Teacher arrested in NY at airport - Warning Spew Alert

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 compass, a slide-rule and a calculator.

At a morning press  conference, the  Attorney General Eric Holder 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," the Attorney General said. "'They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.'They use secret code names like 'X' and  'Y' and refer to themselves as unknowns, but we have determined  that 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 3 sides to every  triangle." When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama 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 by the President. It is believed that the Nobel Prize for Physics will follow…
