It was the first day of school and a new student named Chandrashekhar
Subrahmanyam entered the fourth grade.
The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History. Who
said >'Give me liberty, or give me Death' ?"
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrashekhar, who had his
hand up: "Patrick Henry, 1775" he said.
"Very good!" Who said "Government of the People, by the People, for the
People, shall not perish from the Earth?"
Again, no response except from Chandrashekhar. "Abraham Lincoln, 1863"
The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be ashamed.
Chandrashekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its
history than you do."
She heard a loud whisper: "F**k the Indians."
"Who said that?" she demanded.
Chandrashekhar put his hand up. "General Custer, 1862."
At that point, a student in the back ! said, "I'm gonna puke."
The teacher glares around and asks "All right! Now, who said that?"
Again, Chandrashekhar says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime
Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? S*ck this!"
Chandrashekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the
teacher, "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"
Now with almost mob hysteria someone said "You little shit. If you say
anything else, I'll kill you."
Chandrashekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice, "Gary Condit
to Chandra Levy, 2001."
The teacher fainted. And as the class gathered around the teacher on
the floor, someone said, "Oh shit, we're f**ked!"
And Chandrashekhar said quietly, "George Bush, Iraq, 2007."
