Darqueeze played high school football in Detroit  He was a great running back, but a really poor student  Unfortunately, at graduation, he didn't have enough credits  But he was a great football star and the students held a rally to demand the principal give him a diploma anyway  They were so insistent that the principal agreed that if Darqueeze could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma.
The one question test was held in the auditorium and all the students packed the place  In fact, it was standing room only.
The principal was on the stage and told him to come up  Diploma in hand, the principal said: "Darqueeze, if you can answer this one question
correctly I'll give you your diploma."   "Darqueeze, how much is three times seven?"
Darqueeze looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes, pondering the question. Soon, the other students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway!
Graduate him anyway!"


Then Darqueez held up his hand and the auditorium became silent  He said, "I think I know the answer Three times seven is twenty-one"
A hush fell over the auditorium and then all the other students began to chant:  "Give him another chance! Give him another chance!
