Who says today's kids aren't smart ?? (Some Humor)

Who says today's kids aren't smart ??
(Well, some of them are )!!

At a high school in Montana a group of high schoolers
played a prank on the school. They let three goats
loose in the school.

Before they let them go they painted numbers
on the sides of the goats. 1,2,4.

Local school administrators spent most of the day looking for #3.

(Thanks to past president Bob Cross for sharing)

You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases,
