You know that saying, “there’s no such thing as a stupid question?” As it turns out, there is.
The following conversation took place this afternoon in one of my classes in the middle of a debate over whether or not it was fair to ban peanut butter in grammar schools because of other students with peanut allergies (clearly we were on topic in my class…which is not social studies, or english or any course you should be having debates).
Student: “But it’s not fair. What if I was allergic to ham or turkey?”
Me: “I don’t think that those kind of allergies are as common or as severe, but since you’re not, then it doesn’t really matter, does it?”
Student: “Whatever. What is turkey even made out of anyway?”
Student: “I mean, you know, ham is from pigs and steak is from cows, where does turkey meat come from?”
That, my friends, is the future of America.
