If you ever receive a gift of hair, you’re going to be confused. Unless you’re bald and need to create a wig, this is not a gift you want to receive. And if you’re like this teacher and you receive a bag of literally every strand of hair she’s ever had cut, you need to notify the police because that student is going to cause some issues once she grows up.
We bet there are huge, long stories that led up to this event. This isn’t a confiscated item, but it was still too weird for us to pass up when we found it.
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.
He Is the Spider Whisperer
Okay, so the kid likes spiders. That's not so bad, right? What's that, you've never heard of a redback spider? They have another name: the Australian black widow. Highly venomous, highly dangerous, and they're small enough that the bite marks are almost impossible to find.
We are not spider experts, but the fact that this kid wasn't ever bitten even though he hunted these spiders down every day for a month is practically a miracle – and if he had been bitten, it's possible he could have died. We wonder if it was the same spider every day. That would have been wild. And maybe worse.
Like Big Marbles
That's one way to get the class's attention. And we would be hard-pressed to find another teacher who had to confiscate EYEBALLS, even if they are glass eyes. And the number of times a teacher has been allowed to place a student's eyes inside a plastic bag is almost certainly one. How on Earth did this kid get the idea to take his eyeballs out and throw them around?
People with autism think about things in different ways, but this is just bizarre. And yet, it happened, which we're sure was great fun to all the other students in the class.
The Case of the Confiscated Item
There are a couple of perfectly reasonable explanations for why this story happened. The phone case had naughty words on it, or it showed inappropriate graphic images. We're going to ignore those and go with the story that the teacher was actually an alien trying to get back to its home planet, and all it needed to complete its rocket ship was a phone case.
That specific phone case. The perfect size, shape, and density. Otherwise, the egg sacks were going to break down, leading to “Engsplum,” which results in termination. Yeah, that's why.
