    What’s wrong with putting peanut butter on sesame bagels. It’s not like he’s putting it on garlic bagels.

    The key to reading Flannery O’Connor….

    Her focus is almost always an individual with a deep character flaw.

    Clue: Its usually a peculiarly Southern Gothic Catholic failing. So peculiarly Southern and Gothic that the Catholic part usually goes unnoticed.

    There’s a pivot point where that character has the opportunity to turn everything around.

    They almost never grasp the opportunity.

    [OK, sorry, I just saw her name there and was suddenly channeling Mr. Beardy teacher. I can’t help it. I think it’s a deep character flaw.]

    P1, Hand shaped bagels. What will they come up with next?

    P2, Actually, Phoebe that is surprisingly normal. Something that you can order at any bagel shack in the country.

    P3, That’s up to you. You’re the teacher!

    So is this it? He may be Milford’s new Rickey Henderson, but he eats slightly – very slightly – unusual things for breakfast?

    P3: That teacher is clearly evil… Wait… Is that the late Kenny Rogers?

    This storyline cuts like a knife through peanut butter. A little chunky and spread out everywhere.

    Phoebe is looking at us, letting me know she’s embarrassed for me to be reading GIL like the pitiful junkie I am. Damn you State Champion!

    I don’t believe they allow students to bring knives to school anymore.

    P1 – It’s a big hand, that’s not unusual. But shot from inside a duffel bag, that is unusual! The artist might be trying to get nominated for a Cinematography Oscar.

    P2 – “Nutsack Peanut Butter”? That doesn’t sound too appealing. And I see Mayor McCheese being suspended, what with him pulling a knife in class.

    P3 – We’re already done with Harper Lee? This class moves fast, despite The Mayor’s constant interruptions. But what is bullet point 1? “Wise wood”?

    And speaking of wise, it would be wise for you to read today’s issue of Mopped Up Thorp.

    “You’re still writing your bullet points on the board, how about letting us know when YOU’RE ready to start the class!” Boom, score one for The Mayor.

    P3: Mr. Spicoli, you are creating a major disturbance in MY classroom. “That’s the mayor to you. I’m just having a little food and learning about Flanner O’Conno and his wise odd”. Mr. Hand was going to bring the bagels to the front of the class but realized no one would want them and he’d be stuck with them.-- scene --
