I guess a house does have to fall on some people. Tax Lady even pointed out the obvious -- "No weirdos!"

I just saw this article on Facebook, and it reminded me of a class I taught. One summer when I was teaching summer school, I discovered that the 4th grade students I was teaching did not know that meat came from animals. We had to do a project, so for our project they made mobiles. They put a picture of an animal at the top, then they found pictures in magazines of foods made from their particular animal. I'll never forget when one of them asked me, "What animal do potatoes come from?"

Apparently someone else would benefit from your class!

Yep!

For some reason this all reminded me of a thing I heard several years ago (I think on Jay Leno's "Headlines"). A woman wrote a letter to the editor of her local newspaper requesting that the city remove the Deer Crossing sign near her house because there were too many deer crossing there already!

A friend of mine told me a story from her college days in Vermont.

She and a car full of other girls were driving the mountainous roads in their area and they came across a sign stating, "Beware of Falling Rocks". One of the other girls turned to my friend and asked, "How do they get the signs up fast enough?".

One summer Dad decided to make homemade ice cream. Our 17 year old neighbor had never seen it made. She came over to watch. She saw the mixture in the canister, the canister put in the bucket, ice & salt added and the crank turned. She watched & waited. Later when Dad added more ice & salt, she asked "When is the ice going to turn into ice cream?"
