Or, a better way to put it is the 'Jehovah' scene in Monty Python's Life Of Brian.

I was in that play when I was in high school. My little brother was in it too. We also did the Monkey's Paw the same night. Also, I was in choir and we performed a medly of Phantom songs. I sang base (Yes. It's true.) Anyway, I kind of got off track. Cool story. Good memories.

But yeah.. we read that story in English class (two years in a row.. same teacher, different grade)
We even drew papers from a bag. And then whomever got the paper with the black dot, we all threw balled up pieces of notebook paper at the person. :lol:

That reminds me of another amusing anecdote. (haha!)
In 9th grade, my math teacher said that he didn't appreciate things being thrown at him.
Unless it was money, but they he'd keep the money.
The next day, I brought in some pennies, thinking I'd spend the day throwing them at him.
He said no. :P
Oh geeze, that class had a lot of laughs. (Math is my subject, so I think I got away with a bit extra than I should have.. like falling asleep during and drooling over the desk. True story. The teacher then had the entire class leave the room and then they all banged on the door to wake me up... puddle of unexpected drool.
Hilarity ensued. )

I've had many weird 27 moments...

I played a joke on my friend. we were designing a board game cause we had nothing better to do, and I hid some 27's all over the board.
