Saturday Smile

The social studies teacher had just finished a unit on war and 
peace. "How many of you," he asked, "would say you're 
opposed to war?"

Not surprisingly, all hands went up.

The teacher asked, "who'll give us the reason for being 
opposed to war?"

A large, bored-looking boy in the back of the room raised 
his hand.

"Johnny?" The teacher said.

"I hate war," Johnny said, "because wars make history, 
and then some poor innocent kid has to memorize that
boring stuff."
