Funny Short Story about a Clever 1st Grade School Boy

Funny Short Story Of A Clever School Boy

Student Says He’s Too Smart for First Grade. See what his principal says.

A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students named Johnny. One day, she asked Johnny what his problem was and he replied,
“I’m too smart for the first grade, my sister is in the third grade and I’m smarter than her too.”

The teacher took him to the principal’s office and explained the situation to him.

The principal told her that he would give Johnny a test, and if he failed to answer one question, then he would have to go back to the first grade and be quiet.

The teacher and Johnny both agreed that this was fair.

Principal: “What is 3 times 3?”

Johnny: “9.”

Principal: “What is 6 times 6?”

Johnny: “36.”

And so on it went like this and the principal asked him every question he thought a third grader should know. Finally after about an hour, he told the teacher,
“I see no reason why Johnny can’t go to the third grade, he answered all of my questions right.”

The teacher asked if she could ask him some questions.
The principal and Johnny agreed that since she knows Johnny better, it would be fair to let her.

Teacher: “What does a cow have 4 of that I only have 2 of?”
Johnny: “Legs.”

Teacher: “What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?”

At this question, the principal gasps but before he can stop him from answering, Johnny says,


Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”
Johnny: “Pants.”

Teacher: “What starts with F and ends with K and means a lot of excitement?”
Johnny: “Firetruck!”

The principal breathes a big sigh of relief and says,
“Put Johnny in the fifth grade, I got the last 4 questions wrong myself!”
