Remember that from the Art Linkletter show? If you're as old as me, you will. Nonetheless, kids still do say the darnedest things!
Today in Honors English 10, I mentioned that Nelson Mandela had been interviewed by Larry King and it could be found online.
One student said, "Is he the guy with the shoulders?"
I had to smile. "Michael, I think all guys have shoulders, don't they?" Everybody laughed.
"No, I mean is he the guy with the shoulders who always sits like this?" and he imitated Larry King, by gosh.
"Yep, that's Larry King," I said. I had never thought about it till that moment.
"He just about blocks out all the scenery behind him," the kid said. He had a point.
I came home and looked up Larry King on Google Images. Look below for yourself!
