I just signed up to a movie-to-book club. I think they're clowning around, but they told me the new guy always has to-
read It and weep.

IT has nothing to do with Information Technology.
Teacher, may I borrow a pencil?
Jimmy: Teacher, may I borrow a pencil?
Teacher: I don't know, can you?
Jimmy: What? Last time I asked, you told me to use "May I". So unfair!
Teacher: Quit clowning around, Jimmy, you know you can't borrow a pencil over Zoom.
A Russian Joke
One day in second grade class, Vovochka received another bad grade. He says to his teacher: "Marivanna, one day I will become a very big and very important person, and you will feel bad for failing me."
The teacher replies, "Putin, stop clowning around and sit down."
