Turtle Painter

From the geography teacher, Mr. Poop:

7th Grade Student: Mr. Poop, how did a turtle paint the Sistine Chapel?

Mr.Poop: What?

7th Grade Student: They said he had to lay on his back to paint it. That kills a turtle.

Mr. Poop: No it doesn't and a turtle didn't paint the Sistine Chapel. It was Michelangelo.

7th Grade Student: Well why did his parents name him after a Ninja Turtle?

An Ocean of Knowledge

My class watches a current events news show on Fridays. This particular segment dealt with the disaster in Japan. The reporter showed how a particular aircraft carrier was using water from the sea, through a sprinkler system, to hose down the ship. This happened next:

7th Grade Student: Mr. H, where do they get the water to run those sprinklers?

Mr. H: Well, they're in the ocean, so they probably suck it up from there.

7th Grade Student: But what do they do if the suck up all the water?

Mr. H: What?

Color Blind

Another story from the Mr. Poop files:

7th Grade Student: If you color blind, you can't see colors.

Mr. Poop: That's right...what does that have anything to do with this?

Student: You can still see numbers if you're color blind.

Mr. Poop: Even if the numbers are colored?

Student: Yup, color don't matter.
