Essay

The English test had only one question: "Write an essay on 'The Most Beautiful Thing I Ever Saw.'"

One of the students finished his essay in less than a minute. It read in its entirety: "The most beautiful thing I ever saw was just too beautiful for words."

He got the only A in the class.

New trick

Little boy: "Oh, Gramma, I sure am happy to see you!  

Now maybe Daddy will do the trick he has been promising us."

Grandmother: "What trick is that?"

Little boy: "He told Mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again!"

Shaving Comeback

I can't say I've ever gotten a shave from a barber, but I've seen others who have. I was in a shop once, and an obviously new barber nicked a customer several times while giving him a shave.

The new barber, in an effort to smooth things over asked solicitously, "Do you want your head wrapped in a hot towel?"

"No thanks." said the customer. "I'll carry it home under my arm."
