Real Life Conversations in 6th grade: Nuances edition

The backstory:  In a Middle School creative writing class, 6th graders were being reminded that their stories may feature lots of imaginary elements but no violence and no death.  Characters may be creatively removed, but it ain't gonna happen by force.  

Student J:  Ms. B, can my story have someone being chased by a chainsaw?  He won't die.

Ms. B:  No.  No chainsaw.

Student J:  Okay.  No chainsaw.  

Then he paused and tilted his head before he spoke…..

Student J:  Crowbar?

We all erupted with laughter.  Because, crowbar?  Turns out no crowbars are allowed either.

Dang it.
