Who knows what they'll do next.

Subject: Teacher Arrested in New York
NEW YORK, NY - 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 a search of absolute

value. 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 three 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.
