CATHOLIC MATH

 

 Little Tommy was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried

 everything;  tutors, flash cards, special learning centers, in short,

 everything they  could think of. Finally in a last ditch effort, they

 took Tommy down & enrolled him in the local Catholic School.

 

 After the first day, little Tommy comes home with a very serious look

 on his  face. He doesn't kiss his mother hello. Instead, he goes

 straight to his  room & starts studying. Books & papers are spread

 out all  over the room and little Tommy is hard at work. His mother

 is amazed. She  calls him down to dinner and to her shock, the minute

 he is done he marches back to his room without a word and in no time

 he is back hitting the  books as hard as before.  This goes on for

 sometime, day after day while the mother tries to understand what

 made all the difference.

 

Finally, little Tommy brings home his report card. He quietly lays it

 on the  table and goes up to his room and hits the books. With great

 trepidation, his Mom looks at it and to her surprise, little Tommy

 got an A in math. She can no longer hold her curiosity. She goes to

 his room and says:

 

"Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?"  Little Tommy looks at her and

shakes his head.

 "Well, then," she replies, "was it the books, the discipline, the

 structure,  the uniforms,WHAT was it?"

 

 Little Tommy looks at her and says, "Well, on the first day of

 school, when  I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they

 weren't fooling around."
