JOKE: Hard Work

A young boy is doing poorly in math at public school. His mother decides to send him to private school to rectify the situation.

Lo and behold, after a semester in the new private Catholic school, the boy's grades were straight A's, even in math! Surprised, his mother asked him how he liked his new school.

"Oh, it's all right, I guess," he replies.

"They must be teaching you some new tricks!"

"Not really."

"Then what do you think is making the difference in your grades?"

"Well", he says, "as soon as I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they meant business!"
