(A student offers to clean the board for the teacher, who gives her a sponge to wipe it down.)

Teacher: *handing her the sponge* “That sponge is real; it was made from a live sponge.”

Student: *shrieking* “It’s ALIVE?!” *throws the sponge on the floor*

Teacher: “No, it’s not alive!” *student picks up sponge* “It used to be.”

Student: *shrieking* “IT’S DEAD?!” *throws the sponge back on the floor*
