Honey Worms And Silk Bees

| Learning | February 12, 2016

(In science class we are talking about the states of matter.)

Teacher: “Can someone give me an example of a liquid?”

Student: “Silk.”

(The whole class laughs.)

Teacher: “So, you’re saying silk is a liquid?”

Student: “Yeah.”

Teacher: “So, if you were wearing a shirt of silk it would just flow off?”

Student: “Yeah.”

(Teacher goes to the storage cupboard, brings out some silk and a stick and prepares a demonstration.)

Student: “No, not that silk. That one that comes from bees.”

Teacher: “You mean honey?”

Student: “Um… yeah, I think it’s honey.”

(Everyone including teacher laughs, that boy’s nickname is now Silky Spano.)
