Denver teacher Groovygrrl has started a new blog called Caught in Class in which she plans to record the things kids say in school. The reason behind this grand venture? “Most people who don’t work in schools have NO IDEA how funny it is,” she says.

Here’s a sample entry:

Kid: Like, who thought of pot? Teacher: What do you mean? It's a plant. Kid: Yes, but who thought of it? Teacher: You mean, who thought of smoking it? Kid: Yeah. Teacher: I don't know. But I think it's a weirder thing to drink milk. I mean, who was the first person to look at a cow's udder and think, "I'm going to drink whatever comes out of those?" Other kid: Martha Stewart.

Think you’ve got something better? Well, she’s accepting submissions.
