Suicide vs. Numbers (Today in Class)

My class has been reading about samurai. They had just learned about seppuku, the ritualistic suicide that a samurai commits if he has lost honor.

Me: The samurai in this story acted cowardly. What should he do, according to the samurai code?

Kid: He should do Sudoku!

*facepalm*

HAHA awesome!

I always thought that if I had a heavy metal slasher band (note my picture and realize the chances of that happening are quite small) I would TOTALLY name it Seppuku!

Everyone would have been a lot happier if it were Sudoku!

Oh that's funny! It reminds me of a time when a friend of mine, doing a crossword, asked, "What's a seven letter Japanese word for ritual suicide?"

Someone ressponded, "Karaoke!"
