Mini is top of the class in RE (which I guess shows the value of a good old fashioned well rounded pagan upbringing if nothing else)

From her class work book I found this classic

'There are many varied and diverse religions and beliefs in the world... some of which aren't very well known - like the Quackers'.

Hi SS- if you like stuff about student bloopers, etc, there are two books (anthologies) by Richard Lederer called "Anguished English" and "More Anguished English" which are a good laugh, stuff like "Romeo's last wish was to be laid by Juliet", or "Squad helps dog bite victim" longer messed-up essays, etc.

Mum was putting little poppet to bed and they were kneeling by the bedside.
"Let's say our prayer to Jesus" says Mum
"No, Mummy. Tonight I want to say our prayers to Harold".
"Harold? Who's Harold?"
"It's God's real name. You know....

Our Father who art in heaven
Harold be thy name"

Did they invent porridge, I thought they only got their oats ?

Whoever invented porridge deserve a medal. Breakfast food of the gods, IMHO.
