My physics teacher in rural Iowa said I'd pass his class when pigs fly, because I wasn't applying myself.

A group of soldiers on a first-aid course were tested by the instructor. He asked the recruits: 'If the sergeant major sustained a head injury during an exercise what would you do about it ?

One soldier said: 'I'd wrap a tourniquet around his neck and tighten it until the bleeding stopped.'

What did the wind turbine say when asked what they thought about sustainable energy?
