There was controversy at a local primary school earlier today, when a male student who had already paid two visits to the toilet during his science lesson, was denied a third visit by his frustrated teacher, and was made to pay dearly for the consequences.
The boy, aged about 7, had looked a bit pale and 'ropey' ever since the teacher, Moys Kenwood, 57, had turned up to teach the lesson. Five minutes in, he raised his hand for permission to leave the room, and scurried out once this had been given.
After returning to the class, he gingerly sat down, but didn't look comfortable, and it was no surprise when his hand went up again five minutes later. Again, he was allowed to go out.
When, however, he repeated his request with two minutes of the lesson remaining, Teacher Moys asked him to wait for the bell, which was "about to" ring.
In truth, what was "about to" happen was something entirely different.
As Kenwood turned towards the blackboard, something akin to curtains ripping could be heard, followed by a bubbling, then the sound of a pail of water being emptied onto a concrete floor.
"I expected the worst, and I expected right. The boy was stood in a lumpy, brown sea, and the tide was going out. The smell was already horrendous."
The classroom was evacuated, and left to the cleaners, who, it's hoped, are of the opinion that it's better to have some work, rather than no work at all.
