Real Men of Genius

My son wrote the following article for his class based on the Bud Light commercials.

I enjoyed it and thought you might too.

Tonight, Bud Light salutes you, Mr. I work too hard in English class guy.

While all the other children are out playing sports, you’re reading Moby Dick, Grapes of Wrath, and War and Peace all at one time. When the other students go to bed, you’re the one that stays up writing the full eight logs, and working on your grammar.

Yes, you are the straight A, Valedictorian, fortuitous student that is always attentive and focused in class.

When Ms. McCoy asks a question, your hand is the first to reach for the sky.

That is why we salute you today, tomorrow, and maybe sometime next week for being the intelligent human being you are, Mr. I work too hard in English class guy.

Way to show everyone up and serve as an example for the way we should act in English class.

Inspiration oozes from every pore known to exist on your frail but literary gifted body. Continue in your conquest for literary achievement in the Ivy League, in your memoirs, and on your deathbed, granting us with quotes from Shakespeare long after we’ll have forgotten them. To be or not to be, that is the question; you have chosen to be, to be the sparkling diamond in a pile of coal.

Sleep well tonight Mr. I work too hard in English class guy because your night to shine, is every night. That is why you keep everyone awake because you are so bright, darkness evaporates and no one can sleep.

Turn off the light once in a while and let us shine for once, we may salute you, we may envy you, we may even cheat off of you in class, but we are not ignorant to your silly charade, we know what you’re up too, Mr. Teacher’s pet.

We may salute you now, but tomorrow, we won’t hesitate to nugget you and stuff you in a trashcan for making us look idiotic.

So enjoy our salute now, Mr. I work too hard in English class guy, because our recognition won’t last.

I only wish you could hear him read it because he does an awesome job of telling the story.
