My younger brother (often referred to on this blog as Younger Brother) is a teacher of highschool age children. This is awesome for me because:
- As a teacher, he is useful as a reference point for my wildly inaccurate drunken boasts, and
- His teacherhood has found and catolouged gems like this:

My quote of the week today:
“How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling it a leg doesn’t make it a leg.” – Abe Lincoln
I go over the quote and then talk about what it means, being honest with yourself and things like that. This one student, funny kid, of course takes it off on a new tangent while I’m trying to be serious. He’s like “Aww how sweet would that be! The tail would be like a wheelie bar and the dog could just ride wheelies all over the place!”
Totally threw me for a loop. I was laughing for like 10 minutes. Maybe you had to be there, but I was cracking up.
