Absorbent and yellow and porous is he!

A while back, I was English-ninja-ed by two of my middle school boys, both instigators of the “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Sex” incident.  During cleaning time, they came into the staffroom and asked me, in English, for a sponge.  Proud thoughts flitted through my head about how intelligent my students must be to know such an off-the-wall piece of English vocabulary.  My bubble was finally burst when they left the staffroom, sponge in hand, humming the theme song to the Spongebob Squarepants cartoon.
