A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks was having trouble with one of her

The teacher asked, "Harry, what is your problem?"

Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd
grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade

Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office.  While
Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal
what the situation was.

The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test and if he failed
to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and
behave. She agreed. Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained
to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"
Harry: "9".

Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"
Harry: "36".

And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader
should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to
the 3rd grade."

Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions." The
principal and Harry both agreed.

Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"
Harry, after a moment: "Legs."

Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"

The principal wondered, why does she ask such a question! Harry replied:

Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?" Harry: "Pants"

Ms. Brooks: What's starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval,
delicious and contains thin whitish liquid? Harry: Coconut

Ms. Brooks: What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?
The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the
Harry: Bubble gum

Ms. Brooks: What does a man do standing up, a woman do sitting down and a
dog do on three legs?" The principal's eyes open really wide and before he
could stop the answer.
Harry: Shake hands

Ms. Brooks: What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a 
lot of heat and excitement?
Harry: Firetruck

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "Put Harry
in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong"
