How did a monster eat the student's writing assignment? It went like this:
Writing Teacher: You haven't turned in your poem, so what's your excuse this time, mister?
WT: I am giving you a chance to say something, so speak up! Most teachers wouldn't even give you a chance!
S: Ah, yes...I was coming to ...no...I mean...I was on my way to school and um...a...I mean two dinosaurs came and attacked me. So I err...found a place to hide from the dinosaur -
WT: Wait - how many dinosaurs exactly were there? At first you said two, then now only one?
S: Oh...oops...I mean, yes...wait...no.
WT: Yes or no?! Make up your mind!
S: Yes - there were two dinosaurs. Then the wind blew my poem into the street, and so...eh..em...I went to get it back, then -
WT: So you're saying you did write a poem.
S: Ehh...wait, what was the question?
WT: (fustrated) Nevermind!
S: Okay, so I got my homework but the wind blew it out of my hand into a sewer...um...er...eh...wait, where was I? Ah, yes, I remember now. I fished it out of the sewer then a p-t...er...I don't know how to pronounce that flying dinosaur reptile thing. Okay, I'll just say "flying dinosaur" - grabbed it and flew into the night sky -
WT: Hold on! Didn't you say that this was on your way to school? How could it be at night?
S: Umm...I woke up early - no...um...I...er...meant morning. So, as I was saying until I was so extremely rudely interu -
S: Oops! I mean...um...the flying dinosaur was shot down by Daniel Boone. Then Mr. Bon...wait...Mr. Bone...what was his name again? Oh yes, Mister Bones...wait no. I meant Mr. Boone. Mr. Boone was killed by a knight. The homework drifted down after the flying dinosaur was shot into the mouth of a cute little monster. The knight started chasing me. I began to run away.
WT: Enough! I'm giving you ONE more chance to explain why you didn't turn in your homework!
S: You don't believe me?
WT: Good heavens no! How could I believe such nonsense? Stay here while I get the "Torture and Punishment Machine!"
S: Wait! I'll write the poem now. I still remember it!
WT: Fine. If you can do it in five minutes, I won't get the machine.
So this is what the student wrote:
The monster gobbled it up,
All week's work gone in a gulp,
Nothing to do but to hope,
Then a knight in shining armor began to chase me,
I ran, but it was too late,
He already decided my fate.
