    The following gems of wisdom were
    gleaned from test papers and essays from
    elementary, junior high, high school, and
    college students :-

    1. "Water is composed of two gins, Oxygin and
    Hydrogin. Oxygin is pure gin. Hydrogin is gin and water."

    2. "Blood flows down one leg and up the other."

    3. "Dew is formed on leaves when the sun shines
    down on them and makes them perspire."

    4. "Mushrooms always grow in damp places and so
    they look like umbrellas."

    5. "Momentum: What you give a person when they
    are going away."

    6. "To prevent milk from turning sour, keep it
    in the cow."

    7. "The parts of speech are lungs and air."

    8. "The inhabitants of Moscow are called
    Mosquitoes."

    9. "A census taker is a man who goes from house
    to house increasing the population."

    10. "Most of the houses in France are made of
    plaster of Paris."

    11. "The spinal column is a long bunch of
    bones. The head sits on the top and you sit on
    the bottom."

    12. "The word trousers is an uncommon noun
    because it is singular at the top and plural
    at the bottom."

    13. "Iron was discovered because someone smelt
    it."

    14. "Syntax is all the money collected at the
    church from sinners."

    15. Beethoven wrote music even though he was
    deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music. He
    took long walks in the forest even when
    everyone was calling for him. Beethoven
    expired in 1827 and later died for this.

    16. The sun never set on the British Empire
    because the British Empire's in the East and
    the sun sets in the West.

    17. Gravity was invented by Issac Walton. It is
    chiefly noticeable in the fall when the apples
    are falling off the trees.

    18. Finally Magna Carta provided that no man
    should be hanged twice for the same offence.

    19. After his death, his career suffered a
    dramatic decline.

    20. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer
    but by another man of that name.

    21. Bach was the most famous composer in the
    world and so was Handel. Handel was half
    German, half Italian and half English. He was very large.

    22. The Greeks were a highly sculptured people,
    and without them we wouldn't have history. The
    Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth.

    23. The invention of the steamboat caused a
    network of rivers to spring up.

    24. Queen Victoria was the longest queen. She
    sat on a thorn for 63 years.
