Christmas Cheer

There's a girl in one of my classes who's bit hyper. OK, more than a bit. I've spoken with the mother a number of times, and she's been sympathetic but she has difficulties controlling this child herself.

This morning, the girl handed me a Christmas card. As I read it, it was all I could do to keep from busting out laughing. There was no affect in the girl's face at all, however, so either she picked this card at random, or mom decided I needed a little sympathy. Here's the verse from the card:

May all your Christmas lights stay lit,
And all your presents be a hit.

May joy and laughter deck the halls,

and then you open the card, for the punch line:

And no one bust your Christmas balls.

Totally inappropriate, but it made my day.

If anyone would like to share their own stories of wildly inappropriate humor from students, I could always use a little more Christmas cheer.
