Poll: Better Homework Excuse Than "My Dog Ate It"?

Which of these school-aged heroes and heroines would have had the best excuse for not having their homework done? At least better than the classic retort, "My dog ate it!"

Most of these characters never said these lines, but they could have (all based on the general plot description of their film or TV show) - if they didn't actually do their homework in addition to their unique extracurricular activities!
