Now, the absurdity of this is causing a lot of us to twitch unpleasantly, but it makes a little more sense when you place it in context (not really, I’m joking). In the other teacher’s defense, here are several other things that she has previously mistaken for a bomb:
- A goldfish:
- Ramen noodles:
- Her own hat:
- The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man:
- Kansas City, Missouri:
- Ernest Borgnine:
See? It wasn’t that the teacher was unjustly suspicious because Ahmed Mohamed is Muslim. It’s just that she has some issues. Deep issues.
