No Tuna For Me

Do you see that little orange ball? Well, that is the reason that my tuna was not eaten for lunch. That little ball is a shark eye.

Today as I was observing a 4th period biology class, I lost my stomach and appetite and whatever else was left of my adventurous side. I used to love anatomy class when I was in college, but alas, no more.

One bouncing eye fell off the lab table. One disgusting child picked it up. One disgusted teacher said to "PUT IT BACK IN THE DISSECTING PAN!" One ( or two or three) screaming student scrunched their nose.

Two minutes later this little orange ball was found on the ground. To which one disgusted teacher yelled to "PUT IT BACK IN THE SHARK!", and one disgusting kid said that it wasn't from their shark. After inspecting all the sharks it was understood that this little orange ball was leftover from first period.

Yesterday I had to throw away my sausage for lunch after observing piglets being dissected. Today the tuna had to go. Thank goodness for back up oatmeal.

Tonite will be vegetarian nite.


  1. oh dear god, at first i thought that you had purchased a tuna sandwich and found a shark eye in it! GROSS!

    anyway, STILL GROSS!

    i remember dissecting frogs in 7th grade science class. i will never EVER be able to forget the disgusting smell of formaldehyde (sp) and the sick students who enjoyed playing with the dead frog's internal organs. BLECH! i don't know how you educators do it...

  2. I thought the same thing as MoFM...I almost went and threw all of our tuna out. *shudder*

    Sounds like you had a great time in class.

  3. That class would be good for my weight loss regime.

  4. Diet tips from Tales from the Ledge. LOL.
