Say what?

Today we were learning about Abe Lincoln because it was his birthday and I really wanted the kids to understand why we have Monday off from school. I read a cute little book about Mr. Lincoln and asked the kids to give me some information. Little Mister raises his hand and says, "Abraham Lincoln was the commander of the virgin army!" Um.. the virgin army or the Virginia Army?

I died laughing, of course.

How about the student who came in and tried to sign hi to me because I taught him how to do it yesterday? In case you are unfamiliar with sign language..

this is the letter h
This is the letter i...
This is what I got instead...


Yes, the shocker
If you are unfamiliar with the shocker, it is a pretty graphic sexual innuendo.
(I'd love to teach you the graphic reference but my mom reads this)
Apparently, that's what I taught my kid.
It's also what he taught his mother at home, I'm sure.
If I get fired tomorrow, you'll know why.
