What would you think if your 3rd grader came home with a question like this?

That's so sad. No one has a sense of humor anymore.

Personally, I think it's funny- definitely appealling to the 3rd gr mentality.

I can see how other parents might disagree, however.

What better way to get the kids interested in math than give them funny math problems?  Mine would LOVE that kind of problem.  

That being said, there could be a sensitive kid that could have trouble with that.  I can think of one or two kids in our school that would be upset as they do not, in general, understand humor.  

As long as the teacher knew the class enough to know they would get it, I would be all for it.  Firing the teacher seems really far fetched.  The union didn't put up a fuss?  Was this in a church school where they might find it less funny?

Sweet! Ppl can be too uptight. He shouldn't've gotten fired for that.
