We are starting a new unit this week, a simulation mimicking the pilgrims' voyage from Europe to the New World. The boys started joking that Chuck Norris was one of the passengers on the Mayflower. Eventually, one of them came up with this hilarious joke:
Most people from the Mayflower didn't survive the first winter in the New World. What they didn't know is that the first winter didn't survive Chuck Norris.
In order to prevent the kids from believing that Chuck Norris actually landed on Plymouth Rock, I think I might have to teach them about how quickly jokes get old.
