    Can children who belong to certain ethnic groups use that as an excuse not to go to school?

    Only if they’re tigers.

    Well, Hobbes probably did have a Tiger Mom.

    The law also says that Tigers must be home schooled.

    Do ya think Hobbes turns into Mom’s imaginary friend while Calvin is away at school?

    That’s probably the only way she has survived six years with Calvin!

    Limerick: There was a Young Lady of Niger


    There was a young lady of Niger
    Who smiled as she rode on a tiger;
    They returned from the ride
    With the lady inside,
    And the smile on the face of the tiger.

    Now imagine it is Calvin riding the Tiger.

    Of course Niger is in Africa and there are no tigers there. Niger means black. Also the name of a river.

    Niger is also a country in Africa. And as there are no tigers in Africa, the lady had never seen one, which excuses her so thoughtlessly riding one.

    @ Night-Gaint49:

    Puella Rigensis ridebat
    Quam tigris in tergo vehebat.
      Externa profecta
    Interna revecta
    Sed risus cum tigre manebat.

    Regardless of who wrote it If Niger is pronounced properly, the limerick doesn’t work.

    You can’t “wreck” a grade curve. Pass unqualified students maybe, but you can’t wreck a grade curve. A grade curve is just another name for a bell curve and they can only be skewed to one side or the other.

    I think it’s our old friend Anon. Lear’s limericks weren’t this good.

    Here in UK we pronounce it Nai – djer, so it almost works for us. As well as most other limericks, anyway.

    There was a young fellow from Sparta

    a really magnificent f##ter
    On the strength of one bean
    He`d f##t God Save the Queen,
    And Beethoven`s Moonlight Sonata.
