"I used to think that the human brain was the most fascinating part of the body. Then I thought, `What part of my body is telling me that?'" - Emo Phillips
and now one from a student:
"read my poem dude." it was a poem about his car. i had the kids try to write sonnets, or if they couldn't do that, at least write a poem. i laughed out loud to hear him walk into my class and say that first thing to his friend. that's what an english teacher dreams of.
