Anti-War Up - School teacher arrested
from a VVAWAI member
public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy
International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in
possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a
calculator. At a morning press conference, the Attorney General said
he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement.
He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with
carrying weapons of math instruction.
'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Attorney General said. 'They
derive solutions by means and extreme and true logic, and sometimes go
off on tangents in search of absolute values.' They use secret code
names like 'X' and 'Y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but we
determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of
coordinates in every country.
As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides
to every triangle'. When asked to comment on the arrest, the President
said, 'If God
had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would
have given us more fingers and toes.'
