How long until you think I get asked about this one?

I have a classroom full of ninth grade boys.

Yes, weep for me. Unless you do that all day. Then I will weep for you.

But anyway, how long do you think it will take for them to bring THIS ONE up in conversation?

I'm betting first thing tomorrow. Any takers?

Hmmmmm.... you have spoken rightly, fair friends.

It would also up my street cred, as well....

Oh, you're doomed. They're totally going to be laughing about this one before the first bell rings...

This will teach people to cut muffins in US airspace, by golly! Though if Bush declares a war on flatulence, I might have to go into hiding.

Liz from I Speak of Dreams. It wasn't the flatulence, it was the matches she kept striking to burn off the odor.

And I'm with Fred & redkudu.

One of my fourth graders already brought it up. It's amazing how up they are on current events....it's the ones that are past I wish they could remember.:)

I have a freshman class with only four girls in it. If it comes to their attention (from ANYwhere) I dread the results!
