A 16-year-old ladyboy student in a school in Bangkok, caused chaos in an English lesson when he answered a question about color preference by declaring that he liked white, but that his favorite color was 'slime green'.
His classmates exploded with laughter at this 'clever' play on words, as if it had been the funniest thing uttered since the universe had formed, but the teacher merely stared back at the student, expressionless, full of hatred, and wanting him to be plucked out of the room by a giant hand from the sky, which would then throw this pathetic piece of garbage onto the top of a 'human scrapheap', after disembowelling it.
This did not happen, however, and, after the raucous laughter had eventually subsided - a full minute later - the teacher asked the student:
"Maybe you'd rather choose pink, being, as you are, more than a trifle effeminate?"
There was silence, broken only by the sound of a pin dropping two miles away.
"Or," he continued, now warming to his task, "brown, perhaps? Being, as you most certainly are, a babba-stabbing shit-sniffer..."
The silence became deafening.
Just then, the headmistress walked past the class, and commented how quiet and well-behaved it was. She asked what the students were learning, and why one boy was standing up. Kenwood told her, and again asked the ladyboy what his favorite color was. The ladyboy said:
"My favorite color IS ... lime green," with emphasis.
The headmistress, delighted, congratulated the teacher, and turned to go to her office. Behind her, the mischievous students whispered:
"Slime green! Slime green!"
