pipe-bomb
We were discussing "The Book Thief" in class today and we had hit the section where Max is ill and the Hubermanns have to decide what to with him if he dies. A few students gave suggestions that weren't in the book, and one in particular said that they could always "cut him up into bite-sized pieces."

To that I replied: "Well, I suppose they *could* go all Sweeney Todd and grind up his body into hamburger meat, feed it to the Nazis. Those burgers would be really JEW-sy!"

We couldn't breathe for a full five minutes, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be jumped after school today. However, I have it on good authority that my Jewish students were laughing just as hard as the Gentiles, and one girl in 6th block was giggling as she claimed that "that was the first hamburger-themed Jew joke she had ever heard."

I almost made one of my SPED kids pee his pants he was laughing so loudly. And he's practically non-verbal! It was pretty hilarious, albeit terribly off-color. Am I a horrible person?

Every once in a while, you just have to roll with what you got. I love the rapport you have with your students!
