During journal writing time a student asked how to spell 'spaghetti' which was then written on the board for everyone...that same student thirty seconds later:

Student A: "Adii, I don't know how you spell 'basghetti'

Having just shown our super worm, Thunder, to the class and introduced that he is in fact going to be going through metamorphosis soon while becoming a beetle.

Student A: "Ewww yuck."

Me: "Yes, we'll probably release him after. I don't want a beetle in our classroom."

Student B: "Nooooooo! I have him?"

Me: "Sure, you can take him home."

Student C: "Me too?"

Me: "You can share him, one week at B's house, one week at C's house."

*Student B and C whisper about how they are going to share custody*

Student D: "You could just cut him in half."

...

Me: "Then what would he be?"

Student D: *smiles* "Dead."

Almost a wise king moment. Almost.

No spears, but a lot of elementary ninjas and some near mass mutiny. Being the Lord of the Fruit Flies has finally come to an end.
