    This was posted on another list I'm on. No idea where it originated, but it's funny, I think. Might be good for a laugh for a teen struggling with math too.

    NEW YORK -- A public school teacher was arrested today
    at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he
    attempted to board a flight while in possession of a
    ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a
    calculator.

    At a morning press conference, Attorney General
    Alberto Gonzales said he believes the man is a member
    of the notorious Al-gebra movement.

    He did not identify the man, who has been charged by
    the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.
    "Al-gebra is a problem for us," Gonzales said. "They
    desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes
    go off on tangents in search of absolute values.

    They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer
    to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have determined
    they belong to a common denominator of the axis of
    medieval with coordinates in every country.

    As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There
    are 3 sides to every triangle'."

    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush
    said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of
    math instruction, he would have given us more fingers
    and toes."

    White House aides told reporters they could not recall
    a more intelligent or profound statement by the
    president.
