We bet he became a menace to society, like a serial killer — or worse, a blogger.
Ingesting all that lead from #2 pencils probably didn’t help matters. We’re told it causes behavioral problems and brain damage, traits that abound in the blogosphere.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
You see, every minute a kid spends gnawing on his pencil is a minute he’s not paying attention in class. Add up those minutes and your little brat can kiss an ivy-league college goodbye.
That’s why a British company called Concentrate has introduced a breakthrough product designed to get children to focus in school: pre-chewed pencils.
No joke. As if we could come up with this stuff on our own.
Concentrate believes students will be less likely to snack on a pre-chewed pencil, and thus more likely to get down to serious studying.
They just might have a point. We once borrowed a pencil from that weird kid in the fourth grade, and there was no way his mangled instrument was going anywhere near our oral cavity.
But here’s the question: who’s pre-chewing all those pencils?
We sure hope it’s not serial killers or bloggers. They’re crazy enough as it is.
