    A group of primary school infants, accompanied by two female teachers, went on a field trip to Cheltenham races to see and learn about thoroughbred horses.

    When it was time to take the children to the toilet, it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other.

    The teacher assigned to the boys was waiting outside the men's toilet when one of the boys came out and told her that none of them could reach the urinal.

    Having no choice, she went inside, helped the boys with their pants, and began hoisting the boys up, one by one, holding their willies to direct the flow away from their clothes.

    As she lifted one, she couldn't help but notice that he was unusually well endowed. Trying not to show that she was staring, the teacher said, 'You must be in year four.'

    'No, missus,' he replied. 'I'm riding Silver Arrow in the 2.15.'

    Boy, thats a good one. Thanks @bobcat.
    Though a tad off the topic but somehow tied to Biden's remarks on making education affordable, let me pass on a disturbing news.
    yesterday the House quietly approved a bill to let Israel have a record 4 BILLION dollars military spending aid in 2013. Money out of your and my pocket. Guess who were the sponsors of the bill?
    Ilena Ros-Lehtinin (R) and Howard Berman (D).

    Guess also why it was done on the quiet without a debate & the American public being aware? Or why our'free' media is sitting on this alarming news when we are struggling with debt & deficit??

    @ saywhat

    It is unbelievable that our government says they don't have the funds to take care of our needy in our country, yet we are able to spend billions for another country to build their military. There is truly something wrong with priorities.

    The media doesn't report change as *evolution* when it comes to how some boys now view your holy men. Something happened that changed your mind, young man. (Mr. Obama too)

      I haven't clue as to what you even meant.

      The media reports what Congress wants it to know.
      That was in reply to saywhat.

  9. I don't get it

    Why would a horse be using the men's washroom, and how could the teacher be strong enough to lift it?

  10. Now I get it

    Oh. I missed the word "riding". As you were.

    Good afternoon to you too @kelly.
    @Scottish Mama
    My good Jewish friends and great folks In Jewish Voice for Peace , yours humbly included and other orgs and concerned Americans did try raising our voices against this bill by writing to our respective Congress person. But the big boot of the Lobby came down heavy as ever.
