Joke: Turn left

After I passed the test, I called DMV and scheduled a road test.  On the day of road test, I was nervous and asked the DMV official to repeat on many occasions to prevent misunderstanding. However, I still failed the test.
At an intersection, the DMV official ordered: “Turn left.”
To make sure I understand her order, I repeated: “Do you mean turn left?”
“Right!” She said.
I made a right turn!

Joke: Right of the road

When I first arrived at the United States, my English was poor. In order to get a driver license, I had to pass a knowledge test first.  In order to pass the knonledge test, I had to study the brochure. I had a hard time understanding the phase “right of the road”.  When I asked a fellow student, he told me, “right of the road means the right side of the road. Every driver must drive on the right side of the road.”  Then, he pondered, “Who will drive on the left side then? Aren’t we wasting half of the road?”

          Pinkie and Whitie Bear were two bear sisters who lived in a small town named Friendly Forests. Their great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandpa was one of the first rainbow bears to live in Friendly Forests. The team of bears named it Friendly Forests because all the deer, rabbits, and bears who had alreadly lived there were extremely helpful and caring. They made new lives for the new bears. 
          Pinkie and Whitie shared a large bedroom in their humogous mansion. It was called The Flower Garden. Pinkie and Whitie loved their big house. They cared for the flowers and kept their room neat. Everyone loved and admired their house.
          Pinkie and Whitie were twins, but their personalities were completely different. Pinkie was a perfect girl who always got A+ on her tests. She was also very pretty and had lots of friends. Whitie, on the other hand, was a good student and a great athlete and musician, but only had one or two close friends. Both girls were very well known in school for their own abilities.
          One day, Whitie and Seahea, a seahorse neighbor, were reading about comets and asteroids when Ms. Brown’s phone rang. She hurried out the door to answer it. While she was gone, people started passing notes. Pinkie passed one to whitie that said,”Janet wants you to come to her birthday party.” Whitie had just enough time to scribble an answer before Ms. Brown came back. Ms.Brown was the nicest third grade teacher at Bruno Bear Elementary School. The school was named after Pinkie and Whitie’s great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandpa.Ms. Brown probably wouldn’t punish Whitie for passing a note, but she wanted to stay on the safe side.
