Did you hear?

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class, because it was a weapon of math disruption.

And now hours later, this reminds me of a funny TRUE story.  A boy in Sam's class was one day messing around and "shot" a classmate with a finger gun hand gesture.  Sam said he'd never seen a teacher so angry.  He lectured the boy in front of the whole class calling the infraction the worst thing he'd ever seen in the classroom.  And then he gave the kid the assignment of writing a 1000-word essay on the subject.  The offender drew the gesture with the no symbol, like this...

And then he wrote, "A picture is worth a thousand words!"
