Q: Why don’t you do arithmetic in the jungle?
A: Because if you add 4 + 4 you get ate!
Explanation: So, school starts tomorrow in St. Paul, MN so this bad joke is for my SPPS friends.
Yes, it is true that 4+4 = 8; but 8 sounds the same as “ate” (which should be eaten as in “you would be eaten”) and that is what makes this joke funny! Have a great start to the new school year!!
