     More of student's bloopers collected by teachers, from 8th grade
     through college.

     17) It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg
     invented removable type and the Bible. Another important invention was
     the circulation of blood. Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure
     because he invented cigarettes and started smoking. And Sir Francis
     Drake circumcised the world with a 100 foot clipper.

     18) The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare. He
     was born in the year 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He never made
     much money and is famous only because of his plays. He wrote
     tragedies, comedies, and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter.
     Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couplet. Romeo's last wish
     was to be laid by Juliet.

     19) Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He
     wrote Donkey Hote. The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote
     Paradise Lost. Then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained.

     20) During the Renaissance America began. Christopher Columbus was a
     great navigator who discovered America while cursing about the
     Atlantic. His ships were called the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Fe.

     21) Later, the Pilgrims crossed the ocean, and this was called
     Pilgrim's Progress. The winter of 1620 was a hard one for the
     settlers. Many people died and many babies were born. Captain John
     Smith was responsible for all this.

     22) One of the causes of the Revolutionary War was the English put
     tacks in their tea. Also, the colonists would send their parcels
     through the post without stamps. Finally the colonists won the War and
     no longer had to pay for taxis.

     23) Delegates from the original 13 states formed the Contented
     Congress. Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two
     singers of the Declaration of Independence. Franklin discovered
     electricity by rubbing two cats backwards and declared, "A horse
     divided against itself cannot stand."
     Franklin died in 1790 and is still dead.

     24) Soon the Constitution of the United States was adopted to secure
     domestic hostility. Under the constitution the people enjoyed the
     right to keep bare arms.

     25) Abraham Lincoln became America's greatest Precedent. Lincoln's
     mother died in infancy, and he was born in a log cabin which he built
     with his own hands. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves by signing the
     Emasculation Proclamation. On the night of April 14, 1865, Lincoln
     went to the theater and got shot in his seat by one of the actors in a
     moving picture show. The believed assinator was John Wilkes Booth, a
     supposingly insane actor. This ruined Booth's career.

     26) Meanwhile in Europe, the enlightenment was a reasonable time.
     Voltaire invented electricity and also wrote a book called Candy.
     Gravity was invented by Issac Walton. It is chiefly noticeable in the
     autumn when the apples are falling off the trees.

     27) Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a
     large number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster
     which he kept up in his attic. Bach died from 1750 to the present.
     Bach was the most famous composer in the world and so was Handel.
     Handel was half German half Italian and half English. He was very
     large.

     28) Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he
     wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone
     was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for
     this.

     29) The French Revolution was accomplished before it happened and
     catapulted into Napoleon. Napoleon wanted an heir to inherit his
     power, but since Josephine was a baroness, she couldn't have any
     children.

     30) The sun never set on the British Empire because the British Empire
     is in the East and the sun sets in the West. Queen Victoria was the
     longest queen. She sat on a thorn for 63 years. She was a moral woman
     who practiced virtue. Her death was the final event which ended her
     reign.

     31) The nineteenth century was a time of a great many thoughts and
     inventions. People stopped reproducing by hand and started reproducing
     by machine. The invention of the steamboat caused a network of rivers
     to spring up. Cyrus McCormick invented the McCormick raper, which did
     the work of a hundred men. Louis Pasteur discovered a cure for rabbis.
     Charles Darwin was a naturalist who wrote the Organ of the Species.
     Madman Curie discovered radio. And Karl Marx became one of the Marx
     brothers.

     32) The First World War, caused by the assignation of the Arch-Duck by
     an anahist, ushered in a new error in the anals of human history.
