Meret’s class did a project to improve their writing: each kid wrote out a recipe for a holiday treat, and then the teacher typed them up in a cute font, and made a booklet bound with a little ribbon for each one to take home. The goal was to work on writing, spelling, and the idea of giving clear directions. Edibility or accuracy were not goals of this excercise.
With the names removed to protect the privacy of the individuals, I now present:

Somewhere I have a copy of a booklet put together in an elementary school in northern Alaska. The recipe for frozen flounder was

1) Put fish outside for a couple hours
2) ready to eat

fishsicles... hmmm. ask lucy about her dogs and poopsicles. sort of funny.
also, i was very proud of myself when i was about meret's age because the joke i submitted to the library's contest for a joke book was added to their collection. the joke was- where does the general keep his little army? in his little sleeve-y. ah, it's just as funny and fresh 20 years later.
