Jacobâ€™s degree program required an algebra class. He petitioned the deanâ€™s office demanding a release from the class without penalty. The dean wanted to know why.
â€œI canâ€™t take algebra,â€ Jacob explained, â€œBecause exponents are against my religion.â€
â€œThatâ€™s preposterous!â€ The dean snapped.
â€œI am an atheist,â€ Jacob explained. â€œI donâ€™t believe in higher powers.â€
Fantastic! Great job, Quilly!
Kay — I am glad you enjoyed my silly.
Well that really adds up.
Tony — glad someone is keeping a tally!
Clever 55! A catch-22 for the dean.
Belinda — I think the Dean deep-sixed the idea.
groan…smiles. i might have changed my beliefs if that was the case. lol.
Brian — I think the ranks of atheism would swell if this worked ….
That pretty much sums it up!
Karen — nah, it was a total farce!
Barbara — my work here is done1
I love it!
Linda — it figures.
lol – this is really clever!
LOL! Even though as a math teacher I shouldn’t!

G-Man, I am considering losing the puns, but when I do that I often lose my inspiration, too.
Gotta love a math-joke 55! Well done, Quilly!
Eric — math jokes are the only thing that got me through college algebra!
ROFLMBO!!! Ohhhhh noooooo…. algebra could have made me a CONVERT!
Melli — I think the reason I succeeded at college Algebra is because I had learned to wholly believe in and trust my higher power — God!
Hoho, great play on words Quilly!
Thanks, Akelamalu. I love words and playing with them.
Darn! Wish I had thought of that. Very cute 55, Quilly.
Patti — I wish I would have thought of it sooner! I am about 20 years too late ….
Damn funny. I have an engineer friend who is an atheist. Can’t wait to pass this along.

Monkey Man — I hope your friend enjoys it.

Thom — Dr. John and I because friends because I wrote this kind of thing. I didn’t just start them after he died!
clever lad, that jacob. a future politician, perhaps?
Polona — I doubt his ploy succeeded, but maybe his future campaigns will improve.
Your one sharp cookie! at the time not even my buhda would save me from the ravages of college algebra…
Brighid — luckily, I had the best math teacher ever and he helped me understand and learn!
ha – if only the prof would see the sense..
Nice 55 Quilly
Have a great weekend smiles from the Moon
Moondustwriter — no sale. Prof says one doesn’t need God to do math. Well, at least he said that until he met me.
Witty clever gal nice write ff55er, now tell me please did it work? for if it did, I can use that excuse in grad school,
Joanny — you can try it, but you’d best go ahead, buy the math book and secure a tutor.
Lol! That was funny!
