Busted: The Thai ESL student who tried to slip something past me!
So today, a student finally handed in their New Year poster.
We'll call him Johnny. That photo isn't Johnny. The assignment was to finish the sentence "This year, I want to..." with a few ideas. Lovely, smart, totally-not-a-bad-boy Johnny had written:
"This year, I want to read more read more books, play a computer game every day, read hentai with my friend and learn how to bake a cake."
So, somehow, I totally know what hentai is. Don't Google it if you're at work or of a sensitive disposition! FYI, it's Japanese anime porn. Obviously, Johnny had no idea that I know what hentai is and wanted to have a little joke with his friends. Haha. Haha. Hahahahaha :D
Me: So, what's hentai then?" *curious face*
Johnny: .......... cartoons, teacher." *totally straight-faced*
Me: Oh really? What kind of cartoons?"
Johnny: It's.......... anime, teacher." *still straight-faced!*
Me: Oh, right. What happens in these hentai anime cartoons?"
Johnny: Um......... um............" *starts getting red*
Me: ................I know what hentai is.
Finally, all his friends who had been holding in their laughter gasped and let it all out. "You know hentai teacher!?" Utter disbelief. I just raised my eyebrow. It really was hilarious, poor Johnny didn't have a clue what to say.
Me: It's cool, you're a young guy... but this is inappropriate for school. Change it, because this poster is going on the wall.
Johnny: OK teacher. Sorry.
Me: Nevermind, eh.
