While talking about slavery, the question of where the term "African-American" came from was asked. After explaining the answer, this was asked by a brilliant 7th grader:

7th Grader: Mr. H, where do Caucasians come from? Caucasia?

The Afterlife

Another gem from Mr. Poop:

7th Grade Student: Mr. Poop, did you know some people don't believe in H-A-L?

Me: I'm sorry?

Student: You know like when you die. You can either go to Heaven or H-A-L.


You've Got to Play it Safe Around Electricity

This little ditty is a product of Mr. Poop's classroom:

7th Grade Student: Mr. Poop, if I plug an extension cord into itself, will it power its own self?

Mr. Poop: Yeah, why don't you try that one at home...

This story occurred in my class yesterday:

7th Grade Student: Mr. H, your markers are cricket.

Mr. H: What?

7th Grade Student: They're cricket.

Mr. H: Crooked?

7th Grade Student: Yeah. (Dejected)
