Gon, Octo Gon. 003: License to Kill with Laughter

Scene: A third grade geometry class, immediately after the "Introduction to Polygons" lecture.

Angeline: Teacher, I need help.

Lacey: Okay.

Close up of Angeline's worksheet. Two questions - What is the name of a polygon with six sides? With eight sides?

Lacey: What shape has six sides?

Angeline: I forgot.

Lacey: Remember the trick? What letter does the word six have that helps us remember?

Angeline: X . . . hexagon!

Lacey: Good job! Now, how many arms does an octopus have?

Angeline: Eight.

Lacey: So what would you call a shape with eight sides?

Angeline: *blank look*

Lacey: If an animal with eight arms is an octopus, then a shape with eight sides would be an octo . . .

Phil: (gleefully) PUSSY!!!

Close up of Lacey, emphasizing her inability to speak for several minutes. End scene.

P. ost S. cript
Just fits.


  1. Also, insert funny look from Katie to Lacey...

    Just what kind of games are you playing at that table?! ;)
