A bunch of ellipses, a cylinder, and some lines are hanging around together talking:
The ellipses, “Hey, we’re leaves!”
The long cylinder, “And I’m a trunk.”
The lines, “I guess we’re branches.”
They arrange themselves accordingly. Euclid comes along, sits down next to the shapes, and asks what they are.
The shapes respond, “Gee, I’m a tree!”
A little girl loses one of her baby teeth. That night, before bed, she puts it under her pillow for the Tooth Fairy.
The next day she wakes up, looks under the pillow, and the tooth is still there. She asks her mother why the Tooth Fairy didn’t come?
Instead of explaining the mother yells out to her husband, ”Bill, you forgot to put out the tooth fairy money, didn’t you?”
A man is convinced he has telekinesis. A group of scientists finally agree to test his claim. The man is placed in a room with a cup on an edge of a table. The scientists tell the man to knock the cup off the table using the telekinesis. The man stares with complete and utter focus but with no results.
For weeks the experiment continues, the man sits there staring at the cup with relentless ferocity but nothing happens. Suddenly, without warning, an earthquake strikes, shaking the table and causing the cup to slide off and come crashing down onto the floor. At that, the man turns to the scientists with a smile and says, “See!”
The scientists say, “Yeah, but you didn’t cause the cup to fall, the earthquake did.”
The man says, ”What do you think caused the earthquake?”
