There was almost an embarrassing situation for one man at a school in Battambang this morning, when, standing teaching students in a science class, he felt the elastic in his underpants slacken, and then the unmistakable feeling of sagging, as they slid down from his arse, and were left hanging like an empty hammock.
Moys Kenwood, 55, was explaining the mysterious forces of gravity to the class of 11-year-olds, when gravity, itself, took control of events. Kenwood:
"I mentioned to the students that gravity is where all things with mass or energy are brought toward one another. Suddenly, the elastic in my underpants gave way, and, having mass, they were brought toward the seat of my trousers. It was a bit odd, but I don't think anyone noticed what had happened."
However, one of the students in the class said to his friend:
"Did you see the look on the teacher's face? It was as if the elastic in his underpants had snapped!"
The whole class erupted in hysterical laughter.
