Jokes about Marriage


1.Is it not strange that the "best man" at a wedding is not the bridegroom? This must be the reason of so many unhappy marriages.
2."Gracious! What on earth did he marry her for?" "Oh, he said he wanted some one to amuse the children!"
3. LOVE SONG
    Love me, lady!
      My hair is gray;
    When round comes pay-day
      I cannot pay.
    My corns are awful,
      My prospects shady,
    I want a comforter:
      Love me, lady!

Alice's Superlative Mistake


Curiouser and curiouser!’ cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); ‘now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!’ (for when she looked down at her feet, they seemed to be almost out of
sight, they were getting so far off).

What is Alice's mistake? Write your answer in Comments below.

The Desert



When Webster defined a desert as a “dry, barren region, largely treeless and sandy” he was not thinking of the 50,000 square mile Great American Desert of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Most of it is usually dry and parts may be sandy, but as a whole, it is far from barren and treeless. Heavily vegetated with gray-green shrubs, small but robust trees, pygmy forests of grotesque cactuses and stiff-leaved yuccas, and myriads of herbaceous plants, the desert, following rainy periods, covers itself with a blanket of delicate, fragrant wildflowers.
Edmund C. Jaegar, author of several books on deserts, reports that the California deserts alone support more than 700 species of flowering plants.
The late Dr. Forrest Shreve, for many years Director of the Desert Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution near Tucson, Arizona, defined a desert as “a region of deficient and uncertain rainfall.” He divided the Great American Desert into four major sections: (1) Chihuahuan (chee-WAH-wahn), including the Mexican States of Chihuahua and Coahuila (coa-WHEE-lah), southwestern Texas, and south-central New Mexico; (2) Sonoran, including Baja California, southwestern Arizona, and northwestern Sonora; (3) Mojave (moh-HAH-vee), Colorado, including south-eastern California and extreme southern Nevada; (4) Great Basin, including Nevada, Utah, southwestern Idaho and southeastern Oregon.
Since the steppes and mesas of the Great Basin Desert have generally lower temperatures, higher elevations, and greater precipitation than the other three sections.

LEARNING FROM LEARNERS



Camping in the Forest
Look at this story about a camping trip. Find the mistakes and correct them.

The grade 5/6 students were in school and teacher told them, the bus is already here and let's go camping because we have to leave at 9:15 am. So, the students went to the camping place and they put their camping backpacks on the top shelf inside the bus. The location is Cheif Hector Camp. Then they arrived at the Cheif Heactor Camp and they started putting their camping backpacks down and taking things out of them.

 Suddenly a student said “What if a bear would come out and eat us?" “It would not eat you if you did not touch it." the teacher said. "Ok everyone, let's get the things going and let's see where we are going to sleep." the teacher said. " It's getting cold out here! Let's make the fire pit." the teacher said. So the students went to grab some sticks and stones. Then the students went to wash their hands when the fire pit was done and everyone sat around it with sticks of marshmellows. The teacher began to tell a scary story to them. Then they slept in the long houses near the camp. The long houses  were divided into two sections. At the end of the next day the students went packing. Finially the bus came and drove them back to school.
