    My boss just emailed me this one...

    NEW YORK -- A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy
    International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession
    of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a calculator.
    At a morning press conference, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said he
    believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-gebra movement.
    He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying
    weapons of math instruction. "Al-gebra is a problem for us," Gonzales said.
    "They desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on
    tangents in search of absolute values.
    They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as
    'unknowns', but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of
    the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country.
    As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides to every
    triangle'."
    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had wanted
    us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more
    fingers and toes."
    White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or
    profound statement by the president.
