Last Wednesday at English corner a student was telling me about an online flash game he's been playing:
Student: It's about a detective looking for a lost crate of seafood.
Me: Hmm, I've never heard of it. What's it called?
Student: "A Case of the Crabs".
Luckily, I got away with not having to comment on that one, unlike two weeks ago where someone spelled out P-U-S-S-Y and everyone looked at me for an explanation. One confused girl said "pussy?" and pronounced it like the adjective meaning "full of pus". "Okay, moving on..."
In other "My kids say the darnedest things" news, I was grading juggling essays (yes, juggling essays, don't laugh), when I came across a girl who has apparently been spelling it "guggling" this whole time. As in, "My sister tried to guggle three balls, but she can't. I think it's because I'm not a good guggler myself". Gah! Cute-asaurus rex.
