6th grade late slip

[This note is from 6th grade at Punahou. I believe Mrs. Danford asked me to write her a note explaining why I was late for class, and I created this justification with the help of Scott Kikuta. We were obviously heavily influenced by Calvin and Hobbes.]

Sometime in 1992, Keaka Jackson wrote:

Martians kidnapped me. They held me at laser point with an atom disintegrator death ray which looked like a banana. They threatened to destroy the world with an object that looked like an orange. I saw them purchase these weapons at the snackbar. They forced me to have fun They held me captive for 5 minutes, but they let me go free when I told them I personally knew Elvis. They agreed not to destroy the word, and that is why I am late. Everybody should be thanking me. The below martians have signed this excuse slip authorizing their mistake. They are very sorry.

    Oh. my. god. I love you!

    That’s so priceless. I’ve pulled a few things like that in my school career… one involving a cell phone costume and a phone book.

    Heh, ok I’ll bite, what the heck is the story with the cell phone costume? You can’t leave us hanging like that!

    Wow… I just caught that reply… Heh.

    I decided to get out of class during a phone book drive… so I brought my cell phone costume to school, slipped it on in the bathroom, and went down by the cafeteria to wave in donors. Nobody questioned me.

    In case you’re wondering, yes, I did have a cell phone constume laying around the house… I was a cell phone for about 6 years running for Halloween.

    That is so L.O.L.! And the funny thing is is that i am in 6th Grade, I also used to use late notes, and my name is Keaka! The only thing that I think is different is that I’m a girl (Keaka is short for my middle name Keakulina, thats why it’s my nickname.) This late note is so funny! I think that I should try it on my teacher! l.o.l.!
