An English teacher was left counting the cost of his catastrophic mistake this evening after a 'creative idea' he turned into an inspirational lesson about dinosaurs, turned into a bloodbath, as an ancient curse was invoked, raising the ghost of a giant moth which descended upon the school in Bangkok where he teaches, and ate several children.
Moys Kenwood, originally from Hull in East Yorkshire, had the idea to teach his students about the prehistoric beasts in connection with Past Tense verbs, but he got it sadly wrong, as Mothra was raised, and the students, who were familiar with the mythological beast, scattered in all directions.
The Mothra, a whale-sized moth, batted several of the children to death with its enormous wings, before spraying silk over others, encapsulating them in a larvae ball for later consumption.
The beast, which normally only fights to protect itself, is an adversary of Godzilla, an actual Japanese dinosaur regularly seen in Japan, and especially Tokyo, late at night.
Kenwood, speaking during breaktime at his school, told us:
"It was a good enough lesson plan, but I'd overlooked the ancient curse. A little more research and I'd have been OK, I think.
Oh well, it's all a learning curve, I suppose."
Police, being both lazy and ineffectual, even when they rouse themselves from their laziness, were not interested.
