classic classic classic, 19 September 2005
Author: Spuzzlightyear from Vancouver

Mind boggling expose of a, I think, delinquent teen (You know he's trouble when he ends his sentences with 'Eh?') who gets frustrated with school and starts etching out on his desk, soon he's visiting his principal and discussing 'infantile reactions'. Funny comparisons between 5 yr olds and teenagers are shown, and soon the teenager makes a chart and thinks HARD about how 'old he is today'. He finally admits to being 10 years old when he doesn't get what he wants (His dad ranks him LOWER HAHAHA) and tells his principal he'll try to start acting his age BY NEXT YEAR. Interesting to note as well how school staff are quite willing to give kids weapons.
