Promiscuity


Look - I've no idea. We were learning to write 'lede' paragraphs for newspaper articles and this popped up. 'Did you copy and paste that?' I said.
'No.'
'I think you did. What does promiscuous mean?'
'Dunno.'

'So you copy and pasted, right?'
'Whur.'

'Whur', by the way, seems to be a special word for 'I don't know and don't care'. It's banned in my classroom. Despite this, it finds its way into many a conversation.

Eat It!


I do believe this is something to do with Weird Al Yankovic. In fact, by allowing a child to copy out these lyrics, I've probably violated the DMCA and Peter Mandelson will be round drooling and banging his head repeatedly against the door whilst a variety of record company executives cheer him on. Take a moment to visit 38 Degrees and help fix the only really broken bit of 'broken Britain'.
