Three Indian women were pregnant. The first gave birth to a son while laying on a deer skin. The second gave birth to a son while laying on a buffalo skin. The third gave birth to twin sons while laying on a hippopotamus skin. Thus was born the Pythagorean Theorem: “The sons of the hippopotamus are equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides.”
Stupid Snorklewacker. Everyone knows it’s e=mc²
The best way to teach geometry: build an octagonal, peaked roofed gazebo.
Y’all forgot that key little factor, “for all right triangles”….otherwise, you have to use trig.
The Planes Indians practiced polygamy, and one chief had three squaws. The first squaw lived in a teepee of elk hide, the second in a teepee made of buffalo hide, and the youngest in a teepee of hippopotamus hide. Then he slept with each wife on the eve of his great hunting trip. He was gone nine moons and when he returned, he went into the elk hide teepee and found that his wife had borne him a son. Likewise, in the buffalo hide teepee, that squaw, too, had borne him a son. So, imagine his surprise when he found twin baby boys in the hippopotamus hide teepee.This just proves that …The squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sum of the squaws of the other two hides.
The original Pythagorean Theorem was that the shortest point between two bathrooms was three cups of coffee or three beers…
Bobbi Harlow is right. Young Binkley needs to get over his neuroses and take the geometry test!
