The Teacher and American History

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty, or give me Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Yoshi a bright foreign exchange student from Japan , who had his hand up: ‘Patlick Henly, 1775′ he said.

‘Very good!’

Who said, ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?’

Again, no response except from Little Yoshi, ‘Ablaham Rincoln, 1863′.

‘Excellent!’, said the teacher continuing, ‘let’s try one a bit more difficult…’ Who said, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?’

Once again, Yoshi’s was the only hand in the air and he said; ‘John F. Kennedy, 1961′.

The teacher snapped at the class, ‘Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves, Little Yoshi isn’t from this country and he knows more about our history than you do.’

She heard a loud whisper: ‘Fuck the Japs,’

‘Who said that? I want to know right now!’ she angrily demanded.

Little Yoshi put his hand up, ‘General MacArthur, 1941.’

At that point, a student in the back said, ‘I’m gonna puke.’

The teacher glares around and asks, ‘All right!!! Now who said that!?’

Again, Little Yoshi says, ‘George Bush to the Japanese Plime Ministah, 1991.’

Now furious, another student yells, ‘Oh yeah? Suck this!’

Little Yoshi jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, ‘Bill Clinton, to Monica Rwinsky, 1997!’

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, ‘You little shit. If you say anything else, I’ll kill you.’

Little Yoshi frantically yells at the top of his voice, ‘Michar Jackson to the children witnesses testifying against him, 2004.’

The teacher fainted.

As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, ‘Oh shit, We’re screwed!’

Little Yoshi said quietly, ‘the American people, November 4, 2008.’
