Amelia Bedelia you are an Idiot

8:15a Friday before Valentine's Day
(eating candy in homeroom)

Me: "Do you remember Amelia Bedelia?"

6th grader: "Oh, my gosh. She is so stupid! They say, 'hit the road', she gets a stick and hits the road. They say, 'french toast' and she puts the France flag in toast. They say, 'hot dog' and she gets a dog that is hot. She is an IDIOT!"

Me: "Tell me about it."

legitimate restaurant

Lunch Table

6th grader: "Mr. K, oh my gosh! We (hockey team) and I ate this restaurant in Indiana called..... I kid you not, it was legitimately called, 'The Corny Log' "

(starts laughing)

"And they couldn't understand why we were laughing at the name. Everything on the menu started with 'Corny' or ended with 'Log'. Like, 'The Corny Hoagie' "

Me: "Why is that funny, is it because it sounds very similar to a 'toasty torpedo?!' " (callback to previous post)

(6th grader tilts head back and starts laughing)
