Today in Class: Global Warming, Internet Invention, and Hell

We're getting ready to start reading Dante's Inferno. 

Me: What's an allegory?

Kid 1: Does it have something to do with Global Warming?

Me: What?! No!

Kid 2: Yeah...it does have something to with Global Warming. And...the internet?

Me: WHAT?! What are you guys talking about?

Kid 3: That's AL GORE, stupids, not allegory.

Me: *facepalm*

There's no way that kid 3 could've been the one who wrote "wright" on that paper.

LOL, this is awesome. It could have been worse. He could have started talking about the video game, loosely based on the story. Very loosely based.
