Heheh! That last one reminds me of a biology lesson I'd organised for a class of eleven-year-olds. Each pupil was presented with a woodlouse in a Petri dish and a lens, along with a worksheet to fill in based on their observations of said minibeast.

Question One was "Name your animal". Twenty-nine out of thirty answered "woodlouse." The other one answered "Jimmy."
