Two fun stories of kids doing what kids do.

The first from Alien Loves Predator [scroll down]

True story from when I was in 6th grade. One English class, our assignment was to write our own limericks. Of course, I spent the whole period writing filthy, spanky, putrid ones (is there any other kind?) that got under Hillary Clinton's skin, before anyone ever knew who she was. Me and my buddy David snickered at 'em in the back the entire time. As we walked by Ms. Erickson's desk when we were dismissed, I pretended like I was about to hand in my paper, at which David hollered, "YOU'RE REALLY GONNA HAND THOSE IN? WITH ALL THOSE CURSES????" Ms. Erickson was, of course, now verrrry interested in what I'd written....

The second comes from Random Penses, in which his 4 1/2 year old daughter comes up with a lie so complex as to be almost believable. So, yup, when she's 13 he's doomed.
