Well, isn’t it obvious? I thought teachers were smart. Let’s go through this step by step.
I said I haven’t got my homework with me, the dog ate it. Which means that it is now digesting in my dog’s stomach. And you know all about that because you taught us how digestion works in health class.
And after all of that I’m sure it’ll come out the other end. Of course it won’t be in one piece, you probably won’t be able to read it and it might smell a bit. But you’ll get it.
I’ll take my dog for a walk every day before school and rummage through all of its poo to find my homework. It might take a few days, I’ll smell really bad and be late almost every day. But you’ll get it.
“Alright then, have a seat. Ok class, due to Rick’s unfortunate mishap with his dog, we’re not going to mark your homework today. It also means that I’m assigning everyone except Rick with extra homework. And I’ll do it too. Your homework for tonight, is to get a gas mask.”
