For most kids, salads are the worst thing imaginable, unless you can add things like ranch, cheese, croutons, and chicken nuggets. Dang, that sounds really good. Some kids, on the other hand, don’t mind a bit of crisp, crunchy lettuce, like this student. It’s almost as if he was practicing his sleight-of-hand, and had moved on from balls and cards to entire heads of lettuce. Or, this was one of two known instances of spontaneous lettuce.
The only other time it’s happened was in Surrey, England, in 1986, appearing in the middle of the road in front of a delivery truck that ended up crashing into an ice cream van.
Was It at Least Around the Holidays?
Snowball fights might be common when the snow covers the ground, but there can be some other fights as well. We have to hope that the ornaments were the traditional round orbs that will bounce harmlessly off chests or heads, but there are a lot of different kinds. Snowflakes that are covered in glitter, crystal reindeer, ceramic Santas.
Depending on what the students had to use, this fight could have broken out into an all-out war. Oh, and then there are the icicles that could be used for close-quarters combat. Thankfully, the teacher stepped in to diffuse the situation before things could get any more violent.
I Want to Be a Mama Duck
We've all had that thought that we could start to amass an army of fowls when we see a single egg, lying alone. Usually, of course, we're told that we shouldn't mess with the egg, since the egg's parents wouldn't appreciate it. This student didn't get the message and was carrying around a duck's egg for who knows how long.
Of course, it was a waste of time, since the egg either hadn't been fertilized, or it hadn't made it past those early stages. It was spoiled, and spoiled eggs stink. The teacher had to hand out some harsh knowledge to the girl.
Good for Some Classes
While smartphones have taken over the function of this little device (and thousands of others), we bet this thing was a hit back in the day. It might not have been allowed during a language class, but it was a learning tool, and those are usually not only allowed but encouraged. Unless, as in this case, they're too distracting for the students to pay attention to world history.
If the student was spending his or her off-time training up on Spanish, French, or Japanese, that would be fine. Just don't do it during class. You have to learn about Richard the Third right now.
Uh, Hello? Can You Come to the School?
Like most tortoises, gopher tortoises start out quite small, able to fit in a child's hand without issue. When they've grown up, however, they can become more than a foot long and more than ten pounds in weight. This student just wanted a pet during class, but, as this article shows, it's not a great idea. Especially for an animal that is on the endangered list.
We doubt the tortoise was hurt – they have those shells, you know – but it's not the kind of place for a tortoise that needs all the help it can get.
