Uncertainty can be happiness

"Security is a false god," or running around the world as an FSO

Amusement of this week from the kiddies…

Interesting incidents at my middle school this week:

Me: “Make a question that you can answer with, ‘I’m sure we will’. ”
Student 1: “Will we impeach President Lee Myung Bak?”

This is in reference to a guessing game that I played with my advanced students. I was asking the student who was guessing why he made a connection between two words.
Me: “Uh, why did you think of cow when you heard Lee Myung Bak?”
Student: “Oh, mad cow! Lee Myung Bak let mad cow in to Korea!”
Korea just let in US beef into its markets after a ban of 5 years due to BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy or mad cow disease) fears.

My question: “So, what are you going to do when you get home from school?”
One of the girl students points to a boy and says, “He’s going to go home and watch yah-dong!” And promptly runs away as the said boy tries to smack her (this IS middles school) while the other kids howl in laughter. Apparently, yah-dong is a slang term for adult movies. Go figure.
