School Teacher Arrested @ Piarco Airport

I just had to post this after reading it in my email today... I don't know how true it is though ;)

oxford geometry setA Secondary School teacher was arrested today at Piarco International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a calculator. At a press conference, Attorney General John Jeremy 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," Jeremy said. "They desire 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 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, PM Manning said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes."
