A Tough Crowd

The other night, JT got out a bunch of little guys and played school with them. It's an odd assortment of students, featuring some pirates, a few knights, and some of the settlers from Jamestown (those who survived the starvation, disease, and malnutrition). Many of the students attended class with weaponry in hand.

Clearly, it's an unusual school.

If that wasn't already clear, the following conversation showed me that JT's Prep School is a special place.

JT (as the teacher): I like the way Bill is being so quiet.

Pirate student (also the voice of JT): Yeah, well Bill is so quiet because he's dead.

And when I looked carefully, Bill was a skeleton lying by a barrel of rum (he's on the left in the front row.....the bones are bleached out). I guess that would explain why he's so quiet.

Someone better call the Department of Education.

Where is this school's zero-tolerance policy on weapons! Apparently I'm not even allowed to threaten my students with a sharpened letter-opener, and they're all at least 18!

The Department of Education? In this state? I think many of them are in the same or worse shape than Bill. Oh and here, the zero-tolerance policy on weapons interferes with either the thorough or the efficient part of education law.
