:) Kids On The Internet
My kids love going to the Web, and they keep track of their passwords by writing them on Post-it notes.

I noticed their Disney password was "GoofyMickeyMinniePluto" and so I asked why it was so long.

"Because," my son explained, "they said it had to have at least four characters."

A teacher asked one of her pupils, 'What's the nation's capital?'

The reply was, 'Washington DC'

On being asked what the 'DC' stood for, the pupil added, 'Dot com!'

A little first grader
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, a policeman was interrupted by a little first grader. Looking at his uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?"

"Yes," he replied and continued writing his report.

"My mother says if I ever need help, I should ask the police. Is that right?"

"Yes, that's right," he said.

"Well, then," she said, extending her foot, "would you please tie my shoe?"

Mathematics test
Father : Why did you fail your mathematics test?

Son : On Monday, teacher said 3+5=8

Father : So?

Son : On Tuesday, she said 4+4=8 And on Wednesday, she said 6+2=8.

Son : If she can't make up her mind, how do I know the right answer?
