We're learning about Egyptian literature in class now, and I mentioned King Tut.
Kid 1: How'd he die?
Me: Well, no one knows for sure. There was some suspicious stuff surrounding his death. But archaeologists have examined his body, and he does have a big hole in his head. (I take a breath to explain more...)
Kid 2: Ohmygosh! Did someone shoot him?!
Entire Class: *slow-turn of heads to stare at Kid 2*
Kid 2: What?! Is that what really happened?!
Entire Class: *facepalm*
