  1. You know, right before you posted this I saw a t-shirt and thought of you…

  2. When a phrasal verb is misused, hilarity ensues. Wait, that almost-kinda rhymed.

    Here’s hoping this isn’t a true story! Most scarring class ever.

    • This is the stuff of nightmares. Luckily, the worst I’ve had is some kid who “for sure broke (his) ankle” in class, despite being able to walk afterwards. I told him that if he had a break he’d have to go to the hospital emergency room immediately. His diagnosis promptly changed.

  4. Hahaha now that’s awkward .. ;p

    Love this one!

  6. Love her hausfrau-chic attire! Did he choke on nothing? I do that all the time. I hope I don’t die from choking on nothing.

    • If he’s anything like me, it was probably a Bic pen cap. I know it’s only a matter of time before I choke to death on one. I’m like a goat; chewing things is a bad habit of mine.

        LOL… I do both… it would be a pencil eraser for me, though. Chew right through the darn things…

    Most unfortunate!

  8. Yeah well, I never get why people use this euphemism in the first place. What’s wrong with saying someone’s died or “Son, this is your great-grandfather in this photo, you never met him because he’s been dead for several years.”

    When I hear someone passed something I always think about their bowel movements. Does that make me weird?
