    My dog actually did eat my homework once. My teacher didn't believe me. :(

    Oh, that's sad--but when I was in junior high, a kid in my class came up with this classic: "I put my homework inside the piano to keep my little brother from getting it, and last night, our piano burned down."

    The whole class was in stitches!

    That's a real "gotcha!" answer, and, he had a viable point, considering the nature of the assignment. Hahaha.. I'd have given extra points for creativity and ecological responsibility. ;-)

    (Way to go paperless: require oral presentations!) ;-)
