funny collage story

I was introducing my collograph lesson- similar to
Woody's but we are doing "action" figures a la Keith
Haring- and I explained how making the collograph
plate was similar to making a collage.
One of my more animated sixth graders said:
"OOhhh! I HATE that word! Co-la-ECKH! Collah..UGH!"
And on and on and on......It was absolutely hilarious!
I have never seen anything like it. There are words
that make me shudder sometimes, like racial slurs and
other offensive words, but I mean this kid could not
get the word "collage" out of his mouth without
practically gagging! Believe me, he kept trying, too.
The rest of us were almost in tears!
