding floor. He emerged
long enough to eat, and after quickly cleaning his plate, went
straight back to his room, closed the door and worked
feverishly at his studies until bedtime.

This pattern of behavior continued until it was time for the
first quarter’s report card. The boy walked in with it
unopened, laid it on the dinner table, and went straight to his
room. Cautiously, his mother opened it and, to her amazement,
she saw a large red ‘A’ under the subject of Math. Overjoyed,
she and her husband rushed into their son’s room, thrilled at
his remarkable progress.

“Was it the nuns that did it?” the father asked. The boy shook
his head and said, “No.”

“Was it the one-to-one tutoring? The peer-mentoring?” “No.”
“The textbooks?  The teachers? The curriculum?” “No”, said the

“On that first day, when I walked in the front door and saw
that guy nailed to the Plus Sign, I KNEW they meant business!”

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a wonderful Wednesday people,
and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP!
Peace I am outta here, Eucman!😁😎


“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
“Laughter is wine for the soul – laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with
seriousness – the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.”
― Seán O’Casey


“If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know a man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, of seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you will get better results if you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he’s a good man.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”
― Victor Borge

Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???  “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need…roads.” 

ANSWER: Back to the Future! Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) says this to Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) in response to Marty’s concern that Doc’s time-travelling DeLorean won’t have enough room on his street to achieve 88 MPH, the requisite speed to achieve time travel. What Marty doesn’t know is that the DeLorean has been upgraded, and can now fly!

“Back to the Future” concerns itself with the idea of a teenager travelling back in time and interfering (accidentally, for the most part) with the events that led his parents to get together, and cause him to exist in the first place.
