What is the most ridiculous excuse you've ever heard a child offer for failure to turn in an assignment?

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