Benefits of a Catholic Education
Little Johnny was doing very badly in maths.
Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Little Johnny down and enrolled him in the local Catholic school.
After the first day, Little Johnny came home with a very serious look on his face.
He didn’t even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying.
Books and papers were spread out all over the room and Little Johnny was hard at work.
His mother was amazed.
She called him down to dinner; to her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting the books as hard as before.
This went on for some time, day after day while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference.
Finally, Little Johnny brought home his report card.
He quietly laid it on the table went up to his room and hit the books.
With great trepidation his Mum looked at it and to her great surprise, Little Johnny got an “A” in maths.
She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said: “Son, what was it?
Was it the nuns?”
Little Johnny looked at her and shook his head, “No”
“Well, then”, she replied, “Was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms?
WHAT was it?”
Little Johnny looked at her and said,
“Well, on the first day of school, when I saw that guy nailed to the Plus Sign,
I knew they weren’t f***ing around.”
