A three stanza limerick about a boy who got 'slung in detention.'

The Headmaster’s School Dinner

Danny got caught with a lighter,
if only he’d been a bit quieter,
he got slung in detention
while forgetting to mention
his dad was a champion fighter.

Well daddy came down to the school,
threw Headmaster right into the pool,
how the children did laugh
at this premature bath,
kids these days can be ever so cruel.

Now this tale gets a little bit grimmer,
see, the head was a bit of a sinner,
he took the offenders
and stuffed them in blenders
and gobbled them up for his dinner.

Exactly, there's nothing more delightful than reading about the (fictional!!!) slaughter of school children =D In fact, nothing brightens up my day more ...
Thanks so much for the comment

Very hilarious, it's almost a child story that you would find in a twisted Dr. Seuss book, but it's even better than that. Keep up the awesome work.
