Jefferson, a Virgin


Ah, the creative minds of students. Below is an excerpt from a paper written and submitted by a student.

One of the causes of the Revolutionary Wars was the English put tacks in their tea. Also, the colonists would send their pacels through the post without stamps.

During the War, Red Coats and Paul Revere was throwing balls over stone walls. The dogs were barking and the peacocks crowing. Finally, the colonists won the War and no longer had to pay for taxis.

Delegates from the original thirteen states formed the Contented Congress. Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Franklin had gone to Boston carrying all his clothes in his pocket and a loaf of bread under each arm. He invented electricity by rubbing cats backwards and declared "a horse divided against itself cannot stand." Franklin died in 1790 and is still dead.

OMG, that is hilarious!!! Oh, I have a funny story about my show: imagine lightening an entire stage with only 8 lights, 4 of which barely do anything (aka 500 watt nothingness). Yes, it should be interesting... and right now is SO annoying. Who the frick buys 4 500 watt lights when you only have 8 total ??!!?
