The Class Project



An elementary school class started a class project to make planters to take home to their parents. 

They wanted to have a plant in it that was easy to take care of, so they decided to use cactus plants. 

The students were given green-ware pottery planters in the shape of clowns which they painted with glaze. 

The clown planters were professionally fired at a class outing so they could see the process.  It was great fun! 

They planted cactus seeds in the finished planters and they grew nicely, but unfortunately, the children were not allowed to take them home. 

The cactus plants were removed and small ivy replaced them and the children were then allowed to take them home instead. 

The teacher said cactus seemed like a good idea at the time.  (See below)














Thanks Dan

So that's why kids end up being deathly afraid of clowns.

Sandra Fluke's condoms would be wasted on this bunch.

Ron, their names are Dick

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Admiral, I for one would have laughed and then questioned the teachers sanity.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, thank you kind lady.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scott, all clowns?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Adrienne, He does seem to have a bit more to him, huh.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Lady, so would Sandra herself.

Then, the clowns looked as if they had their pants down and their privates covered with fig leaves!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

AOW, You like a little mystery in your men, huh.

Mr. AOW said...

That's why they call 'em pricks, I guess.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Mr., that's a prickly subject.
