See, I was right that the Y2K bug was going to cause havoc.

OK, who screwed with the boobie filter? MIKE!!!

at least she isn't in japan, she'd have been ordered to be in a porno

The last time Thuen started school, in 1903, she had to walk an hour each way.

...in the snow uphill both ways.

Can't go, not potty trained.
2003-01-31 10:28:10 AM  
There's no picture in the article, but I'll go out on a limb and say, "I wouldn't hit it."
2003-01-31 10:28:15 AM  
This sounds suspiciously like the work of Professor Chaos.

The letter also encouraged the centenarian's parents to list the children she would like to have in her class

So are her parents like 130, or is John Edward helping out with this request?

""Since I can already read, maybe I should skip a couple grades," she joked."

Jeez, what is this, farked up computer day?

DslainteC....I don't think you could hit it, it'd crumble.
2003-01-31 10:30:33 AM  
Thank God she doesn't live in Atlanta - they'd have arrested her.
2003-01-31 10:31:22 AM  

this article sucked.
2003-01-31 10:32:40 AM  
Oh my god! The horrors of the Y2k Bug!

2003-01-31 10:32:50 AM  
I think I read something like this 50 times.

It always happens to 106 yr. old.
2003-01-31 10:33:21 AM  

Lets talk about abortion.

"Since I can already read, maybe I should skip a couple grades," she joked.

"But we don't wet the bed anymore," her class-mates retaliated.

What does an old woman's snatch smell like?

Luckily, with the onset of osteoporosis, she will be the same size as the other children.
2003-01-31 10:37:37 AM  
heh...funny article.

Isn't this actually a Y1.9K bug ?

2003-01-31 10:44:56 AM  
What the...I'm not banned? I actually wasn't banned for the fiasco on last night's advice thread? YIPEE! Thank you admins! I did not intend to do that, and never again will I taint the fark threads.

There was a Popeye episode where he had to go back to school, starting from high school. Each time Popeye said something Popeye-like, he would get demoted a grade. He ended up in kindergarten I think. When he got home, Pappy asked how his first day of school went, and Popeye replied, "I finished school from top to bottom."
2003-01-31 10:52:39 AM  
please, won't somebody think of the elderly chlidren?
2003-01-31 10:55:14 AM  
Man, just imagine all the "When I was your age" stories she could tell to the little bastards!
2003-01-31 11:07:24 AM  
As long as they don't put her in a class with the dead British children.
2003-01-31 11:07:51 AM  

I'm sure she's forgotten more then I have every known.
2003-01-31 11:07:58 AM  
I do not want to see show and tell in that class...
2003-01-31 11:09:04 AM  
This is more evidence that you can't teach programmers much.
Y2K anyone?
2003-01-31 11:11:58 AM  
Gotta love Y2k problems in 2003!
2003-01-31 11:15:47 AM  
I'd hit it.
2003-01-31 11:19:06 AM  
I remember this article. I found it mildly amusing last year, too.
2003-01-31 11:26:54 AM  
What a surprise that this didn't happen in 'assacheutts!! Land of all things liberal and of course the "killer kennedy klan"!!
2003-01-31 11:31:22 AM  
FINALLY, I can bang a first grader without fear of recrimination!!!
2003-01-31 11:35:02 AM  
Ignore that.....

I'm trying....

Happy 106th Birthday and congrats on entering first grade to beautiful Ingeborg Bertea Thuen of Oslo, Norway. I'd hit it!

"Isn't this actually a Y1.9K bug ?"
I think it may be a Y2.0015 bug actually.
2003-01-31 11:48:31 AM  
So she'll be the only first grader who can touch her knees to her breasts while standing ? Blecch.
2003-01-31 11:49:00 AM  
Being 106 and being in first grade are a lot alike.

Someone else has to cut up your food for you.

Sometimes you have "an accident" in your pants.

Nap time at one o'clock.

Bedtime at eight o'clock.

I'm sure I'm missing other, more humorous ones, but it's ten minutes to ten in the morning, I have a meeting in an hour, and I'm drunk.
2003-01-31 11:51:03 AM  
Ok, that's it. Y2K. The world is ending. Etc. If anyone needs me, I'll be in the mountains. :p
2003-01-31 11:52:54 AM  
By the time you're 106, you're so far gone you basically NEED to repeat the first grade.


2003-01-31 12:00:19 PM  
All of the other 1st graders will make fun of her for crapping her pants!
2003-01-31 12:23:53 PM  
Old School!!!! :-P
